Publisher's Summary

FBI Profiler Pierce Quincy and Officer Rainie Conner return in a baffling cold case in this short story by New York Times best-selling author Lisa Gardner.

A young woman is found strangled in the stairwell of a college library, only her sneakers missing. With no physical evidence, no signs of sexual assault, and no witnesses, all the police have to go on are the three men who were in the library with her: her boyfriend and two campus security guards...all of whom have secrets, none of whom can be proven guilty.

Five years later, ex-FBI profiler Pierce Quincy and his wife, former police officer Rainie Conner, agree to consult on the still-unsolved case, delving into deep background to comb for any clue that will lead to the woman's murderer. But with no leads and the case colder than the body, will they be able to build a case against one of the three suspects, or is there a fourth man out there? And if the killer has eluded the police this long, how far will he go to ensure justice is never served?

With Gardner's singular ability to delve into the minds of criminals and law enforcement alike, "The 4th Man" is a shocking look at the reasons for taking a life...and just how far profilers need to go to learn them.

    I am a 59-yr-old woman and an avid reader all my life. I will usually find an author I like, then read everything by them. Love audible!

    "Not great."

    I wasn't very taken in with this story. It was a bit slow and predictable. I'm not a fan of Lisa Gardner, but every couple of years I'll try one of her books. They certainly aren't terrible. It's just that they don't transport me into picturing the characters, being right there with them

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

    Story
    "It's all about the shoes!"

    Almost 9 years after releasing Say Goodbye, the 6th and most recent novel in her FBI Profiler/Pierce Quincy series, Lisa Gardner releases a The 4th Man, a FBI Profiler short story that also includes D.D.Warren and of course Quincy's wife Rainie Connor. Later this month Gardner will release Right Behind You which is the 7th novel in the Quincy/Profiler series.

    The 4th Man is an interesting cold case murder mystery set in Boston. The real surprise is that Luke Daniels narrates. She seldom uses male narrators even for male voices (exceptions are Kirby Heyborne once and Mikael Naramore once).

    "Entertained me thoroughly!"

    I absolutely loved this story. The setup, the execution, and the reveal. I can say thoroughly that I did not see the ending coming!

    "couldn't believe how bad this book is"

    what a bad storyline, terrible characterization, and the motive for a murder - no, really! I am done with this author because she insults the intelligence.

    I am not a short story fan because it doesn't go deep enough, but the twist at the end was worth the short read.

    "Great short story"

    First be aware this is a short story; therefore, you should not spend the credit. However, it is well worth the $5 or so if you're desperate for a good read (aka 'snack) in between credits. I enjoyed the narration and the plot.

    "SHORT STORY...NOT A BOOK!"

    I take the blame for not reading enough of the description to realize that this was a short story. The story line was ok, nothing wrong with the performance. However, I simply can't give more than 3 stars for a short story, when I prefer 12 hour books.
