Publisher's Summary

New York Times best-selling author Lisa Gardner is at the top of her form as she takes us on a desperate manhunt for a killer who preys upon his victims’ minds - just before he claims their lives. What do you do when a killer targets the people you love the most? When he knows how to make them vulnerable? When he knows the same about you? These are the questions that haunt FBI Special Agent Pierce Quincy. The police say his daughter’s death was an accident. 

Quincy will risk everything to learn the truth - and there’s only one person willing to help. Ex-cop Rainie Connor had once been paired professionally - and personally - with the brilliant FBI profiler. He helped her through the darkest days of her life. Now it’s time for Rainie to return the favor. But this killer is like none these two hard-boiled pros have ever encountered. This twisted psychopath has an insatiable hunger for revenge...and for fear. 

As the clock ticks down to one unspeakably intimate act of vengeance, the only way Rainie can unmask this killer is to step directly in his murderous path. She will become a murder waiting to happen. She will be...the next accident.

Lisa Gardner's FBI Profiler series

The FBI profiler series is an older Lisa Gardner series. The Perfect Husband is not available at Audible, but is available at Amazon as a Kindle ebook. The other books are available at Audible. The series books in order are The Perfect Husband, The Third Victim, The Next Accident, The Killing Hour, Gone, and Say Goodbye. The series main characters are FBI profiler Pierce Quincy, ex-cop Rainie Connor who becomes Quincy's second wife, Quincy's daughter Amanda who appears only in a case that solves her murder, Quincy's other daughter Kimberly who becomes an FBI agent, and Kimberly's husband who works in Atlanta for the Georgia Bureau of Investigation.

The entire FBI Profiler series is great. All books are filled with intensely suspenseful situations and are outstanding thrillers. The next accident is merely representative of the wonderful books in the series It is also a great stand alone novel even if the prior books in the series have not been read.

Highly recommended.

Solid book but the Audible details are wrong

Any additional comments?

This is a solid book and a solid performance but my issue lies in wondering who actually narrated and whether or not this is an abridged edition. Audible lists The Next Accident as abridged and performed by Kate Burton (a favorite of mine who read Intensity) but the book is nearly 11 hours long with chapter breaks. I could not tell that it was abridged nor did it say that it was abridged or unabridged. What I do know for sure is that Kate Burton is not the reader; the reader is Anna Fields, who does read the unabridged CD version of the book. The narrator says that the book was read by Anna Fields at the end and I compared the voice with the next book in the series, which is read by Fields, and the voice is the same. I will try and bring this to Audible's; it was not bothersome to me in this particular incident but I think listeners should know what they are paying for.

What happened?

I have purchased many books from Audible. This story was good the recording was not so good. There were at least eight places in the book were the audio repeated. Very annoying and constantly made me think there was something wrong with the book or my phone. Made listening to the story less enjoyable.

So so

Very badly edited. Kate Burton is a great voice but the editor really failed.
The story isn't anything special. Gratuatious gruesome.

entertainment and educational

enjoyed the character development especially as this is a series. while I figured out the killer, I don't think most people will. even with that the details kept it interesting.

Another good one

Good story line. Kept me interested till the end. Only one part I didn't like; the dream about the baby elephant. Just unnecessary and very hard to listen too - I hate hearing about any animal suffering and this just upset me. I don't see that it added any value to the story and I wanted to stop listening after that. But I forged ahead anyway and was glad I did. One small mention of the baby elephant later in the book (which I skipped over) and that was it - thank goodness!
