Blown away. What else can I tell you? Brigid Quinn is a heroine to cheer for, and Masterman writes like an angel who has seen far too many ungodly things. (Linwood Barclay)
Wow. An absolute pleasure. Chilling, smart, funny, and what a voice she has. (Gillian Flynn, author of the number one New York Times bestseller GONE GIRL)
RAGE AGAINST THE DYING is the kind of thriller that will keep you up long past your bedtime, and Brigid Quinn is the kind of FBI agent you have never met before, but will want to meet again! (Peter Robinson)
The novel is Masterman's debut, though it emphatically doesn't show. She writes with an assurance which many more experienced authors lack, and has created a sizzling page-turner which left me hungry for more. Brigid Quinn is a role model for women of a certain age everywhere! (MYSTERY WOMEN)

Unusual to have an elderly female protagonist but Brigid Quinn is the kind of protagonist who seems real and believable and she carries the story. Interposed between the action, her relationship with her college professor husband adds an extra layer to the plot.
A satisfying crime thriller
Brigid Quinn is a retired FBI agent who lost a colleague of hers to a serial killer.
When someone, the serial killer is apprehended, She comes out of retirement but starts to doubt if the really have caught the killer.
I loved this book. Becky Masterman has got a star character in Brigid Quinn and I want to see more of her.

This is a fast paced story which has lots of twists and turns and a very intriguing, albeit pretty nutty, main character. I read it in two sittings and was wondering what would happen in between. Lots of atmosphere, good use of its Arizonan setting and a pleasing whodunnit.
I've given it three stars because I'm torn between the parts I liked and the parts I didn't. Firstly, there are some continuity errors and while these aren't critical, they did pull me out of the action from time to time. Secondly and more importantly, the main character's actions just stop being believable at some stage in the second half of the book. Obsessive agent or not, I can't accept that she would take the risks that she does or draw the conclusions that she does. Nor do I believe that it would be so hard to find someone to listen to her. Nevertheless, a fast paced and an original story.
Instantly likeable even with her character flaws. Excellent serial killer thriller. Kept me guessing pretty much all the way through.
Enjoyed it so much have bought the 2nd book in the series
