The Third to Die: A Novel

We rated this book:


Kara Quinn is on leave from the LAPD in her hometown of Liberty Lake. While out jogging she discovers the body of a young woman, throwing her into an FBI investigation of a serial killer called the Triple Killer. He kills three people in nine days every three years. The FBI has just assembled a Mobile Response Team, and this is their first case. The body Kara discovered was number seven, which means they have eight more days to save two more people. The Third to Die is always a cop, so the stakes are high. Both Kara and the FBI are not going to let him slip away again, but how do you catch a killer who has gone so long without being caught?

This was a fairly long book for a thriller, but it worked out well because there were so many different main characters. The length allowed for the development of all of them, including the killer. The part I enjoyed the most was watching the FBI profile unfold as they work the evidence and look for patterns, allowing them to somewhat predict what the killer’s next move would be. If you enjoy thrillers that have characters that are more than just surface-level, you will enjoy this book. I would also recommend it to anyone who finds profiling as fascinating as I do.
