I've thoroughly enjoyed all Ms. Gardner's books and like the fact that she maintains a character connection between each book. I also like the fact that the "good guy" isn't always good just as the "bad guy" isn't always bad. Justice might prevail but not always from a legal standpoint and this same justice is invariably just as short-sighted as the human exercising it.
I will try to be patient for her next book.

My first Lisa Gardner novel, i'm impressed. Definitely not see through, meaning -kept me intrigued throughout the entire story even when I figured out the who, but not the why. Elisabeth Rodgers gave great narration, very dynamic. The writing isn't enough to fall in love or hate with any of the characters, but the story has enough depth to make it a good read/listen.
Love Audible :)
Do you Really Know your Family?
Good Book from Begining to End!
I liked thecharacter of the kidnapper, but did not like the family, and did not understand them.
No, because it was kind of a scattered story. Not enough character development
The narrator was OK
No, I usually dont read books over again. but if I ever did, this would be the one!
The Best book I've read or listened to in my recent memory. Edge of your seat suspense, so to speak, suspense and real life family and human problems. The different twists and turns Ms. Gardner takes are so complex but make sense when you get the whole picture. they are ripples from events I wouldn't have thought of. This is not the same old, same old.
Excellent narrator. One of my very favorites also.
Enough of a mystery to make my compute pass quickly. There were times when I didn't want to turn it off.

I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys twists and turns in a plot. This book was a treat to read.
The narrator, Elisabeth Rodgers, was the perfect choice. Her varied voices added to the enjoyment of the book.
I am an avid recorded book listener. I work at at elementary school, have 2 high schoolers and have very little time to sit and read. This is a great book fix for the perpetual motion in our lives we live these days.
Have been a fan of Lisa Gardner for some time. This book offers a great story and the narration is spot on. The building of complete, flawed, sad,and successful characters and families can be tricky, but not for Gardner. Good verses evil but only partially predictable ending. Twists until the very end.
It was an unusual plot and story line. I loved it.
Yes it did. It was a great story and not very predictable!!
This was a very well written and performed thriller. It kept me guessing right up to the end. Can't wait to read her other books.
I told him he would, but he figured it was basic "chick lit" and skipped over it for a while. Once he started listening, he would talk to me about the story and give me his latest opinion of 'who dun it'. The book introduces quite a few suspects and provides motives for the possible crime committed. So it keeps you guessing. My husband's only complaint was that he wanted more "action" and less of the heroine's inner thoughts. But I guess that's what makes it appeal more to many female readers. The narrator did a great job and you are kept guessing until nearly the end.
