Review of THE THIRD TO DIE by Allison Brennan

Bestselling author Allison Brennan
I am pleased that to be chosen to participate in the
Harlequin Winter Mystery/Thriller Blog Tour.
My rating is based on the entertainment value for me. The book does have one sexually graphic scene and numerous violent scenes.
I absolutely love Allison Brennan’s Lucy Kincaid and Max Revere series, so when I got a chance to read this first book in her new series, I snapped it up!  What a wild and exhilarating ride!  The main characters are the ambitious and on so intuitive FBI special agent Matt Costas, the leader of the new Mobile Response Team, and a detective on vacation who discovers the dead body, Kara Quinn.  The interactions between the two of them was electric and their dialogue was mesmerizing.  The story begins when Kara discovers a dead body at Liberty Lake, in a rural community.  The MRT is mobilized to assist since the murder may be the work of the Triple Killer, a serial killer who comes out of hiding every three years and kills victims on March 3rd, 6th and 9th.  The story was fascinating and uniquely Brennan, with a fast pace and a complicated story that drew me into its web and wouldn’t let me go.  The suspense was ratcheted up throughout the story and the book was an action-packed thriller that did not let me down in my expectations.  My favorite characters were Catherine, the profiler, and Ryder, the techie.  Catherine has a mystery in her past dealing with her dead sister Beth and I really want to know more about that and her.  Ryder seems to be a young, highly intelligent geek who was raised to respect his superiors and is a perfect addition to the team.  Again, I look forward to learning more about him.  In short, I look forward to more, more Allison Brennan for sure and the next MRT book will be on my TBR list as soon as I hear about it.  I loved this book and cannot recommend it highly enough for fans of suspense thrillers!
