The Third Victim By Lisa Gardner
The FBI Profiler series Book #2
3 Stars

From The Book:
An unspeakable act has ripped apart the idyllic town of Bakersville, Oregon, and its once-peaceful residents are demanding quick justice. But though a boy has confessed to the horrific crime, evidence shows he may not be guilty.

Officer Rainie Conner, leading her first homicide investigation, stands at the center of the controversy. It's hitting too close to home, bringing back her worst nightmares, threatening to expose her secret sins. But with the boy's life at stake, she won't let anything stop her from finding the real killer.

With the help of FBI profiler Pierce Quincy, Rainie comes closer to a deadly truth than she can imagine. Because out there in the shadows a man watches her and plots his next move. He knows her secrets. He kills for sport. He's already brought death to Bakersville and forever shattered the community. But what he has really come for is Rainie -- and he won't leave until he has destroyed her.

My Thoughts:
It's almost like history repeating itself for Raine as she struggles to come to gripes and believe that 11 year old Daniel O'Grady shot and killed a teacher and two young classmates. Raine herself has nightmares about being accused of killing her own mother fourteen years ago. Supervisory Special Agent Pierce Quincy from the FBI enters the turmoil to study child killers and to offer assistance to a small police force that up to now the largest crime they have investigated is a traffic accident. The two start out cautiously but eventually find they work well as a team. As anyone can guess that has read books of this type...they are probably destined to be more than just a "team".

I have a measure of hope for this series. I'm not a big fan of romance books and usually skip them all together but I will wait ( )

All of her characters are flawed in some way and this makes them even more interesting.The story itself is quite intense and frankly, I didn't figure out the ending until the author chose to tell me. A very good book. ( )
