Heart-racing suspense and irresistable characters from the best-selling author of Touch & Go, Catch Me, Love You More, and many others.
My name is Dr Adeline Glen. Due to a genetic condition I can't feel pain.
All Boston Detective D. D. Warren remembers is walking the crime scene. Next, a creaking floorboard, a voice in her ear...
Now D. D. is seriously injured and unable to return to work.
My sister is Shana Day, a notorious child murderer. She has killed more people in prison than as a free woman.
Then a second victim is found with the same calling cards left at the scene: Champagne and a single red rose. Only D.D. may have seen the killer, but she recalls nothing from the night that may have cost her everything.
Our father was Harry Day, an infamous serial killer dead for over 40 years. The Rose Killer knows things about my father he shouldn't. All I know is my family still has the power to hurt me.
Now D. D. is back on the hunt. Because the Rose Killer isn't just targeting lone women, he is targeting D. D. And D. D. knows there is only one way to take him down: Fear nothing.

The general storyline is good and has promise. Unfortunately there is way too much detail about irrelevant things that slows the story down. I don't care about her son and his grandparents and her relationship with her ever understanding husband...blah blah blah
Just the filler words and storylines that distract from what is going on. I admit some background info is necessary just not this much
I am not sure if it was her performance so much or just what she had to work with.
Oh god no
I don't think I will read this author again in awhile. I already sought a refund on another of her books. I read one I really liked and have been disappointed ever since
"3.6 is my actual rating on this"
Lisa Gardner keeps you on the edge. Well crafted and well performed.
On a scale of 1-10 for mystery and thriller lovers:
Predictability - 7 you will have to cross 60% of the book before your guessing works
Connection to reality - 4 - Well, the characters and plot are invented for your pleasure, you will not find them anywhere in your neighbourhood. The Detective is as she is in her other novels, well crafted charachter you can connect with. Rest is sheer outrageous imagination.
The Flow and the plot - 7 - Will keep you gripped form the first 5 minutes
Fun / humor - There is none in her books ever, so none here too
"surviving emotional pain"
This is a highly entertaining book, well written and with well fleshed out characters. I emphasized with the main characters determination to overcome and tame her painful injury and how she disliked her dependency on her husband to help her do every day tasks. To the point were you lose yourself and you are not "you" anymore.
There was no happy ending as there so rarely is in real life, these characters were hurting, which of us survive an awful childhood with no emotional baggage.
loved it, very easy to listen to kept wanting to know more.
didn't like the narrator much but not so bad that I was able to listen still xx
This was just silly. I cannot think of much else to say about it,and I have enjoyed Lisa Gardner's novels previously.
Such a disappointment. I got half way through and got so fedup with it that I skimmed through to the end, I rarely do that, but I couldn't take anymore of this rubbish.
Definitely ,you can see the story and characters so clearly in your mind it's better than a film
Any lisa gardener book/audiobooks
Along with orlagh Cassidy Regina Reagan brings audiobooks to life and makes them truely believable
