Right Behind You by Lisa Gardner

Right Behind You

I’ve read quite a few of Gardner’s books and enjoy the usual scary, creepy, what-was-that-noise feeling as you read late at night.  This is not like that.  It’s a very well written albeit, sad at times book.  You’ve got Sharlah at 13 years old who witnessed her brother kill their abusive drunken father  (this is NOT a spoiler, it’s in the book description). She’s about to be adopted by Rainie and Quincy, two profilers.  There’s a shooting and it appears to have been done by Telly, Sharlah’s brother. My beef with the books is how much a 13 year old is involved in the searching and the police meetings.  Other than that, it’s a good book and a page turner.  One of the things I very much enjoyed was learning about SAR (search and rescue) trackers.  Gardner did her homework on that and it really comes through in the story.  There’s good characters and a couple of lovable dogs that kind of steal the show.  Definitely worth a read.
