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.… (mais)

Pretty good detective novel. Interesting enough story. Not a fan of the typical 12-page hiding/running/shooting type conclusions. ( )

Rating between a 3 and 4 - After reading and thoroughly enjoying this author's recent book "Find Her" I decided to go back to the first in the series. I liked this one too, but not quite as much. The plot was interesting but I didn't connect to the characters in any real way, they lacked some depth I thought. Also, the bad guy killer seemed rather weak and buffoonish- Other than physical size and strength, he wasn't really believable as a villain in my opinion. At least not an interesting one. I guess when you look at the reality of some killers, many of them are kind of ridiculous except that they are also violent to make up for their inadequacies as humans. Eh, either way, I didn't find him as the scary bad guy to be compelling reading. What I did enjoy was the duplicity in the characters, where each had their own dark motives. I wish that would have been played out and explored a little further. I'm definitely going to continue reading this author. I've already grabbed several of her audiobooks. ( )

Thoroughly mediocre. ( )

Catherine Gagnon and her son are being held at gun point by her husband, Jimmy. The police have been called and the STOP (special tactics and operations) team are assembled to bring an end to the hostage situation. Bobby Dodge, a member of the STOP team, has Jimmy in his cross-hairs and as Jimmy's finger starts to pull the trigger of the gun he is pointing at his wife, Bobby does what he has been trained to do. Jimmy happens to be the son of a powerful judge who claims that Catherine set up the whole scenario just to get Jimmy killed. Bobby finds himself caught in the middle as Catherine and Judge Gagnon fight it out. Also caught in the middle, is Catherine's young son, who is in and out of the hospital with constant illnesses that Judge Gagnon and his wife claim are Munchhausen Syndrome. The reader begins to question whether Catherine used the police to kill her husband and is she now trying to kill her son?

I usually enjoy most of Lisa Gardner's books but this one wasn't my favorite. I found none of the characters likeable and read this one to meet the early DD Warren. She only makes a brief introductory appearance. It wasn't my favorite Gardner book but it was still a quick mystery with some good thriller elements.
