BOOK REVIEW

RIGHT BEHIND YOU by Lisa Gardner
FICTION & LITERATURE

BOOK REVIEW

BOOK REVIEW

THE KILLING HOUR by Lisa Gardner

GONE by Lisa Gardner
FICTION & LITERATURE
Released: Jan. 31, 2006

"As ever, Gardner is hot to plot, but few are the twists fresh enough to counter been-there-read-that."

BOOK REVIEW

LIVE TO TELL by Lisa Gardner
MYSTERY THRILLER
Released: July 13, 2010

"An adventurous tale with a bit too much 'woo-woo' paranormal but just the right pace and lots of action. Gardner (The Neighbor, 2009, etc.) has another hit on her hands."

BOOK REVIEW

CATCH ME by Lisa Gardner
MYSTERY THRILLER
Released: Feb. 7, 2012

"Irresistible high-wire melodrama, though it's easy to see why D.D. observes, 'I think we just fell into a Lifetime movie.'"
Like her fifth case (Love You More, 2011, etc.), Boston PD Det. Sgt. D.D. Warren's sixth subordinates her to another woman just as strong as she is, and a lot more interesting. Read full book review >

BOOK REVIEW

CRASH & BURN by Lisa Gardner
MYSTERY THRILLER
Released: Feb. 3, 2015

"Gardner tacks on so many twists that even the most astute reader will be confused, and even the intriguing resolution, when it finally comes, doesn't answer all the plot's unnecessary questions."

BOOK REVIEW

BOOK REVIEW

FEAR NOTHING by Lisa Gardner
MYSTERY THRILLER
Released: Jan. 7, 2014

"If you think Gardner pulled out all the stops in D.D.'s previous cases (Catch Me, 2012, etc.), you ain't seen nothing yet. Better fasten your seat belt for this roller-coaster ride through family hell."

BOOK REVIEW

LOVE YOU MORE by Lisa Gardner
MYSTERY THRILLER
Released: March 8, 2011

"The all but unflappable D.D. shudders: 'How could a woman…How could a mother…' Takes a bit long to get where it's obviously going; still, you won't often find two such sympathetic protagonists paired, refreshingly, as antagonists."
In her fifth case (Live to Tell, 2010, etc.), Sergeant Detective D.D. Warren takes on one tough mother. Read full book review >
