Alone . . . Massachusetts State Trooper Bobby Dodge watches a tense hostage standoff unfold through the scope of his sniper rifle. Just across the street, in wealthy Back Bay, Boston, an armed man has barricaded himself with his wife and child. The man’s finger tightens on the trigger and Dodge has only a split second to react . . . and forever pay the consequences.Alone . . . that’s where the nightmare began for cool, beautiful, and dangerously sexy Catherine Rose Gagnon. Twenty-five years ago, she was buried underground during a month-long nightmare of abduction and abuse. Now her husband has just been killed. Her father-in-law, the powerful Judge Gagnon, blames Catherine for his son’s death . . . and for the series of unexplained illnesses that have sent her own young son repeatedly to the hospital. Alone . . . a madman survived solitary confinement in a maximum security prison where he’d done hard time for the most sadistic of crimes. Now he walks the streets a free man, invisible, anonymous . . . and filled with an unquenchable rage for vengeance. What brings them together is a moment of violence—but what connects them is a passion far deeper and much more dangerous. For a killer is loose who’s woven such an intricate web of evil that no one is above suspicion, no one is beyond harm, and no one will see death coming until it has them cornered, helpless, and alone.From the Hardcover edition.

Series: Detective D.D. Warren (#1)
too grisly and violent for me but I kept reading it because I wanted to know how it ended. I don't watch SVU for the same reason I almost didn't finish this book. one interesting thing I found out was that the author holds a contest where she names characters in the book, after fans and then kills t...
I might end up reading the second book if only to actually meet the D.D. Warren, since she was a faded background character in the opening novel to her own series. None of the characters we did meet for an extended period of time were particularly likable (except, perhaps, for the four year old - an...
Ahhhh another great series by Lisa Gardner. I love how it made mention of Jim Beckect from her other series. Alot of twists making you wonder who is lying and who is the real bad guy.
I found it to be OK. I wrote in Women of Mystery that it didn't draw my attention, so I basically read my daily quota and moved into other books that I preferred. I will give it a chance though with the next book in the series. 2 stars from me.
Fascinating! Not the outcome you would expect. I really liked Officer Dodge, but wondered why he was getting so involved.
