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.

    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.

    "Nicely woven"

    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,

    "Great story"

    The story was action packed and suspenseful; I particularly loved the scene in the Judge's hotel where Kat and Mr. "B" meet again. Unfortunately, I did not like the narrator; her voice was uncomfortable to listen to and I was not impressed by the character voices, especially Bobby

    "Totally engrossing story"

    Lisa Gardener's books are wonderfully addictive from beginning to end. The characters stay in my head long after finishing the book. She is one of my favorites.

    "Good story"

    I liked the book, liked the story. Did not like the narrator's voice when doing male voices. Like marlon Brando with a Boston accent.

    "Great performance but drawn out story"

    Like all Lisa Gardner books this story was filled with turns and suspenseful twists. The performance was wonderful so no complains there. It took some time to get use to the readers voice and tone but once I did, I thoroughly enjoyed the reading.
    This may be because it was the unabridged version, but many things were repeated multiple times over and over and over again. Certain points in the book I started to zone out. I would recommend an abridged version of available bc the story is still great
