Publisher's Summary

Lisa Gardner, the New York Times best-selling author of Hide and Gone, draws us into the venomous mind games of her most terrifying killer yet.

Come into my parlor...
For Kimberly Quincy, FBI Special Agent, it all starts with a pregnant hooker. The story Delilah Rose tells Kimberly about her johns is too horrifying to be true; but prostitutes are disappearing, one by one, with no explanation, and no one but Kimberly seems to care.

Said the spider to the fly...
As a member of the Evidence Response Team, dead hookers aren't exactly Kimberly's specialty. The young agent is five months pregnant - she has other things to worry about than an alleged lunatic who uses spiders to do his dirty work. But Kimberly's own mother and sister were victims of a serial killer. And now, without any bodies and with precious few clues, it's all too clear that a serial killer has found the key to the perfect murder...or Kimberly is chasing a crime that never happened.

Kimberly's caught in a web more lethal than any spider's, and the more she fights for answers, the more tightly she's trapped. What she doesn't know is that she's close - too close - to a psychopath who makes women's nightmares come alive, and if he has his twisted way, it won't be long before it's time for Kimberly, too...

    "Too dark"

    I usually enjoy Lisa Gardner 's writing but the descriptions of children being raped was too graphic for me.

    Story
    "It Stays in Your Head Long After You Finish It"
    What did you love best about Say Goodbye?

    I liked the victim's narration throughout.


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

    The plot was so full of twists and turns there was always an unexpected surprise.


    What does Ann Marie Lee and Lincoln Hoppe bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    The tone of the victim's narration caused me to become more deeply involved in his story feeling the depths of his plight.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I feel this is one of the best books I have read in this genre. Anytime you cannot quit thinking about a book and its characters long after you have read it says everything about its success.

    "Great Story and Awesome Narrators"
    What about Ann Marie Lee and Lincoln Hoppe ’s performance did you like?

    These narrators were amazing! Ann Marie Lee was so good at distinguishing the different characters voices and Lincoln Hoppe was perfect at conveying the flat tone of the abused characters he portrayed. All around just great.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes!


    Any additional comments?

    I love Lisa Gardner - the way that she has all her characters in one universe is so well done. It turns out that the abused boy in this book is the main adult character in her later book The Neighbor which I had listened to previously. LOVE that!

    Story
    "If you hate spiders then pass on this!"
    Would you try another book from Lisa Gardner and/or Ann Marie Lee and Lincoln Hoppe ?

    I didn't like this book at all. There were so many parts and it to be honest -- somewhat disgusting. I am a person who enjoys dark but the constant detail about spiders that went on and on and a subject about the "burger man" and what he did was quite vial. I'm guessing it is a book you can find for $3.99 at a half priced book store because a person didn't care to get rid of it. Answer to Lisa Gardner is absolutely NOT. Ann Marie Lee absolutely yes and No way to Lincoln Hoppe.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Big Little Lies


    Would you listen to another book narrated by Ann Marie Lee and Lincoln Hoppe ?

    I hated the voice of Lincoln Hoppe. I liked Anne Marie Lee a lot.


    What character would you cut from Say Goodbye?

    Mack was really insignificant to the story.

    Ending is amazing. Gardener never fails!
    This book has a twist, a disturbing but interesting one. Definitely worth listening to!

    Story
    "Lisa's Mind:"

    Lisa Gardner's mind is this amazing place I love to visit, but I would maybe not want to live there. It's a little creepy? But in a good and entertaining way :) How does she come up with these scenarios? I am sure it's from diligent research and careful thought about what she is going to write.

    Of all the story, there was only one small point where I felt the basis and presentation of one little relationship thing just was not plausible for me. It could have worked if it had been set up just a bit more. I found myself saying "No... Come on Lisa, you're better than that!" Out loud I might add.

    Narrators were both very good. Great casting here for sure. I felt Ann Marie Lee had wonderful characterizations and Lincoln Hoppe nailed his part.

    The story was very well written, great development, balanced treatment of the important aspects of setting things up, revealing things at the proper time, and feeling satisfied with the outcomes in terms of being "real", believable and delivered with great skill. I had that one little point I felt could have been better, but it was a very very small foible in my opinion.

    Highly recommended. After a couple of Lisa Gardner books now, I'm a fan.

    "EXCELLENT"
    If you could sum up Say Goodbye in three words, what would they be?

    enough little twists to keep it VERY interesting


    Have you listened to any of Ann Marie Lee and Lincoln Hoppe ’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Ann Marie Lee - she is always a easy narrator to listen to and makes even bad book enjoyable


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    yes


    Any additional comments?

    This is one of Lisa Jackson's better books - she does an excellent job in keeping the story going with some nice twist - this could actually be a true story

    "Creepy"

    This book is beyond creepy, crawling into just plain disturbing. I was on a road trip so I was caught in the web with no escape. I did not like the way the characters presented and in the end it was predictable. Pass on this and pick one of her other books, as she is usually a great read
