Publisher's Summary

Deputy District Attorney Paige Callen is being stalked, and the man stalking her is motivated, methodical, and relentless.The police aren’t merely one step behind Paige’s stalker; they’re stumped. So Paige’s father, retired Judge ‘Iron Gene’ Callen, instead hires retired San Francisco P.D. Inspector turned private investigator Bob Farrell, to the dismay of the local police.The cops know all too well Farrell’s reputation as a reckless wild card. Judge Callen, however, knows Farrell as a man who never lets the rules get in the way of getting the job done. Farrell enlists the aid of former Iowa Deputy Kevin Kearns to help him protect Paige, and to stop a madman before she becomes a statistic. But to find her stalker, Farrell and Kearns must first learn why he’s launched his crusade; a journey none of them may survive.

Great crime writing

This is the second Sean Lynch book I've listened to. again, brilliant writing - gutsy, no holds barred events but also plenty of humour. Great narration too.

Loved every minute.

What made the experience of listening to The Fourth Motive the most enjoyable?

A well thought out, well constructed story with great (and realistic) characters.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Both Kearns & Farrell are wonderful creations, they compliment each other so well and provide most of the heart and humour of each book. As a "buddy cop" pairing you can't do much better!

What does Jeff Harding bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

The narrator, Jeff Harding, gives a real sense of the part of the world the story is set in, Kearns wouldn't be Kearns without the wonderful accent/voice Harding provides. In addition, a lot of the humour (especially in the Farrell/Kearns interactions) comes from Harding's delivery (Kearns exasperation with his partner is a joy to listen to!)

Any additional comments?

I highly recommend "Wounded Prey" which is the first book in the Farrell & Kearns series, a great read which tells the story of how they met.
