Publisher's Summary

They call him the Lovebird Killer, a merciless fiend unleashing a flood of unspeakable cruelty upon Sacramento’s most loving couples, young and old. This real-life monster’s reign of terror has left the city’s residents paralyzed with fear.

All but Lizzy Gardner. Because hiding from monsters isn’t Lizzy’s style, not since she faced the madman who kidnapped and terrorized her as a teenager. So when a routine workers’ compensation case suddenly leads her and her two young assistants onto the killer’s trail, Lizzy revels in the chase. She is determined to bring this psychopath to justice before he has the chance to claim another victim. She never imagines he could be two steps ahead, watching her every move and plotting his bloodiest, most triumphant conquest of all. He knows Lizzy won’t go down without a fight. And that’s just the way he likes it.…

    "Good Thriller"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes. Very good and plausible suspense thriller.


    Which character – as performed by Kate Rudd – was your favorite?

    I thought Kate Rudd did a great job narrating all.


    Any additional comments?

    Very good 3rd book in the series. I don't see any more and certainly hope that Ragan will continue with these. Although there is quite a bit of jumping from past to present it is done in a coherent way that is easy to follow. I also really liked that at the beginning of each chapter there were quotes from real life well known serial murderers. I thought this added to the credibility of this book.

    "Great Book! Did not want to put it down"
    If you could sum up A Dark Mind in three words, what would they be?

    Amazing, Thriller, Action


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    It was a book I did not want to stop.


    Any additional comments?

    After readying the other reviews I almost didnt download it. There is nothing I hate more in a book that does not wrap everything up. For the person that made the comment about the couple being attacked by those guys. Please go back they did tell what happened to them and it was resolved. I'm not sure if you missed it or did not realize what happened.

    the book does jump timelines quite a bit which was some times a little hard to follow but i would def recommend this book!

    I love espionage, legal, and detective thrillers but listen to most genres. Very frequent reviews. No plot spoilers! Please excuse my typos!

    "Another great Lizzy Gardner thriller!"

    A Dark Mind is Book 3 in T. R. Ragen's six book Lizzy Gardner thriller series.It completes my listening to the series. It is a superb thriller as are the other 5 novels in the series. Kate Rudd does an great job of narration of all six novels.

    I highly recommend this entire series.

    Thrillers are my genre of choice for fiction while romance novels are just the opposite. I remain impressed that romance writers such as Theresa (T. R.) Ragen, Jessica Ann (J.A.) Redmerski, and Lisa Gardner (who writes romance novels as Alicia Scott) also write great thrillers. I suppose I should also mention Nora Roberts who writes thrillers as J. D Robb. and Sandra Brown who writes romance novels using several pen names, but neither of them write thriller novels of the quality of those of Ragen, Redmerski, or Gardner.

    "What a Mess!"

    This book has so many plots going, that she forgets to tie up all the loose ends, leaving part of a kidnapped couple taken by 4 men instead of the main villain, half resolved. I don't understand why she even included their kidnap/torture because it didn't fit in with the rest of the book in anyway. The reader does a good job of keeping your interest, as she stops short of a monotone, but she can do nothing to this pile of sorted plots make sense.

    "It's the Story..."

    Book 1 was very good. Book 2 was ok. But book 3 has been difficult. A well known and thought of (?) woman PI catches lucky breaks without demonstrating any skill. She will manage to fall deadly prey because of poor choices!? I'm unable to finish the book knowing the end is only because the author will ignor common sense and use extravagant exaggerations to turn the story to establish the conflict and miraculously "solve" the confict.
