Publisher's Summary

He knows everything about you—including the first place you’ll hide.

On a warm summer night in one of Boston’s working-class neighborhoods, an unthinkable crime has been committed: Four members of a family have been brutally murdered. The father—and possible suspect—now lies clinging to life in the ICU. Murder-suicide? Or something worse? Veteran police detective D. D. Warren is certain of only one thing: There’s more to this case than meets the eye.

Danielle Burton is a survivor, a dedicated nurse whose passion is to help children at a locked-down pediatric psych ward. But she remains haunted by a family tragedy that shattered her life nearly 25 years ago. The dark anniversary is approaching, and when D. D. Warren and her partner show up at the facility, Danielle immediately realizes: It has started again.

A devoted mother, Victoria Oliver has a hard time remembering what normalcy is like. But she will do anything to ensure that her troubled son has some semblance of a childhood. She will love him no matter what. Nurture him. Keep him safe. Protect him. Even when the threat comes from within her own house.

In New York Times best-selling author Lisa Gardner’s most compelling work of suspense to date, the lives of these three women unfold and connect in unexpected ways, as sins from the past emerge—and stunning secrets reveal just how tightly blood ties can bind. Sometimes the most devastating crimes are the ones closest to home.

    "Excellent for all the right reasons"

    I've listened to so many audio books over the years and this one in particular stands out. Lisa Gardner's short, clipped sentences work very well in audio format. The story moves at a cracking pace with just the right amount of detail. The other vital component is the excellent narrators, particularly the main voice who has a delivery that is crisp, wry and absolutely perfect. One of the best I've listened to.

    "Too disturbing to keep listening"
    What did you like best about Live to Tell: A Detective D. D. Warren Novel? What did you like least?

    The reading performance was excellent. The writing was good. I like the D.D. Warren series, but this story was just too disturbing to want to continue. I set it aside about 2 hours into it, and will delete it from my collection.

    "Good read"

    A little depressing with lots of juggling if characters but Lisa Gardner pulled them all together as usual. I did notice though that the villains are always killed by their victims and not arrested.

    "Another Good Read"

    The writing and detail of a serious, seasoned writer. Another interesting tale of suspense and intrigue. Not her best, but definitely a contender.
