Publisher's Summary

Alone...Massachusetts State Trooper Bobby Dodge watches a tense hostage standoff unfold through the scope of his sniper rifle. Just across the street, in wealthy Back Bay, Boston, an armed man has barricaded himself with his wife and child. The man's finger tightens on the trigger and Dodge has only a split second to react, and forever pay the consequences.

Alone...that's where the nightmare began for cool, beautiful, and dangerously sexy Catherine Rose Gagnon. Twenty-five years ago, she was buried underground during a month-long nightmare of abduction and abuse. Now her husband has just been killed. Her father-in-law, the powerful Judge Gagnon, blames Catherine for his son's death, and for the series of unexplained illnesses that have sent her own young son repeatedly to the hospital.

Alone...a madman survived solitary confinement in a maximum security prison where he'd done hard time for the most sadistic of crimes. Now he walks the streets a free man, invisible, anonymous, and filled with an unquenchable rage for vengeance. What brings them together is a moment of violence, but what connects them is a passion far deeper and much more dangerous. For a killer is loose who's woven such an intricate web of evil that no one is above suspicion, no one is beyond harm, and no one will see death coming until it has them cornered, helpless, and alone.

Great listening

I am the true multi-tasker who loves something besides music or TV in the background that keeps my interest but allows me to concentrate on what I am researching in my genealogy or quilting. I take my cell with me, this was one book I couldn't put done til I finished 'Alone'.

Good story - undeveloped

The story is good, but easy to tell it's an early work as the story was a little choppy and rushed, but kept by interest and it was an enjoyable read overall
