The Next Accident

Lisa Gardner is an author that I was meaning to check out this year and I have.  The last couple I was not impressed with, but were her earlier works.  This one was a bit further in and I really enjoyed it.  I did miss a book in the FBI Profiler Series, but it really didn't phase me since the first book I'd read in this series actually happened after this book, so I already knew the relationship between Pierce and Rainie. 

FBI Agent Pierce Quincy is haunted by his daughter's death in a drunk-driving accident. Pierce knew about his daughter's problem with alcohol, and about her loneliness. And so, he is sure, did the man who killed her. Rainie Conner is an ex-cop with a past overshadowed by violence. She was once involved with Pierce in a harrowing case that brought them together personally and professionally. Then, he came to her rescue. Now it is time for her to help him. This killer is different. He has an insatiable hunger for revenge - and for fear. He isn't satisfied with taking his victims' lives - he wants to get inside their minds and strip them of every defence. And his target is Quincy's surviving daughter. Rainie believes that the only way to stop him is to put herself directly into the killer's murderous path and herself become - the next accident.

The book kept me on my toes and there is the obvious answer that isn't so obvious and the hmm maybe answer and the BOOOM answer if you are paying attention.  I like books like that. ;)  There isn't anything really graphic and the story line kept me intrigued. 

I'd definitely recommend this one for people who like who dunnits that go at a quick pace. ;)

What author do you recommend to people who like fast paced books?
