I chose this book because I had read a later book about Kimberly Quincy and it kept referencing her past - which is told in this book. I may now have to go back to find the book about Rainie's past as I'm assuming there is one.

That means I was predisposed to liking this book as I was already intrigued about what exactly happened (which was only alluded to vaguely in the later book). Gardner's pacing is excellent as always. She does an excellent job of crafting a thoroughly twisted story.

The only reason I downgrade this one to 3.5 stars is that I predicted most of the major twists (which is unusual in Gardner's books - and no, I didn't get them from reading the later book; the foreshadowing felt heavier than usual) while, at the same time, the "and this is why" part of the twist came out of nowhere and didn't feel foreshadowed at all. It seems odd to ding a book for being simultaneously too predictable and too unpredictable but that's just how I feel so I'm going with it.

Nevertheless, it's a good book and I'm definitely glad I read it.

Do yourself a favor and skip the Prologue. Not only is it sexually graphic and upsetting, it also spoils the anticipation of what happens in the story. Otherwise, it is a very interesting read with well-rounded characters and interesting side stories.

When FBI Special Agent Pierce Quincy's daughter is killed in a drunk driving accident, Quincy knows it wasn't an accident. He hires Rainie Connor to find out what happened. Little did he know that someone was after everyone he cared about and trying to frame him. Quincy has to find out who is doing this and stop him before the next person he cares about is killed. This is a page turner from beginning to end.

Could be an interesting story, cussing
