“Right Behind You” is the title of Lisa Gardner’s latest novel. Eight years ago Sharlah Nash’s older brother beat their drunken father to death to save their lives.

Then there is a double murder at a local gas station, followed by reports of an armed suspect shooting his way through the wilds of Oregon. As Quincy and Rainie race to assist, they hear that the shooter may very well be Sharlah’s older brother, Telly Ray Nash, and it appears that his killing spree has only just begun. “Right Behind You” is also available as an eBook through the Virtual Library and the 3M Cloud Library.
