Me mudé a Nueva York hace un mes para convertirme en el mejor periodista de todos los tiempos. Para encontrar las mayores historias jamás contadas. Y, ahora, aquí estoy: Henry Parker, veinticuatro años, exhausto y aturdido, a punto de que una bala acabe con mi vida. No puedo huir. Huir es lo único que Amanda y yo hemos hecho las últimas setenta y dos horas. Y estoy cansado. Cansado de saber la verdad y de no poder contarla. Hace cinco minutos creía haberlo resuelto todo. Sabía que aquellos dos hombres querían matarme, pero por motivos muy distintos. Si muero esta noche, más gente morirá mañana...… (lisätietoja)

Short - only 6 chapters long and smack bang in the middle of a plot which I had no context of, having not read the other books. That said , nothing of significance happens in the book - why is this even called a "book" in its own right? It should be part 1 of a 5 part book or something. Only consolation - it was free

A Stranger at the Door by Jason Pinter is the highly recommended second book in the Rachel Marin series that started with Hide Away (2020).

Rachel Marin received an email from her son's teacher Matthew Linklater on the night he later died in a horrible, painful death manner. In the email he asked her to call him over some concerns he had over some students and their dealings with people who might not have their best interests in mnd. He knew Rachel as the mother of one of his students, but more importantly as someone who has recently successfully worked with the Police Department in Ashby, Ill. as a consultant. Since Rachel is in a relationship with Detective John Serrano, she quickly learned the identity of Linklater. Soon it becomes clear that he may have been concerned about Bennett Brice and his recruitment of at risk teenage boys into his organization YourLife. Things become even more complicated when Rachel's son, 14 year old Eric is recruited into YourLife and a woman from Rachel's past, Evie Boggs, shows up at her door hinting that she should drop the investigation.

The plot is a series of complicated relationships and revelations that seem to increase the threat to Rachel at every turn. She continues to be the same determined, tough, no nonsense woman who says what she means and whose threats should not be taken idly - especially when the welfare and safety of one of her children is involved. While new readers could read this as a stand-alone, it might be best to read Hide Away first. Detectives John Serrano and Leslie Tally return in this novel, although we know more about both of their backgrounds from the first novel. Pinter reveals some more information about Rachel's past, but still not the whole story. I liked the first novel a bit more, but this is still a very good addition to Rachel's overall story. She is still the vigilante protecting others from harm and this time there are a couple of sociopath brothers to look out for.

The chapters are short and the pace is quick, which help keep you glued to the pages to the end. A Stranger at the Door isn't just a page-turning thriller, it also showcases maternal devotion, family bonds, the difficulty of relationships, loyalty, and seeking the truth and justice. The final denouement provides a twist that is heartbreaking, but understandable. You do have to suspend disbelief over Rachel being a consultant for the police with no formal education or background to support this position. I secretly just ignored that detail and accepted she was a vigilante looking out for others.
