The Neighbor: A Detective D. D. Warren Novel

It was a case guaranteed to spark a media feeding frenzy: a young mother, blond and pretty, disappears without a trace from her South Boston home, leaving behind her four-year-old daughter as the only witness and her handsome, secretive husband as the prime suspect. But from the moment Detective Sergeant D. D. Warren arrives at the Joneses - a snug little bungalow, she senses something off about the picture of wholesome normality the couple worked so hard to create.

Publisher's Summary

From a master of suspense comes a chilling new novel that explores the dangers lurking closer than you think. Because even in the perfect family, you never know what is going on behind closed doors.

This is what happened...

It was a case guaranteed to spark a media feeding frenzy: a young mother, blond and pretty, disappears without a trace from her South Boston home, leaving behind her four-year-old daughter as the only witness and her handsome, secretive husband as the prime suspect.

In the last six hours...

But from the moment Detective Sergeant D. D. Warren arrives at the Joneses - a snug little bungalow, she senses something off about the picture of wholesome normality the couple worked so hard to create. On the surface, Jason and Sandra Jones are like any other hardworking young couple raising a four-year-old child. But it is just under the surface that things grew murky.

Of the world as I knew it...

With the clock ticking on the life of a missing woman and the media firestorm building, Jason Jones seems more intent on destroying evidence and isolating his daughter than on searching for his beloved wife. Is the perfect husband trying to hide his guilt, or just trying to hide? And will the only witness to the crime be the killer's next victim?

    "A fiercely clever plot"

    My first novel by Lisa Gardner. Wow, what a clever plot. For most of the story I thought What the heck is going on with these people? The subject matter is potentially quite ugly but I just had to find out what was going on here. It's all revealed eventually and it's...well I won't spoil it for you. The unusual 3-person narration worked very well.

    "Get this one"

    Excellent thriller! Good narration. Kept me guessing until the end. I read Gone, but this is much better.

    "What a listen!"

    Wow, Excellent! My first Lisa Gardner listten was "Hide" and that was good as well. I blew right through this one. I'm hooked now, I'm a bonafide Lisa Gardner fan. "The Neighbor" kep me guessing throughout as to whodunit.

    I have to admit that I'm a total Audible junkie. MUST have book going at all times. I may be the subject of a family intervention someday.
