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.

    "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

    "It was fine..."

    Unlike others, I didn't have a problem with the narration. Sometimes the publishers request the distinct voices and I thought the narrator did a decent job maintaining it.

    I thought the book was fine, but not great. Mostly I was disappointed in the end, which felt like a big southern cliche to me, which I find particularly tedious from non-southern writers. The characters were fairly interesting, but after listening through the whole thing I was left feeling a little let down. I'm always looking for more thriller writers, but I may continue my search elsewhere.

    "Good One!"

    This book has you following Bobby Dodge. A common character in many of Gardner's books but who is normally in the shadows of the story. You will find yourself growing pretty attached to Mr. Bobby Dodge and not wanting to leave him in the end.

    "Should have listened to reviews"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    The book is good, but the narrator is so dry that I find myself loosing interest quit often.


    What three words best describe Anna Fields’s performance?

    Dry. Inflectionless. Sad.


    Could you see Alone being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    Yes

    "Good story and characters"
    If you could sum up Alone in three words, what would they be?

    Intriguing, suspenseful,


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Catherine, her love for Nathan and her strength


    What aspect of Anna Fields’s performance would you have changed?

    She wasn't horrible. Voice change for different characters maybe?


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    The shocking awareness of a survivors life and story! It made me think of recent stories in the news, and pray for all victims and their families.


    Any additional comments?

    I almost did not purchase this book because of the negative comments regarding the narrator. I am so thankful I did decide to buy it! It is a great story, with fascinating and very well developed characters!
