Publisher's Summary

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.

    "My first Lisa Gardner novel - Simply awesome!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I would definitely recommend this novel to a friend. The author doesn't disappoint. It's well worth the audible price.


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

    The plot definitely kept me on the edge of my seat. I couldn't wait till the end to see what was going to happen to Charlie Rosalyn Carter or/and Abigale. I was terrified, in awe, sympathetic, and last suspicious of her, so....Sorry, couldn't help it... I cheated ... I skipped to a few chapters before the ending, because I thought I'd figured out the ending, but I wasn't even close. I immediately went back to where I'd previously left off to continue listening. Even with a bit more insight of the ending, I was still intrigued by each character and how they came to be...so realistic. This novel does not disappoint.


    What about Kirsten Potter’s performance did you like?

    Kirsten Potter made the characters come to life.


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

    There were many. The characters were so real.


    Any additional comments?

    Lisa Gardner is a very detailed and realistic author. Catch Me was my first novel by Gardner. I'm so glad I've discovered her. Now, I have to go back and read the rest of the series of Detective Sergeant Dee Dee Wallace.

    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    Although the story line was excellent, I could hardly get past all the profanity. The


    Would you be willing to try another one of Kirsten Potter’s performances?

    Didn't really care for this narrator. Listen to the sample before you purchase.

    "Suspenseful"

    This was my first Lisa Gardner book and found it suspenseful and Gardner managed to cover an unpleasant topic that kept one interested without getting depressed. Kirsten Potter was superb in narrating the story. I kept trying to figure out who was the killer and Gardner kept me guessing to near the end of the story. This is a good book to read to just kick back and get away from it all.

    Lisa Gardner has done it again, just like all the other stories this one will keep you listening. Great job. Kirsten Potter is a awesome DD. Please keep her for DD. Can't wait for more.

    "Complex story"
    What did you love best about Catch Me?

    I love, love, love the D, D, Warren detective stories from Lisa Gardner. The stories are engaging & complex. The story is told from detective & suspect point of view. There is a story arc for DD's personal life so it does help to read the books in order. But it is not required. I read the second book first & I enjoyed it completely.



    Who was your favorite character and why?

    D.D. Warren was my favorite character. She is a real woman, crabby, hungry, good at her job.


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

    My favorite character was the suspect.


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

    the climax of the book was particularly moving.


    Any additional comments?

    I highly recommend this book.

    Story
    "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.

    "I loved this book!"
    Where does Catch Me rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Bought it to listen to on car trip and I loved every minute! I had never read any of Lisa Gardner's books but went by the reviews on here. It was fun and entertaining, and I found myself not wanting to get out of the car!

    "Carch Me"
    What made the experience of listening to Catch Me the most enjoyable?

    It was an interesting story.


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

    No, it was actually pretty predictable.


    Have you listened to any of Kirsten Potter’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No


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

    Finding out about the things the mother did to her kids was horrifying.


    Any additional comments?

    I guessed who the perpetrator was early on - but I still enjoyed the story.
