3.5 Stars

A good mystery, you won't figure out who did it. But that's also where I took out a star. It was lame.
I mean really.
Another thing that bothers me a little in the book are the chapters from a 13 year old perspective. Her thoughts and wording are much too mature. I didn't buy it. ( )

Right Behind You by Lisa Gardner is an enthralling mystery about a police hunt for a suspected spree killer. Although this latest release is the seventh installment in the Quincy & Rainie series, it can be read as a standalone.

Following the discovery of two murder victims at a local convenience store/gas station, Sheriff Shelly Atkins calls on retired FBI Profiler Pierce Quincy to help put together a profile of the suspected killer. Quincy is stunned to learn the identity of the suspect is his soon to adopted foster daughter Sharlah's seventeen year old brother Telly Ray Nash. After learning that Telly's foster parents, Frank and Sandra Duvall, have also been murdered, Quincy fears Sharlah might become his next victim. With a massive manhunt for Telly underway, Quincy, Rainie and Sheriff Atkins try to piece together a possible motive for Telly's apparent rampage. Why would Telly want to murder his foster parents? What reason could he have for gunning down two apparent strangers? And the biggest question of all: can they capture Telly before he harms Sharlah?

Eight years earlier, Telly killed his drunk and abusive father during a violent attack in which both Telly and Sharlah feared for their lives. With their mother also dead, Telly and Sharlah became wards of the state and they were sent to live with different foster families. Now, after bouncing from one bad home to another, both Sharlah and Telly are living with good families who care about them. Although she has been unable to verbalize her feelings, Sharlah is happy that Quincy and Rainie are adopting her. Meanwhile, Telly is less than a year away from aging out of the foster system but Frank and Sandra are making progress in preparing him for this next stage of his life. So everyone wants to know: what precipitated Telly's suspected killing spree? And after discovering evidence that he has apparently been stalking Sharlah, what does he plan to do to his sister? There are no clear cut answers to any of the investigators' questions and they are frantic to capture Telly before he kills again.

Initially, Sheriff Atkins and Quincy's suspect that Telly's killing spree has something to do with his and Sharlah's past. However, the deeper they dig into Telly's life with the Duvall's the less certain they are that his troubled childhood has anything to do with the current crimes. A few incongruous details turn the investigation in a completely new direction but Telly remains the focus of their investigation. As the manhunt for Telly continues, will newly discovered information prove he is innocent?

With fiendishly clever twists and turns, Right Behind You is a spellbinding police procedural that fans of the genre are going to absolutely LOVE. The storyline is intriguing with plenty of suspense as the chapters alternate between different perspectives including enlightening chapters from both Telly and Sharlah's points of view. The investigation moves at a fever pitch as Sheriff Atkins and Quincy feverishly follow every new lead while at the same time, the manhunt for Telly adds increased urgency to the storyline. Lisa Gardner brings the novel to a very dramatic and quite shocking conclusion with a plot twist that is impossible to predict. An absolutely outstanding mystery that I highly recommend to old and new fans of the Quincy & Rainie series. ( )

I picked this up at a book sale. Originally, the cover grabbed my attention, then the synopsis.

Eight years after her brother beats their father to death, Sharlah is finally starting to feel settled with Quincy, a retired FBI profiler and his partner, Rainie. When Telly, her brother reemerges into her life in an unexpected way, Sharlah is left reeling, trying to figure out who to trust and what the truth is.

I have to say, I absolutely loved this one. I didn't realize that this was part of a series until part way through. I found myself thinking, these characters are too good not to have appeared somewhere before. I am honestly so relieved to know there are more Quincy & Rainie stories out there. I am definitely going back to start at #1. The relationship between Telly and Sharlah was so well portrayed. I was left guessing right up until the very end.

I am happy to be a new Lisa Gardner fan and look forward to reading more! ( )

In Lisa Gardner's next thriller following her runaway New York Times bestseller Find Her -- Right Behind You sees the return of (now retired) FBI Profiler Pierce Quincy and his wife Rainie Conner who have now adopted Sharlah. Several years ago her older brother Telly Ray Nash killed their drunken father to protect them.

But when it appears that Telly has killed again, this time it can't be for her protection, can it? Especially as it is later discovered he's also killed his foster parents.

This story is a lot slower than other Lisa Gardner books. I still enjoyed it, but as the story unravelled I found myself more drawn to the relationships of families involved - the abuse that went on - the secrets and lies. It's lik
e the author has gone from fast-paced FBI police procedural crime novel to a character driven story. Nothing wrong with that, it's just not what I expected.

Rainie and Quincy still make a great couple, the writing style is enjoyable and easy to read. It may be light on the FBI profile and police procedural aspects, but Right Behind You still made for a great read because the characters were so endearing, and quite often physically and emotionally vulnerable.

I'm interested to see what Lisa Gardner's next book (comes out Feb. 19 2019) titled NEVER TELL, is going to be like. It apparently features Detective D.D. Warren joining forces with vigilante Flora Dane to investigate the murder of known associate of Flora's infamous kidnapper. ( )

There are gaps between books when I pick one up by this author. Yet, after reading this book, I will be making a bigger effort to not let this happen. While this is book seven in this series, I had no problems jumping right into this book with the characters. Quincy and Rainie made a good duo. They both kind of shined in this book. I only say this because I felt that Cal Noonan did play a big lead part. He was important in helping to solve the case. Yet, to be honest, it was Sharlah that helped to bring her brother in.

Yes, this is a suspense novel but it is more character driven. Thus why it was great that the characters were so engaging. Thus because I enjoyed the characters so much, I had no problems reading this book and staying engaged until the last page. If you are an established fan or a new reader of Lisa Gardner, you will like this book a lot. ( )
