Warren must partner with former lover Bobby Dodge to break the case.

I was at first put off by the 1st half of this Novel. I put it down thinking I was done with it. Later I figured what the heck, picked it up again and was not disappointed. The second half was so good! I am now a fan of Lisa Gardner!

This book by Gardner got laborious at places. I love Gardner though. She is an amazing writer and the way she write these mystery books is so good. This one kind of seemed a bit off.

I enjoyed this story and characters, I recommend reading it prior to her "stand alone" book Touch & Go so you know the characters background. I read it in a day.

By the time I finished this book, I felt like I had been tricked, and not in a good way. The intention was to reveal more and more as time went by but the changes in point of view weren't labeled so it was extra-jarring and having the POV character only reveal part of the story while pretending to reveal the whole thing at that particular point felt like cheating on the part of the author. For a much better example of changing points of view, read "Into the Darkest Corner" by Elizabeth Haynes.

I have one other Lisa Gardner book around here to read - someone gave me a paperback - and I'll try it to see if this one was representative - in which case, no more - or if it was a fluke.

Love the twists and turns in Lisa Gardner's novels! And thankful you that don't need to really read them in order.

More of the rather tiresome Detective D.D. Warren. The premise was interesting and overall, I enjoyed the book. I found it dragged towards the end. Better editing would have shortened the book and made this a crisper, more compelling story.

I REALLY enjoyed this book! Well-written; terrific, sympathetic characters; intricate plot with lots of twists and turns and a satisfying ending.
