#2022Book4
This one was better than the first in the series and pretty much on the same level as the second. One of the more interesting characters from the first book was back and featured prominently, but one of the best characters from the second book was missing completely. The story itself was pretty solid, though predictable. The best part wasn't even the mystery, though, it was the side plot featuring Brigid's parents and their history.

#106 I am a huge fan of Brigid Quinn and I can‘t wait to devour this book!

Caffeinated_Reader Well there was a lot to process with this one. Such a tail spinning read. Some of her sentences leave me thinking about them for weeks, that‘s one of my favorite things about Mastermans writing style. Also I‘m a huge Brigid Quinn fan, she‘s witty and tuff and even her temperament is perfect. I need to buy the 4th one still but I‘m definitely looking forward to reading it! 3y

Another awesome addition to one of my favorite series! This wasn't even my favorite book out of the series and it was still way better than others like it. Very good but now begins the long wait for book four. #favoriteauthor

mcipher You got me - which is the first book? I want to try it! 5y
Samantha.1020 @mcipher Rage Against the Dying is the first book in this series. The 2nd book is my absolute favorite so far! Let me know if you do give this series a try! 5y
saguarosally @Samantha.1020 I still have Rage Against the Dying on Mt. TBR. Worth kicking it up? 5y
Samantha.1020 @saguarosally For sure! I'm a huge fan of these books and this series! Let me know what you think if you do read it! 5y

I love crime novels and I really enjoyed this one. A retired FBI agent, Brigid comes to help a former partner on a case for a guy who is on death row. Her partner think she didn't do it. Brigid has her own issues to deal with that make you really connect with her as a character. Well written, great pacing, interesting characters, I will be reading more of Becky Masterman. Oh and then I find out that there are TWO novels previous to this one!

I enjoyed this book. I have liked all the books in this series. This was a quick read and I enjoy the main character, even with her flaws. Overall, a good read.

Samantha.1020 I'm so excited to read this book as I'm a huge fan of this series., 6y

Mehso-so

I picked up Becky Masterman's crime thriller not realising that it was the third in a series and I think you need to read the earlier books to understand the family and friendship dynamics as I found both them and Quinn's behaviour around them difficult to believe in while the mystery itself never really grabbed me and becomes overwhelmed by Quinn's family problems.

Caitriona When I was younger it didn't bother me so much, starting part way through a series. These days I just can't stand it! 6y
IReadThereforeIBlog I don't mind so much when I know in advance (there was nothing on the Amazon blurb for this that indicated it was part of a series so I thought it was a standalone) or when the author gives you a short summary or conversation to bring you up to speed on the big points. I have a couple of books on my TBR pile that are the second in a series and will give them a go. 6y
