The Neighbor: A Detective D. D. Warren Novel | [Lisa Gardner]

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?

    "The minority report."

    I'm pleased to see that the several other reviewers of "The Neighbor" enjoyed the book so much. I found it to be a crashing bore. All of the characters just felt so damned sorry about themselves that their whining simply drove all interest and involvement straight away. I finally started skipping along just to see how the "plot" worked out. I should not have bothered.

    I love all genres of books. However, when I listen to audio books as I clean, garden, drive they are better with a lot of heat!

    "Enjoyable but slow"

    Suspenseful- kept my interest until the middle where it became repetitious in plot and character development. I learned some interesting facts about investigation work, computers and child abuse. The resolution came suddenly, in the last five minutes, and all too neatly tied up in a bow. Still, kept me walking at a great pace when listening on my hikes

    "Surprisingly good listen"

    I've never listened or read any books previously by Lisa Gardner, and I found this one very good. Nice pace, interesting, not horribly predictable, yet maybe a bit frustrating at places. Decent listen and interested in listening to more of her work.

    "Best audiobook I've read to date!"

    I'm sure this book is a great pleasure to read, but it was a fantastic book to listen to! Absolutely at the top of my list of audio "reads" so far. The narrator is perfect, and the storyline lends itself well to audio format. You won't listen to anything but this book until you finish it! The story itself is an excellent thriller that will keep you guessing until the very end. This was the first time I read Lisa Gardner, but it certainly won't be my last.
