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)
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!
I listened to Love You More before this one also by the same author and wanted to see what else this author could do. It was a very good listen. I couldn't take the headphones off. I liked this one too from beginning to end.
This author and the D.D. Warren Detective series are addictive. Action packed and suspenseful. Just when I think I know who is the bad guy, she throws a curve ball. I have a hard time turning these off...can't wait for the next.
Reading has always been my guilty pleasure. I would take stacks of books from the library. Now I listen to Audible.
This is my second Lisa Gardner book on Audible. I used to read her in print and I find that I am enjoying this format more. The character development is great and the stories are wrenching. I have trouble putting them down. Love them!!!
I'm a huge fan of murder mystery stories and this book I could not stop listening too. I even went everday and listened to it on my lunch breaks until I was done with the book. Great story line, great characters, great narrators!!! Kept me on the edge of my seat the entire time waiting to see what twist was next!
Techno-Thrillers, Jack Reacher, Mitch Rapp fan!
Excellent story line but also very depressing/disturbing (although probably not as bleak as things really are). The story lines about each child as a seperate voice made them stand-out. but it was just too dark for me. Made me think of several other (very successful) authors whose style is just not for me. Sorry Lisa, I'll have to add you to that list of great writers but writers I will tend to pass on.
I couldn't stop thinking about the book. How easy or difficult is to grow a child. Yeah, I'm glad I don't have a monster. Anyway - thrilling book, nicely read, 5 stars. I guess, I started to like Lisa Gardner a lot.
Always a great listen, but this book was intense and I could not stop listening. The narration was one of the best I have heard. While the plot is dark and sad centering around children it was intereasting, captivating and a true page turner!
Book written so well...leaves you hanging at the end of each chapter and filled with twists...then it all comes together in the very end...just when I thought I had figured it out....there was a new twist that took me in another direction. Awesome book...I would highly recommend it.
