T. R. Ragan’s “Dark Mind” (Thomas Mercer 2014), #3 in the Lizzy Gardner series, is a look inside the mind of a demented, sick killer who revels in bringing pain to the happiest of people. Called the Lovebird Killer because his victims are couples who are madly in love, profiler Lizzy Gardner sets out to stop him. This is almost a procedural on how she unravels his twisted mind until she can stop him, but not without putting herself and her loved ones in his scope.
This is a wonderful, frightening tale, with a fast-moving plot and strong characters. The ending is satisfying save a depressing last few pages. The only problem I had was that the timeline jumps around a bit too much for me.
