Publisher's Summary

In four days, someone is going to kill me....

Detective D. D. Warren is hard to surprise. But a lone woman outside D.D.’s latest crime scene shocks her with a remarkable proposition: Charlene Rosalind Carter Grant believes that she will be murdered in four days. And she wants Boston’s top detective to handle her death investigation. It will be up close and personal. No evidence of forced entry, no sign of struggle.

Charlie tells a chilling story: Each year at 8:00 p.m. on January 21, a woman has died. The victims have been childhood best friends from a small town in New Hampshire; the motive remains unknown. Now only one friend, Charlie, remains to count down her final hours. But as D.D. quickly learns, Charlie Grant doesn’t plan on going down without a fight. By her own admission, the girl can outshoot, outfight, and outrun anyone in Boston, which begs the question: Is Charlie the next victim, or the perfect perpetrator? As D.D. tracks a vigilante gunman who is killing pedophiles in Boston, she must also delve into the murders of Charlie’s friends, racing to find answers before the next gruesome January 21 anniversary. Is Charlie truly in danger, or is she hiding a terrifying secret that may turn out to be the biggest threat of all?In four days, someone is going to kill me. But he’s gotta catch me first.

    "I liked it."
    Where does Catch Me rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    It was pretty good and interesting. I thought the information about abuse was good. The story line held to its mystery.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Yes, because some behaviors were not characteristic.

    Story
    "Not even what I expected, great mystery!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Catch Me to be better than the print version?

    I didn't read the print version.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Catch Me?

    When the bells and whistles went off in my head and I figured out who the killer was. Very exciting twist.


    Have you listened to any of Kirsten Potter’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No, I haven't, but if I see her listed as the narrator, I will be more inclined to listen.


    Any additional comments?

    The only thing that I didn't like about this book was that Jessie's story was not fully developed, I don't like to be left wondering.

    Story
    "Emotionally very satisfying but not realistic"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, it worked really well on an emotional and human relationship level. It would have been a perfect story except many of the procedural aspects were simply wrong or so implausible that they made me cringe. Nevertheless, even with the flaws I gave the story a four out of five, and Kirsten Potter's performance made up for any plot holes.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The emotional weight of the story and the superb characterizations by both Lisa Gardner and Kirsten Potter.


    What about Kirsten Potter’s performance did you like?

    The way she captured the inner life of the characters.


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

    It did not make me cry, but it did make my eyes mist a bit a couple of times.

    Story
    "No one to like"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    A likeable character. Detective Warren is suffering from lack of sleep due to having a newborn...ah duh, since people's lives, not to mention their freedom depend on clear thinking police, don't you think she should have taken a leave of absence if she couldn't handle it? In real life, I'd like to see someone like that have their badge pulled. Lisa Gardner committed a cardinal "sin" of writing when she had Det. Warren cross the line by allowing her fellow cop to verbally abuse a woman who had been previously abused (horrifically!) as a child and had come to Det. Warren for help.The abuse handed out was painful; I kept thinking, "Charlie had been physically and mentally abused by her mom and these cops were demanding that she explained why, at 8 years old, she didn't "save" her siblings from their nutso mom????"I mean, how is the reader supposed to love the protagonist after being put thru a chapter like that? And yeah, I know Det. Warren got angrry after, but is the reader supposed to forgive the "heroine" if she complained about her co-worker beating up someone AFTER the beating? I am sorry but abuse is abuse, physical OR mental.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Lisa Gardner again?

    I actually did try to give Lisa Gardner another chance as I wanted a series of books to buy/spend my credits on and settled on a book readers seem to like "Love you more". Unfortunately, same cop, same insensitivity. Why don't writers understand, a female doesn't have to be a b*tch to be tough?


    What does Kirsten Potter bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    It's actually Kirsten Potter's performance in another book that brought me to this one. She has a passion in her voice that makes you believe the story.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Anger and frustration. I was screaming at the audible book and would have thrown it against something if it had been a real book.


    Any additional comments?

    They say that a person's writing shows the secrets of their soul, if so, Lisa Gardner must have some deep dark desire to abuse, rush to judgment, and never apologize for being wrong for that is exactly how she portrays the "good" cop in this book.

    "Another winner for Lisa Gardner"

    I've been a huge Lisa Gardner fans for years, but this was my first "listen" to one of her books. It won't be the last. Kirsten Potter used exactly the tone and inflections that I hear in my head when I read Gardner's books.

    Yes, the books are formulaic, but the individual characters in them are leads I've gotten to know and love, and subjects that I can care about. Their stories find a way to blend current issues (Internet predators this time), sympathetic victims, and a touch of warped criminal mind that keeps me turning pages and wondering whodunnit. I kept going back and forth between 3 different outcomes from the third chapter!

    What did you love best about Catch Me?

    The build-up of suspense in Gardner's novels is amazing. The psychology of the books especially pulls me in.. trying to figure out who sane and who is not. It's always a surprise!

    "Enjoyable plot, characters and narrator"

    This was my first book listened to which was written by Lisa Gardner. I knew who Detective D.D. Warren was from a t.v. movie that I liked. Having not read any Det. Warren books before, I still gave this one a listen because the synopsis sounded interesting. I wasn't disappointed. I felt I had enough background about Det. Warren to get her personality, without having to rely on what was brought out in other books. I even liked the bad guy. The plot was good and kept me interested throughout the book. The narrator did a good job a portraying the female non-nonsense "cop" voice, but could have used a different approach when speaking in Charlie's first person voice. However, it wasn't distracting and I would listen to another book ready by Kirsten Potter. I would definitely read another Lisa Gardner and specifically another Detective D. D. Warren book.

    "Gardner at her best"

    The books I have read by Lisa Gardner are all twisted and have children that are hurt. This one has more twist that a candy cane....Kirsten Potter did a great job giving the charactors their own personalties...Made the morning drive enjoyable
