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.

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.

    "Still waiting?"
    Is there anything you would change about this 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.


    What three words best describe Kirsten Potter’s performance?

    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.

    "Love Detective DD Waren"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    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.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Catch Me?

    When you figures out who Charlie's sister is.


    Which character – as performed by Kirsten Potter – was your favorite?

    Of course Detective DD Waren.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    WE all have to die sometime, Be brave.

    Love Lisa Gardner - except in this overly wordy book. Too bad it's not abridged.

    "Yep, I will be reading every Lisa Gardner"

    Her books are just good police detective mystery. This one for me was not as good as some of the others that I have read. It was a little too long. She should have wrapped it up a bit sooner.

    I enjoy the large part that women take in her books.

    "Didn't get past Chapter 4. Too explicit."

    This was my first exposure to Lisa Gardner's work. I purchased it on the basis of its high ratings and the description of the plot. I like good mysteries, including good murder mysteries, but I do not like blood and gore. Nothing in the book's description prepared me for the explicit portrayal of the horrors of child abuse, pedophilia, and violence against children. These are topics I know about and know exist but derive no pleasure from reading about. Had I been forewarned, I would not have purchased it.

    Secondly, the narrator did not much differentiate the voices of some of the characters, so I had trouble following who was speaking at times.

    "Cheesy dialogue spoiled it for me."

    I wonder if Lisa Gardner has any experience working outside of the home. My guess is that she does not. Most of the dialogue between detectives/officers is completely unbelievable. Some of the things D.D. says to her coworkers sound more like what a mom would say to a teenage son or daughter.

    As to the performance, Kristen Potter did a nice job with the Boston accents. She has an expressive voice, making her a good narrator.
