Sister Read Review by Norma & Brenda
Yeah! Quincy & Rainie are back after nine (9) years! Where have they been and what have they been doing?
Lisa Gardner touches on these questions in Right Behind You and we were totally satisfied with the answers that we obtained after reading this novel but we felt that the story was also about some of the supporting characters that were introduced. It’s not all about Quincy and Rainie here. So with that being said it absolutely works as a standalone book.
LISA GARDNER IS OUR QUEEN OF CRIME THRILLERS!
RIGHT BEHIND YOU by LISA GARDNER is a well-written, interesting, emotional, exciting, captivating, brisk, and a suspenseful read that we both thoroughly enjoyed. This was definitely a page turner and hard to put down for both of us. Lisa Gardner has been one of our favourite and go-to authors since we first discovered her back in the mid-2000’s. Lisa Gardner has always gotten one of us out of a reading slump.
“Because as Sharlah knows all too well, the biggest danger is the one standing right behind you.”
Quincy is called in to join a team of local law enforcement officers to profile the identity of a perpetrator suspected of committing multiple murders with the help of his wife Rainie who is a former police officer. The suspected perpetrator is Quincy & Rainie’s soon to be adoptive daughter, Sharlah’s long lost brother Telly. The stars of this tale are Sharlah and her dog Luka, a former police officer. Makes us wonder what Lisa Gardner has in store for them. The team included Quincy & Rainie, Sheriff Shelly Atkins, tracker and very proud cheese maker, Cal and the help of a few unexpected characters. And what an exciting team they made. This was an engaging mix of characters each of them bringing so much to this story that we quickly came to love.
What makes a family? When do you become a family? How do you become a family?
Loved the team combination of profiler, tracker, and sheriff and the issues of domestic violence, social issues, adoption, and addiction that was woven into the storyline.
To sum it all up it was a well written, well-researched, suspenseful, interesting, fast-paced, quick and easy read with a satisfying ending from one of our favourite authors. Would recommend!
