Publisher's Summary

Ex-FBI agent Brigid Quinn, now happily settled in Tucson, doesn't visit her family in Florida much. But her former partner on the force, Laura Coleman - a woman whose life she has saved and who has saved her life in turn - is living there now. So when Laura calls about a case that is not going well, Brigid doesn't hesitate to get on a plane.
On leave from the Bureau, Laura has been volunteering for a legal group trying to prove the innocence of a man who is on death row for killing his family. Laura is firmly convinced that he didn't do it, while Brigid isn't so sure - but the date for his execution is coming up so quickly that they'll have to act fast to find any evidence that may absolve him before it's too late.
Edgar Award and CWA Gold Dagger finalist Becky Masterman's third Brigid Quinn audiobook is the masterful follow-up to Fear the Darkness and Rage Against the Dying.

Critic Reviews

"A crime novel that transcends the genre - a twisting, high-stakes story with characters so real and so recognizably human, that it breaks your heart a little. Brilliant." (Shari Lapena, author of the New York Times best seller The Couple Next Door)

Bridget Quinn is a great character but this story was a dud. It was so slow and really not as interesting as her two previous outings. The characters were dull, and the pace was maddening. First time I really had to make an effort to finish the book.

I have read all three books in this series. I really enjoyed the first two - I thought the plots were suspenseful and the characterizations were fairly original. Unfortunately I can't say the same about *A Twist of the Knife*. The self reflections and internal musings on Brigid's part got annoyingly repetitious - to the point where I wanted to say *alright, alright, we get it! Now move on.* Also, I got sick and tired of hearing about all the Quinn family's dysfunction. The specifics given to the reader/listener did not sound all that dysfunctional, for one thing. For another, I didn't get why *Mom* is blamed for everything. It seemed to me that as far as specific behaviors, *Dad* was more inappropriate, what with his throwing things and sharing the grisly details of his police work with children under 12 years old. All of Brigid's angst about her family of origin and how it impaired her emotionally was just not convincing. And saying that, I thought a lot of things in the book were less than credible. For example, - and I'm going out on a limb here - I think I have read that dropping a hair dryer in the bathtub isn't lethal. (used to be but safety measures now prevent)
My last complaint is that the narrator doesn't get the tone right for a first person characterization of a seasoned and tough retired FBI officer.
On the positive side, I do like Carlo's character and I'm grateful that Brigid didn't call him *perfessor* one single time in this book. I wish that his part in these books wasn't limited to the role of supportive spouse. He has a very interesting back story that I think could be used to great effect.
I can't say that I won't read anymore books in this series because the first two were great. I AM going to remove the Brigid Quinn series from my *buy new releases immediately* list.
