Publisher's Summary

In Lisa Gardner’s first-ever short story following 13 best-selling novels, "The 7th Month" takes listeners between the books and into a day in the life of Boston Detective D. D. Warren.

In her seventh month of pregnancy, D.D. should be taking it easy. Instead, she accepts a small consulting role on the set of a serial-killer film shooting in Boston. D.D. figures she’ll be useful to someone for at least one night, serving as a police expert and making a little extra money in the bargain. It seems like a simple task—until the previous film consultant, a former Boston cop, is found beaten to death. Suddenly D.D.’s date with Hollywood gets serious.

Extremely pregnant, on the trail of a killer, and surrounded by a hundred and four murder suspects in the middle of a graveyard, D.D. must quickly unravel a tangled web of lies. As another cast member is attacked, D.D. realizes that like it or not, her priorities have changed—and her last desperate hope is that she can catch a killer before she and her unborn baby face mortal danger.

Packed with the suspenseful storytelling that has turned Gardner’s novels into New York Times best sellers, "The 7th Month" reveals new insights into a beloved series heroine.

unsure

I like Lisa Gardner books, but... the plots are great, the men who are confident enough to deal with and like DD Warren are very likeable... but I don't like DD Warren much and I do like intelligent strong women. But she is glutinous, horribly rude and self-centered. She comes across as wanting to outsmart killers for her own ego with little feeling for victims or co-workers. I am going to try one of the profiler series. I have read so many books that I look for mysteries where I can't always figure out the endings and Gardner is usually good for that.

Worth listening too!

I wasn’t sure how a “short story “ would fit into the DD Warren series but it did.

I enjoyed this short but creative story. I couldn’t figure out who the second narrator was. Ahhh makes sense now!

I’m a big fan of the series and have been reading the DD Warren series in order. I guess you don’t have too but some books do talk about the previous ones.

Too short for my liking

Wish there had been more to this story. More of the pregnancy while being a cop would have been nice.

Excellent narrator.

Weak storyline. Excellent narrator. Of course, the ending tells us that more is to come.

excellent for a short story

I assumed that because it was short I would feel as though it was lacking, but I was wrong. Great story and full story.

Love DD Warren

Do not enjoy short stories but I thought this was a good addition to the DD Warren background.

Short, crazy and sweet

Interesting storyline for a pregnant Dee Dee Warren. Enjoyed the short story insight. She never gives up.

Not bad... But not the best

The novel was an entertaining listen to be sure, but lacked the thrill I usually get from a murder mystery. I am a bit disappointed in this novel, as I usually adore D. D. Warren novels, but this one just fell short. Considering the price however (or rather the lack thereof) I am considering this a worthy purchase to last an hour or two.

For those who really want a thrill, try listening to "Catch Me". Still a D. D. Warren novel, but taken to a whole new level. Sinister, creepy, mysterious, and most of all thrilling, it is currently one of my absolute favorites.
