I live to ride my bike.
This review was 5 years in the making. I purchased and read/listened to this in 2011. In 2016 I considered buying a Gardner book. In reading many of the reviews I wondered why I never read anything by Gardner before. I was very surprised to find that in 2011, I purchased 4 of Gardner's book.
So before I used a credit for a new Gardner, I decided to revisit the old ones. I was extremely delighted to find that I enjoyed the books. DD Warren is a very competent detective. She is very down to earth being 40 years old and passionate about her work and unhappy about her private life. Her private is only "unhappy" because it has been a dry sex year or few for her. (I am listening to the next book now and the dry spell is over for her) Her working relationship with her colleges is funny yet they respect her.
To my review. Take it I really enjoyed this book to write a review 5 years later. I really enjoyed that I could not predict the killer. Her rap up was nice and logical. There is not much action per say. She only pulls out her gun once. But it is a captivating way Warren solves her crimes.
Gardner's DD Warren is a good detective novel without a lot of the technical stuff or grisly bodies. Warren is an outstanding detective assured in her skills and her sexuality.
loved it. more disturbing than criminal minds (my favorite) and with a good, solid plot. twists and turns I didn't see coming. Lisa Gardner is one of a kind, not afraid to give too much
The reading performance was excellent. The writing was good. I like the D.D. Warren series, but this story was just too disturbing to want to continue. I set it aside about 2 hours into it, and will delete it from my collection.
A little depressing with lots of juggling if characters but Lisa Gardner pulled them all together as usual. I did notice though that the villains are always killed by their victims and not arrested.
I found this to be one of the best books in the D.D. Warren series. It was funny, tragic, and full if suspense to the last page.
The writing and detail of a serious, seasoned writer. Another interesting tale of suspense and intrigue. Not her best, but definitely a contender.
