Is he a hero?
Eight years ago, Sharlah May Nash's older brother beat their drunken father to death with a baseball bat in order to save both of their lives. Now thirteen years old, Sharlah has finally moved on. About to be adopted by retired FBI profiler Pierce Quincy, and his partner, Rainie Conner, Sharlah loves one thing best about her new family: they are all experts on monsters.
Is he a killer?
Then the call comes in. A double-murder at a local gas station, followed by reports of an armed suspect shooting his way through the wilds of Oregon. As Quincy and Rainie race to assist, they are forced to confront mounting evidence: the shooter may very well be Sharlah's older brother, Telly Ray Nash, and it appears his killing spree has only just begun.
All she knows for sure: he's back.
As the clock winds down on a massive hunt for Telly, Quincy and Rainie must answer two critical questions: Why after eight years has this young man started killing again? And what does this mean for Sharlah? Once upon a time, Sharlah's big brother saved her life. Now, she has two questions of her own: is her brother a hero, or a killer? And how much will it cost her new family before they learn the final, shattering truth? Because as Sharlah knows all too well, the biggest danger is the one standing right behind you.

Excellent storey And performances.
I loved this story. I have some personal experience with a few of subjects brought in throughout the book, So I was very interested in how things turned out, for the children especially. I am usually able to figure out these type of stories without trying, but this one kept me guessing. The story itself is very interesting, is the boy good or evil, how about the other boy, or even the girl? The new plot, which I won't ruin for anyone (I hate when people give spoilers away in a comment), was interesting. I wish there was a little more info on the characters that was about, but I know the book can only be so long. Also I would love to see a book about The Sharla and Telley.

I own 400-500 audiobooks and this is right up there with the best. I actually called out sick to work one afternoon so I could finish it. I loved everything about this book. The narration was spot on, the story - fantastic!!!! I plan on getting many more Lisa Gardner books!!
I only bought this because it showed up as a recommended title! After listening to Coban and Baldacci for months, I decided to give it a try.
I nave have a new favorite author!
