Rage Against the Dying by Becky Masterman

rage against the dyingOne of my co-workers recommended this thriller and I saw an Advance Readers’ Edition laying around, so I decided to read it.  The story centers around Brigid Quinn, a woman who retired from the FBI under less than stellar circumstances.  The book begins with her being attacked, a very well-written tense scene that pulls you right into her story.  When someone confesses to the biggest unsolved case of her serial killer hunting career, Brigid is pulled back into helping to find out if the confession is true. Brigid’s involvement in the case leads her to lie to her current husband and cause stress in their relationship.  I enjoyed the fact that this thriller’s main character was an older, flawed woman, a bit of a change from the normal protagonist in this type of book.  Overall, a worthwhile read.
