Summary

FBI Special Agent Nick Lawrence is in hot pursuit of a brilliant serial killer.
He’s also the next target on the killer’s list.
The serial killer is known as The Ferryman. His series of unpredictable and horrific murders have terrified the residents of Austin, Texas, and stymied local law enforcement.
Special Agent Cheryl Simmons of the FBI’s Behavioral Analysis Unit is known throughout the Bureau as a legend among their elite profilers. For the better part of the last four years, she’s devoted herself to tracking The Ferryman, and this may be her best chance to catch him.
For the killer has chosen fellow FBI Agent Nick Lawrence as his next victim.
Why?
No one knows.
When will he attack?
No one knows that either.
But the Ferryman is coming.
Soon.
And using Nick as bait is the only way to catch him....
Shea’s third book in the Nick Lawrence series delivers the knockout punch fans have come to expect. Burning Truth is a fast-paced thrill ride filled with twists that will keep you guessing until the very end.

Great Read!

The story is excellent. The performance, for the most part, is great. However, I really struggle when words are mispronounced by professional narrators. They should be held to a higher standard when it comes to the spoken word. I've noticed several words mispronounced in all of the books narrated by Conner Goff. I really applaud his performance, but get distracted and disappointed by the mispronounciations.

Good but not great

I liked the book but it wasn't as good as the first two. It was unrealistic in terms of, two of the bad things happened only because Nick did nothing to stop them.

Spoiler:
The fact that Nick didn't have protective detail on his mom or his girlfriend after she returned home seemed so ridiculous. I know these books are fiction but there's no way an agent wouldn't have people watching his family if someone was trying to kill them. He basically just let it happen. That really bothered me because he's not an idiot so I don't know why he's behaving like one in this book.

Getting Predictable

Really enjoyed the first couple of books. Was excited to see there were other books available in this series. However, except for a couple twists that this book offered, it left me feeling sad and disappointed. I will try the next book to see if it changes but if it continues along the same story lines and continuously used terms throughout the book, my readings will stop there.

GREAT BOOK

This book is short, but it is an excellent story. Brian Shea is one of my favorite authors and Nick Lawrence's series is my favorite. Highly recommended. Unexpected ending,

A short story

It was very good but it should not be a full credit. Not even 5 hours. Rip off from audible.

A Real Cop-Out

Disappointing story after the first two excellent books in the series. Ridiculous ending and loss of great characters in the series so that romance can reign in the most trite of ways.
