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.

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

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).

Great short read

The 4th Man (Quincy & Rainie, #6.5), my 21st read from author Lisa Gardener. Another entertaining and well-written read from her. I was given an Audible copy of this book & am voluntarily reviewing it. I was impressed and enjoyed the vocal variety & inflections of narrator Luke Daniels . Owning both the Kindle & Audible editions I was able to follow along while being read to. I look forward to reading more in this series. (RIP Marley January 20, 2014 - July 24, 2018).

Weird story

I purchased this thinking it was a full book so that’s my bad for not checking but I found the overall story line to be strange and not what I e become accustomed to from this author.

Enjoyable

Good, short story with a twist. Nice mix between different character series - Quincy/Rainie and D.D. Warren. As always, Luke Daniels is an excellent narrator. Recommend.

This is a short story

Good story narration etc but I assumed (without my glasses) that I was downloading a book. My fault but still feel cheated.

Short, sweet, concise

Fan of Lisa Gardner, my time for reading books is severely diminished these days. It was easy to follow and short which is my favorite kind of story. I wished we could have had other voices it was tricky distinguishing the man from the woman but otherwise good story.

The 4th Man held my interest until the very end.

I enjoyed it! It held my interest until the very end - which is not always the case.
