Nothing is so dreadful that malicious imagination cannot improve on it; we know from the opening passages of The Third Victim that the High School shooting which breaks the heart of the small Oregon town of Bakersville is not as simple as it seems. Young Danny, son of the sherriff, is found with two smoking guns over the corpses of two schoolfellows and his favourite teacher--which for much of the town leaves things open and shut. For Rainie Conner, the young policewoman in charge of the case, things are not that simple--not least because she was once in Danny's position when found with the corpse of her abusive mother, blood and brains in her hair. For Pierce Quincy, an FBI profiler who has taken on school shootings as a break from the slow dying of his daughter, it all seems too pat. And someone is out there talking loudly in the diners and bars of the town, making sure that everyone knows what they ought to be thinking. Lisa Gardner's stylish new police procedural thriller is ingenious in the way it takes what we know from other cases and works inventive variations and spectacular twists on it. --Roz Kaveney

From Publishers Weekly

In her new thriller (following The Other Daughter), Gardner deftly probes the psychology of school shootings while developing a cast of complex, compelling characters. Rainie Conner initially joined the small-town police force in Bakersville, Ore., to escape the ghosts of her past. When she responds to a call from the local school and discovers students screaming, bodies lying inert in the rooms and one young boy holding two guns, however, Rainie find herself leading a controversial investigation and struggling to contain her childhood memories. The fact that the boy is the son of the town sheriff, Rainie's superior and friend, only intensifies the pressure Rainie endures from members of the community, the FBI and the media. Although she tries desperately to do her work amid the growing criticism, Rainie begins to question her own fragile psychological stability. Fortunately, she finds solace in the arrival of the gentlemanly Pierce Quincy, an FBI profiler with a sharp mind and a soft shoulder. The duo eventually reach the conclusion that someone else must be responsible for the massacre, someone who may have recruited the boy to do the shootings. A suspenseful, curl-up winter read, this thriller teems with crisp, realistic dialogue and engaging characters. (Feb.) Forecast: Even though Gardner has only three titles under her belt, her adept use of language and her strong characterizations will ensure her a broad, loyal following. Readers won't be disappointed to learn that Special Agent Pierce Quincy will reappear in her next offering, which is still untitled.

4.0 von 5 Sternen sehr spannungsgeladen - a real pageturner 29. Januar 2003
Von Simon
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
Das ist ein Thriller, der alles hat, was dazugehört: eine weibliche Hauptperson, mit der man sich gut identifizieren kann, da sie auch ihre "dunklen" Seiten hat, einen psychopathischen Killer und einen sympathischen FBI-Agenten. Außerdem jede Menge glaubhafter gut beschriebener Charaktere. Bis fast zum Schluß habe ich die falschen Personen verdächtigt. Ich wollte ein paat Seiten vor dem Einschlafen lesen und plötzlich war es 2 Uhr morgens und ich lag total aufgekratzt im Bett. Dieses Buch ist sehr schwer aus der Hand zu legen!!

Lisa Gardner hat zwar eine sehr schöne und ausdrucksvolle Art zu schreiben, trotzdem zieht sich die Handlung etwas zu sehr in die Länge.

