Overview

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.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"With perfectly crafted characters, riveting and authentic police procedure, and a satisfying breakneck pace, Sean Lynch’s The Fourth Motive is nothing less than a tour de force of the detective thriller genre."
-Mark Greaney #1 New York Times bestselling coauthor of Command Authority

Praise for Sean Lynch:

"With Wounded Prey, Sean Lynch delivers a hell for leather, wild ride of a debut with the "been there done that" authenticity that lifts it above other thrillers. I just added Farrell and Kearns to my short-list of favourite characters, and Vernon Slocum to my worst nightmares! Think First Blood meets No Country For Old Men."
-Matt Hilton, author of the Joe Hunter series

"Disturbing and unsettling topic; but deeply-characterized, good understanding of psychology, well-written."
-Mallory Heart Reviews

"While redemption is the biggest theme of the novel, the author also deftly explores the inner workings of a very, very sick mind, and what made Slocum what he is. Be prepared to go to the darkside in this harrowing, fast-paced thriller."
-Kristin, CriminalElement

    Great book!

    I enjoyed this book as much as the 1st in the series. I love Bob Farrell! He knows how to get the job done. I can't wait to read the next one.

    I felt this book wasn¿t as good as the first one, it didn¿t hold

    I felt this book wasn’t as good as the first one, it didn’t hold my interest as well. I really don’t like Paige, she’s opinionated, ungrateful, and egotistical. It’s a sad state of affairs when you like the assailant more than the victim. Bob and Kevin were spectacular. I did enjoy the story, and shouldn’t compare it to the first one.

    Great Read!

    If you like John Sanford, you will like Sean Lynch. I read The Wounded Prey and then bought this book immediately. I like the way he writes, the two main characters, and the pace of the book. It is gripping!

    The content seems old; cigarette smoking, speech, etc. The description of the villian's injury after being punched in the groin was laughable; testicles swollen as large as golf balls....not much injury?? The story itself was fair.

    Great Book--Loved every minute of it. Couldn't put it down. Had some very interesting twists and turns--the kind of mystery I love. This is the first book I have read from this author, but am going to read more immediately! Thanks for a good read!
