"Lisa Gardner's next thriller following her runaway New York Times bestseller Find Her takes her wildly popular brand of suspense to new heights. Is he a hero? Eight years ago, Sharlah May Nash's older brother beat their drunken father to death with a baseball bat in order to save both of their lives. Now thirteen years old, Sharlah has finally moved on. About to be adopted by retired FBI profiler Pierce Quincy and his partner, Rainie Conner, Sharlah loves one thing best about her new family: They are all experts on monsters. Is he a killer? Then the call comes in. A double murder at a local gas station, followed by reports of an armed suspect shooting his way through the wilds of Oregon. As Quincy and Rainie race to assist, they are forced to confront mounting evidence: The shooter may very well be Sharlah's older brother, Telly Ray Nash, and it appears his killing spree has only just begun. All she knows for sure: He's back. As the clock winds down on a massive hunt for Telly, Quincy and Rainie must answer two critical questions: Why after eight years has this young man started killing again? And what does this mean for Sharlah? Once upon a time, Sharlah's big brother saved her life. Now, she has two questions of her own: Is her brother a hero or a killer? And how much will it cost her new family before they learn the final, shattering truth? Because as Sharlah knows all too well, the biggest danger is the one standing right behind you"--Provided by publisher.

This was one fabulous novel that I could not put down.
A mystery story of hate, passion and crime with a great twist at the end.
I would definitely recommend reading any of Lisa Gardner's books if want some suspense in your life.

Very well written story of what it means to be family--especially enjoyable to those of us who have had to create our own family when the birth family wasn't so great. Nothing else I can tell you that isn't a spoiler. If you only read one book by this author it should be this one. If you have read other Quincy novels, this one will pleasantly surprise you. I was especially happy with the return of Shelly Atkins (who didn't just recover from her burns, she thrived). About a seven hour read.

Quincy and Rainie have become foster parents to a troubled young girl Sharlah....a case
where a double murder at a gas station leads police to believe there is a spree killer...it was
slow, boring and oh so repetitive

I quite enjoyed this book - as I love all of hers. However, the last few pages when the story was wrapping up was a bit awkward with the bad guy opening up all the details to a teenager. A bit far fetched but nonetheless I enjoyed this book.

Maybe it's because I haven't read any other books by this author, with these characters, but I couldn't get into it. I gave up about 100 pages in.

Thriller about an foster child and her crime-enforcement foster family and their attempts to solve a crime that may involve the brother of the foster child. Could the two children's harrowing experience involving their biological parents relate to the present day rampage and murders of the boy's current foster family be related. Secrets of their past are revealed. A little bit too unbelievable having the girl essentially be involved in helping to solve the crime. I could of done without that and the entire explanation of the whole story in the last two pages. A little below par.
