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.

"Gardner never sensationalizes her story, and the book ends with a resolution that is creatively and emotionally appropriate. An excellent novel." (Booklist)
Like detective stories and Lisa Gardner is one of the most entertaining detective authors I have read.
If you love the series you will enjoy this novel
D.D. Warren she is always such a multi-layered character
I've only listened to two audio books and both were by Lisa Gardner so I would have to rank them both the same and consider them equally brilliant!
I would have to say that Danielle is the most memorable character that has stuck with me many months after listening to this book.
Again, I've only listened to one other audio book so I really don't have a lot of experience for which to rate.
It was particularly interesting to see where Danielle fit in with this whole story and how it kept coming back to her but yet it didn't seem to have any thing to do with her. Her desire to help and try to help sort out the issues was one thing that kept me listening.
Overall, this was a great book and the narrator's and author has done a wonderful job!
I don't know about you, but why are there so so so many 5 star reviews. I LOVE books, but so few are 5 star.
A decent listen, narration was a little too dramatic at times. Takes only minor suspension of reality to enjoy and not pick apart the story. I did find myself saying oh come on, but not overmuch. I have istened to other stories in the series and find them to be pretty much the same. Enjoyable, but not great mysteries or thrillers just good light listens that don't take any effort.
I started with the fifth and sixth in the series not knowing it was a series. I just bought the other four and just finished them all. Six books in a row, and sorry it is over. I will have to download more of her books. They have murder, mystery, twists, family, love, they have it all.
This was beautifully written and narrated until the end. It just took a dive into some supercilious haywire. Downright insulting
Three different narrators, each wonderful. Too bad the story went into some science fiction mumbo jumbo that they had to read along.
I can't get enough of detective DD Warren. I love Lisa Gardner books and Kirstin Potter does a magnificient job with the character.
It really gets you to the edge of your seat. Great read best of best.
All of it
I couldn't stop reading even for food! This book had me guessing & on the edge of my seat the whole way through. Very good!
