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...

    Story
    "Welcome to the collection."

    This book is as so vividly written in a completely demented way! I felt like this was one long a$$ episode of criminal minds. It was scary and a made me feel a little sick at times. But at the same time I could not stop listening. I was riveted and it left me ready to buy The Neighbor.

    Story
    "Entirely too Graphic and Disturbing."
    What did you like best about Say Goodbye? What did you like least?

    I enjoy Lisa Gardner very much, this is the only book I would not revisit. Best- that Kimberly Quincy is involved. Least- the content. This book is heavy into child/pedophilia rape.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    It would have to be entirely new subject matter.


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

    I enjoy her voice very much, the story telling is excellent.


    Do you think Say Goodbye needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    No. However the main character is a central character in another Gardner book. "The Neighbor" I believe.


    Any additional comments?

    I enjoy dark and gritty, but not vivid pedophilia, this is one of those you can't unsee things you do not want to see...same with this listen.

    "scary"

    Too real. Very graphic. I was glued to it from beginning to end, but shivered at some of the descriptions.

    "Twists and Turns"

    What a great story! Kept my interest from beginning to end. I enjoyed the little factoids on spiders but wish the author had kept the quotation credits for the end of the book. We really don't need to know where you got your facts from at the beginning of each chapter! Otherwise, a superb story and narration.

    Story
    "Unrelentingly depressing"
    Would you try another book from Lisa Gardner and/or Ann Marie Lee and Lincoln Hoppe ?

    I would try another book narrated by these performers. It will be a long time before I can handle listening to another book by Lisa Gardner. I need to recover from this one.


    Has Say Goodbye turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No. I read crime stories, thrillers, mysteries all the time. I only know of one other book that was as dark and unrelenting as this one and this one was still more difficult.


    Which character – as performed by Ann Marie Lee and Lincoln Hoppe – was your favorite?

    Rita. She was the only character I actually liked.


    Was Say Goodbye worth the listening time?

    The book is still compelling. I finished the book while sitting in my car in the garage. It's just a very difficult subject and there is no let up. All of the characters are flawed and difficult to like, including the heroine, except for Rita.


    Any additional comments?

    I had no problem with the spiders. They don't bother me at all. The scary part was how the author depicts how monsters are made.

    I am the mother of three grown children. I own a horse ranch and enjoy listening to Mystery/Suspense novels and Personal Development books.

    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.
