Publisher's Summary

As a sniper with the elite Massachusetts State Police SWAT Team, Bobby Dodge saved a woman and her young son by shooting her armed husband. But vicious rumors begin to circulate the next morning when Bobby loses his gun and his privileges. It turns out the dead man was the son of a prominent Boston judge and had accused his wife of poisoning their son. Facing awkward stares and a crippling wrongful death lawsuit, Bobby begins his own investigation into the fateful shooting, and a fight to reclaim the life he holds dear. As the trail takes him into a twisted minefield of sordid wealth and family secrets, he is learning that nothing, and no one, is what they seem.

    "Alone"

    Great story every time I thought I had it figured out I was wrong. Don't like giving away the story of the book yet abduction never effects just the family. Love Lisa Gardner and listen to her books many times.

    "Great mystery"

    Some parts were pretty unbelievable. some of narrator's different voices were strange especially the little boy's voice.

    "No Suspensse"

    This book, Alone, just didn't have the twists and surprises I've come to expect from Lisa Gardner. DD Warren was presented as a cheap blonde with the mentality of a sheep. She's always been a strong intelligent, flawed to perfection cop in other books.

    Narrator did not do male voices well.

    Story
    "A Good Thriller"
    Where does Alone rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I am not a great fan of this author, but Anna Fields recorded it and so I purchased it. Author likes to leave her fans with a thrill or CHILL and this had both. I must have 4 or 5 books of author but only because Anna recorded them. If you love thrillers, then this is a good one. If you are a fan, then this is great


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Oh yeah! This story has that element that will resonate with you for a while. This is listed as book #1 for D.D., but her role is very little. This is Bobby's story.


    What about Anna Fields’s performance did you like?

    I purchased this book as the late great Anna Fields read it. You must use the new 1.25x to fully get the fast action author wanted.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Not moved me, but scared me yes. Loved the ending

    Story
    "Conflicting In A Good Way"
    Where does Alone rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    What is great about this book is the fact that it is a unique. Honestly, I didn't even realize how much I enjoyed this book until it was over. Never experienced that before. Brutal content keeps you riveted in a bystander kind of way.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Even though this is a detective D.D. Warren book, I was hoping the series would be more about the shooter. I will continue to read the series, because DD was one of my favorite characters.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    For the story line, I feel the scene where Katheryn broke down in front of her Dad. A lot of family history came into play. It visualized the real "hard decisions" a parent has to make regarding grown children and the tragedy that can cause. One of the deepest parts.
    However the romantic in my enjoyed Bobby's therapy sessions and hoped him and his Doc would get together. She was on his side from day one.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Almost. A day and a half.


    Any additional comments?

    Great intro into the series, although if the series is about DD I am surprised at the small part she played.

    This is my second read by Gardner. She certainly knows how to weave many complicated elements together to create suspense and build anticipation to the climax,
