The Quiet Man is book 4 in the Jefferson Winters series, Jefferson Winters is an ex-FBI profiler with a serial killer as a father. The other books in this series in order are Broken Doll, Watch Me and Prey. There is also prequel short stories Presumed Gulity, Hush Little Baby and Open your eyes. The books are all stand alone stories so you dont have to read them in order if you dont want to, but if you anything like me you will end up reading them in order.
Winters has been ask to consult on case in Vancouver where on the 5th August for the past three years a wife has died at the hands of a bomb at their homes. Winters doesn’t have much time to find the bomber before someone life is forever changed, and they lose the trail for another year.
I have described Jefferson Winters as the Sheldon Copper of Crime fiction, he is annoying, to smart for his own good but you can’t help but love him. I like the fact in this book that we got to see more of his sense of humor with his interaction with detective Jefferies.
I really enjoy these series of book as Jefferson methods make the books very entertaining to read. As he is only a consultant he has a lot more freedom to do things, as he is not following the ‘book’. Jefferson is always one set ahead everyone, their is always an extra layer to his plans that he doesnt like to share until its already in motion. This alwasy keeps you guessing, which for me is the most important thing in crime fiction.
If want a different take on profiler book than this is a series that you should give a go.
5 out of 5.
