Touch & Go: A Novel | [Lisa Gardner]

Touch & Go: A Novel

Justin and Libby Denbe have the kind of life you’d find in the pages of a glossy magazine: A beautiful 14-year-old daughter. A gorgeous brownstone on a tree-lined street in Boston’s Back Bay neighborhood. A great marriage, admired by all. A perfect life. When investigator Tessa Leone arrives at the crime scene in the foyer of the Denbes’ home, she finds scuff marks on the floor and a million tiny pieces of bright green Taser confetti. The family appears to have been abducted.

Publisher's Summary

This is my family: Vanished without a trace....

Justin and Libby Denbe have the kind of life you’d find in the pages of a glossy magazine: A beautiful 14-year-old daughter. A gorgeous brownstone on a tree-lined street in Boston’s Back Bay neighborhood. A great marriage, admired by all. A perfect life.

This is what I know: Pain has a flavor....

When investigator Tessa Leone arrives at the crime scene in the foyer of the Denbes’ home, she finds scuff marks on the floor and a million tiny pieces of bright green Taser confetti. The family appears to have been abducted, with only a pile of their cell phones and electronic devices remaining. No witnesses, no ransom demands, no motive. Just a perfect little family, gone.

This is what I fear: The worst is yet to come....

Tessa knows better than anyone that flawless fronts can hide the darkest secrets. Now she must race against the clock to uncover the Denbes’ innermost dealings, a complex tangle of friendships and betrayal, big business and small sacrifices. Who would want to kidnap such a perfect little family? And how far would such a person be willing to go?

This is the truth: Love, safety, family . . . it’s all touch and go.

    "One of her best!"

    Awesome story! Definitely one of her best! Other than Hide, I think this is my favorite. Kept me guessing. Pretty twisted. Great listen, I definitely would come home from the gym and listen in the garage, and while doing dishes, etc. Great listen. I really like the narrator too!

    "Another WOW!"

    I'm such a fan of Lisa Gardner & this book was exceptional! If you read Love You More, you'll recognize Tessa Leone & know her background. I really liked the strength of Libby in this book, and I'm happy with the continuation of Tessa & Sophie. I kind of suspected who was responsible for the kidnapping, but the twist at the end totally surprised me - I never saw that coming! Awesome book! I didn't want to stop listening - action packed & lots of great twists!

    "Best book so far"
    What made the experience of listening to Touch & Go the most enjoyable?

    I felt like I was with the family the whole time and felt heart broken at the end


    What other book might you compare Touch & Go to and why?

    I have read so many books including all Lisa Gardner books. It reminded me of her book The Neighbor where she reels you in to feel so many emotions about the family .


    What about Elisabeth Rodgers’s performance did you like?

    She always does so well with the characters and doesn't seem silly doing the men voices.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    The Perfect Family Gone Wrong.


    Any additional comments?

    Some parts of the book touched home and I felt like Libby was there talking to me about her life.

    "Thoroughly enjoyed this book"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I already have recommended this book to a friend! I have enjoyed all of Lisa Gardner's books. But this one was especially good.


    Any additional comments?

    The woman who read this book was excellent. I would love to have had two readers, one for each of the two distinct parts. but it was a great listening experience.

    "Enjoyed this Book"
    What did you love best about Touch & Go?

    A nice paced book, not real fast but just fast enough to say one more chapter and then one more and then one more..............


    Which character – as performed by Elisabeth Rodgers – was your favorite?

    All the main characters were nicely done. I was not disappointed


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

    It didn't make me laugh or cry, it made me want to root for the family involved.


    Any additional comments?

    I enjoyed listening to this book from begining to end.

    "A little Slow & Fat"

    The story was slow and bulky and at times had spurts of energy. Not typical of the authors writings.