Ich habe nicht mal 2 Tage zum lesen gebraucht. Ein Buch von Anfang bis Ende mit Spannung geladen. Eine Person , die in jedem Buch von Ihr vorkommt glaubt man almähllich schon zu kennen und schon kommt eine neue Überraaschung. Ich hoffe Ihr nächstes Buch erscheint bald, damit ich es auch wieder verschlingen kann.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Another excellent thriller from Lisa Gardner! 12. August 2001
Von Jonathan Burgoine - Veröffentlicht auf
Having read "The Perfect Husband," and "The Other Daughter," I was well ready to pick up "The Third Victim," when I saw it on the shelf in my store. I gobbled the book in a single night, and have to say that this is definitely of higher calibre writing than the other two.
For one, the character depth of the heroine and the villain is much more complex: I was three-quarters of the way through the book and still unsure of who I could trust, who might be the killer, and why this was all happening. Starting with a contemporary ugly reality: the school-shooting slaying of two students and a teacher, this book takes off from there and continues with a semi-manic pace throughout.
Gardner allows you into the mind of the killer without giving who the killer is away, which is a rewarding experience, but it is in Lorraine, a sherrif in the town where the shooting has happened, that the truly good writing occurs. A woman with a somewhat shady past of her own, this shooting may be about her in some way, and it's a great ride finding out just how.
The only quibble I had with the book was the occasional plot wrinkle that made me blink in confusion. There were a few passages I had to read twice to understand - not many, mind you, maybe only twice, but it did call a minor break in my reading.
Regardless of those minor stumbles, grab this book. It's a thriller perfect for those of us that like a healthy mix of mystery tossed in to our edge-of-seat-reading.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Very good, Ms. Gardner - Waiting for another book! 4. April 2001
Von Ginny - Veröffentlicht auf
I had not read any of the reviews or blurbs about "The Third Victim" before I read the book. When I was reading it and realized it was about a school shooting, I almost put it down, feeling that we have had enough of this subject in the news, I didn't need to read it in ficton.
I'm very glad I didn't leave it. "The Third Victim" is about so much more than 'another school shooting'. I promise you will never see the news in the same light again.
Another surprise for me, was the author's reference back to "The Perfect Husband". This is not a series book however, the reference is made and dropped. I was also surprised that I remembered the previous book so vividly after reading it more than four years ago. That alone is testament to Lisa Gardner's writing ability.
"The Third Victim" is a well plotted mystery with characters who are flawed, but very real. Once started this book is very hard to put down for annoying things like work and sleep.

4.0 von 5 Sternen New Author 6. Februar 2001
Von Tina - Veröffentlicht auf
A horrific school shooting brings us the best and the worst in the sleepy little town. The sherriff's son may be involved. In comes Rainie, "primary cop" on this investigation. With the help of FBI agent Quincy, will she be able to prove that Shep's 13 year old son did not go on a killing spree?
I had never read any of Lisa Gardner's books before. This book is a hard to put down thriller. I enjoyed the narrative and thought that all the characters were well developed. Gardner moves her characters at a good pace and there is not alot of "useless chatter".
All of her characters are flawed in some way and this makes them even more interesting.
The story itself is quite intense and frankly, I didn't figure out the ending until the author chose to tell me.
Very good book.

5.0 von 5 Sternen WOW, THIS AUTHOR CAN WRITE! 21. Februar 2001
Von Brad Stonecipher - Veröffentlicht auf
"The Third Victim" is Lisa Garnder's best novel she has written. I loved "The Perfect Husband" and "The Other Daughter" but this one was better. If you are a teacher or work for a school district, then you might find this book disturbing and offending since the big massacre takes place at the school. Rainie Connor, who is the small town'sherrif, is an amazingly developed character who does a fantastic job of discovering who the murderer is. If you like Tami Hoag, Iris Johansen, or Mary Higgins Clark, then you'll love Lisa Gardner.

4.0 von 5 Sternen What a gripping read! 11. Februar 2002
Von Busy Mom - Veröffentlicht auf
I have read three of Lisa's other books and this one didn't disappoint me at all. She kept me guessing all throughout the book on the identity of the "real" murderer in the book. Whoo hoo. I love a good guessing game ... and guess what? She doesn't reveal it on the last page either ... so if you're like me and skip to read the last page ~~ the secret isn't out of the bag!
Danny, the sheriff's son was found by Rainie, the local deputy, holding two smoking guns in his hands. There were two girls ~ best friends since childhood laid dead a few feet away. And the computer teacher was also dead ... and Danny soon became one of those caught up in the school shootings that has been in the news recently. Only things didn't appear like they should ... and Rainie races to catch the real murderer before anyone else gets hurt. While working on this case, she also comes to grips with her ulgy past.
It's a wonderful read ... just don't read it at night alone in a big house. I made that mistake one night while I was home. You get nervous at every creak in the house. And Lisa does it again ... she grips you with her fascinating attention to details and to the story ... keeps you guessing till the end. What a read!!
