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.…

I prefer mystery/thriller genre including YA with some non-fiction. I dislike and attempt to avoid novels that include the paranormal.
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.
Amazing, Thriller, Action
It was a book I did not want to stop.
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!
Yes. Very good and plausible suspense thriller.
I thought Kate Rudd did a great job narrating all.
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.
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.
I love books! I have been reading since I learned how and have found so many genres that I cant live without! There's nothing better than loosing yourself in a good book and I cant wait to get my next one.
I am in Love with this series. The characters are realistic, relatable, and complex. The plots are all unpredictable and the writer has a very very vivid imagination. Hannibal Lecture is a ballerina compared to the monsters lurking here!!
Someone is preying on couples, especially happily married ones, but why? Dubbed the Lovebird Killer, he has the city of Sacramento in fear. Lizzy know she must go after him, but she is still recovering from her own brush with death at the hands of a serial killer. What Lizzy doesn't know is the Lovebird killer is watching her and has evil plans for the troublesome PI.
I'm a busy mom who loves to listen to books. Mostly I listen on my way to and from work.
Love her stories and all the other little stories between the characters. It always keeps me to where I don't want to stop listening.
I truly enjoy the characters and how this isn't your typical "man-saves-the-day" hero story. can't wait to listen to the next one!
