Publisher's Summary

When a family of three are kidnapped from their exclusive Boston home, private investigator Tess Leoni must find out why they have been taken if she is going to get them back alive. Compulsive, chilling, and utterly unpauseable, this is award-winning best-seller Lisa Gardner writing at her outstanding best.

Justin and Libby Denbe have it all: a beautiful daughter, a gorgeous house, a great marriage, admired by all. Arriving at the crime scene of their home, investigator Tessa Leoni finds no witnesses, no ransom demands or motive - just a perfect little family, gone. But Tessa knows that flawless fronts can hide the darkest secrets. Now, she must race against the clock to uncover the truth. Who would want to kidnap such a family? And how far would they be willing to go?

Waste of my time

Oh my god. How can an author write a good novel like her latest about a brother and sister and then write this rubbish. I seriously skipped about 10 chapters and missed no storyline at all. Who cared about the woman's tablet taking...blah blah blah . The poor narrator having to rabbit in and on with all the tedious details

So weird how the narrators voice grew into it.

It is so weird. When I started on this book I was less than impressed with the narrators. But the start intrigued me so I stuck with it.

Soooooo glad I did. Less than 1/8 into the book the two narrators were the characters and I started to appreciate their talent in making a sizzling plot line totally pop. As you listen you realize how expertly these two narrators were cast.

I know I am raving about the narrators and not reviewing the book but obviously the plot needs to be outstanding to lead to such an amazing listening experience.

A good thriller - Not Lisa's best

It is a good thriller.Keeps you gripped even after you have guessed who the culprit is after 60% - 70% of the book. The style of writing, the characters and the pace keeps one interested. The plot is not something which I can say " I have not come across before"
For Lisa fans it is below expectation. Could have been better, for others give it a go...it will keep you thrilled!

Boring and dragged out but good twist at the end

What did you like best about Touch & Go? What did you like least?

Good beginning but went downhill. Story implausible but at least an element of surprise at the end!

Would you recommend Touch & Go to your friends? Why or why not?

No

Engaging thriller

What made the experience of listening to Touch & Go the most enjoyable?

I like the fact that the story was a very predictable. I also enjoyed the two female narrators and the two perspectives from the two main female characters.

Who was your favorite character and why?

My favourite character was the wife. I felt the story really conveyed her slow descent into her unhappiness and I can understand why she ended up the way that she was. The weather story was presented really enabled you to end her mind and understand her perspective.

Which character – as performed by Regina Reagan and Jennifer Woodward – was your favourite?

I enjoyed both equally and I like the fact that the different voice indicated the different character in the story.

If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

A missing family. A missing fortune.

eh, it's alright.

The narration is good and the story moves along well, but there are a lot of holes and if you're looking to use a credit, you can probably do better.

My First Audio Book & I Love It!

Great app & love listening to books now I've found this fab easy method of 'reading'. Have liked Lisa Gardener for years but listening to one of her books in this way brings it alive much more & creates a more vivid/real personality for the characters, buy & enjoy!

Family bonds

A family is kidnapped and the insurance company has sent an investigator out to see if the ransom should be paid. As the policy is over a million, they need proof of life. Can the family survive long enough for a drop off?

Getting my lisa gardner fix

an incredible addition to the lisa gardner collection.
fans of her books will love this story for the return of old characters and the introduction of new ones.
A piece of advice i would give to anyone interested in picking up this title, it would be get her previous book called; Love you more.
The reason being they make reference to Tessa leoni's backstory a couple of times so some listeners may be a tad behind on her arc.
I seriously commend Regina reagan and Jennifer woodward on a excellent performance throughout the whole story, hope to hear them in future titles.

Labourious

Is there anything you would change about this book?

Too much detail,

What was most disappointing about Lisa Gardner’s story?

The story line was good, I did have to finish it, but gee wizz I found there was too much background detail. If I heard it once I heard it three times,

What aspect of Regina Reagan and Jennifer Woodward ’s performance might you have changed?

Narration was excellent, If I had been reading this book not listening I would never have finished it.

Do you think Touch & Go needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

Not in this vain, I don't

Any additional comments?

Disappointed, as I say too much about each character, not enough storyline, plot.

Enjoyable read, interesting twist

Enjoyed this book more than I expected. Having two narrators made a big difference. Great twist at the end and would recommend.

A gripping thriller

A really good romp of a thriller kept me listening even whilst going around the supermarket which meant I forgot half of the things I went for! An interesting human story mixed in with a sometimes violent thriller with a good twist. Good narration although I didn't notice the difference between the two voices so thought it only had one narrator until I looked!

Best book I've listened to in a long time!

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

This is a really gripping audio book with the narration keeping the suspense and story flowing flipping between the two female characters. All the way through I was trying to work out who the baddie was and I thought the twist was handled really well.

Any additional comments?

I only wish the first book in the series was available to listen too as events are referenced throughout book 2.
