A grisly murder occurs at the convenience store near the home of Pierce Quincy and Rainie Conner.  Both retired FBI agents, they offer their help to the local sheriff to track down the gunman caught on camera.  The shooter turns out to be Telly Ray Nash, the estranged brother of their foster daughter Sharlah.

Telly Ray and Sharlah ere split up by foster services after their father murderer their mother, then was killed by Telly Ray.  After his foster parents are found dead, it’s thought he snapped and went on a rampage killing spree.  When recent photos of Sharlah are found on hisx phone, Quincy and Rainie know he’s coming for their daughter next.

I thought I figured out near the beginning of the story who the shooter was.  Then came new information that changed my mind to another shooter.  Then further in the story I went back to my original theory.  Then with more information, a new theory emerged.  A huge twist emerged at the ending when the shooter is revealed and it was an awesome twist.

It served to remind me you don’t second guess genius and that’s what Lisa Gardner is  – a genius at writing psychological thrillers.
