The 4th Man by Lisa
Gardner is a highly recommended police procedural short story featuring FBI Profiler Pierce Quincy, Officer
Rainie Conner, and Detective D. D. Warren.
Quincy and Rainie agree to look at a cold case for D. D. Warren and see
if they can build a case against one of the three suspects. Five years

Gardner gives us a well-written short story here with favorite
characters. Included in the eBook short is an excerpt from her new
novel, Right Behind You. The only drawback is that this is a very short
story, but it is satisfying to follow the clues as they reach a
resolution to the cold case.
