New York Times bestselling 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.

From the Paperback edition.


  • One of Gardner's Best, but......

    By Sue Whalen
    Fast paced, good plot, interesting characters. But that switch of characters in the final chapter? Nope, doesn't work. Oregon Sheriff Luke Hayes could not assume FBI Supervisory Special Agent Quincy's identity, wig and expert makeup notwithstanding, and fool another agent who knows him well. What about voice tone and inflections? mannerisms? Facial expressions? Would never fly. The wrap ups in Gardner's stories keep me not giving the 5-star ratings which her books otherwise deserve.
  • Amazing!

  • Pretty good....

    By Lenox252
    The premise of The Next Accident is great although at times, pretty unbelievable even for a thriller. For some reason it's hard to "like" Rainie's personality & attitude in this story, but the rest of the characters make the book worth reading. On to Lisa Gardner's next book-I've LOVED all the ones I've read up until this particular one.
  • Awesome story
