In four days, someone is going to kill me....
Detective D. D. Warren is hard to surprise. But a lone woman outside D.D.’s latest crime scene shocks her with a remarkable proposition: Charlene Rosalind Carter Grant believes that she will be murdered in four days. And she wants Boston’s top detective to handle her death investigation. It will be up close and personal. No evidence of forced entry, no sign of struggle.
Charlie tells a chilling story: Each year at 8:00 p.m. on January 21, a woman has died. The victims have been childhood best friends from a small town in New Hampshire; the motive remains unknown. Now only one friend, Charlie, remains to count down her final hours. But as D.D. quickly learns, Charlie Grant doesn’t plan on going down without a fight. By her own admission, the girl can outshoot, outfight, and outrun anyone in Boston, which begs the question: Is Charlie the next victim, or the perfect perpetrator? As D.D. tracks a vigilante gunman who is killing pedophiles in Boston, she must also delve into the murders of Charlie’s friends, racing to find answers before the next gruesome January 21 anniversary. Is Charlie truly in danger, or is she hiding a terrifying secret that may turn out to be the biggest threat of all?In four days, someone is going to kill me. But he’s gotta catch me first.

I love listening to Kirsten Potter she does such a fabulous job with Lisa's work. I did not read the printed version so I couldn't answer that. The only thing I can say is Lisa's writing is soooooo amazing I am sure it would be just as good.
As usual with all of Lisa's books, it most certainly did!! I could not stop listening. It is so sad when the book comes to an end, you just want it to go on forever. In my opinion no one compares to Lisa Gardner. She has a way of putting you right there and keeping you there. I loved everything about this book!
Yes, she is fantastic. The fact that she is reading for Lisa makes it even better!
Hard to say, there were several. It amazes me that her books just keep getting better and better. How does she do it?
Please do not make us wait too long for another book!!!
I am 4.5 hours into it and I just cannot get hooked. Its been 4.5 hours of set up and no real action or excitement. I am a middle school teacher and read a lot of young adult novels so maybe I have been spoiled with too many quick action, hanging by the edge of your seat books. I'm sure it gets better but I have also been saying that for the last 1.5 hours. I just can't get into it.
I don't think it is really her but more so the text that make transitions hard to follow. There are 3 different stories but initially it took a bit to figure out what story you were following.
Reading has always been my guilty pleasure. I would take stacks of books from the library. Now I listen to Audible.
Fabulous story, I couldn't put it down. As I listened questions kept popping into my head. In a paper book, I would go back for reference when I had a question but listening made my mind work harder to keep up with all of the nuances.
Just when I thought I had it figured out new information would pop up.
yes....arrival of new characters
excellent voice to listen to for an extended time
I have read all Lisa Gardner books. This book was great and it also gave me bits of information in past charecters from her other books that I wondered what happened to them. The whole time I read this book I thought the killer was someone else and at times I was a little creeped out for the craziness of someones mind but couldn't stop listening to it. I love that Detective DD Waren has become a mom in this book and finally has a life beside Boston PD.
When you figures out who Charlie's sister is.
Of course Detective DD Waren.
WE all have to die sometime, Be brave.
Why ever would I do that?
Love Lisa Gardner - except in this overly wordy book. Too bad it's not abridged.
I live to ride my bike.
I love this character D.D. Warren so much. Lisa has given us an intelligent woman that is accepted among her peers. Warren is a lover, mother and committed to her job. As a reader you try to find the killer. You success determines your enjoyment of the book. Well this one had me going. I was bemoaning the fact that I "knew" the killer and did not want that person to be the killer. That is when Lisa, the author, pulled the rug from under my feet and I fell on my butt.
If you are a Gardner fan you must read this. If you are not, you must read this. I down loaded other Gardner novels but do not download, The Third Victim.
I fell in love with Charlie and her guts.
The story kept me interested in what was really going on and who was the culprit
I think she does most of the DD Warren books that I've listened to. So of course that is DD Warren in my mind. Very easy to listen to.
Great book. What's next!?!
Was very interesting. Enjoyed every bit.
Couldn't stop listening.
Like all Kirsten Potter's books. Will read more.
