Live to Tell (Thorndike Core)

Cover art: Live to Tell (Thorndike Core)

Published by Thorndike Press on 2010-07-20
Hardcover: $35.99


Lisa Gardner has long been an ace practitioner of the psychological crime novel, and her skills don't desert her in her latest outing, Live To Tell.There are a host of thrillers vying for our attention at present, and the quality on offer ranges from the indifferent through the workmanlike to the genuinely inventive. Lisa Gardner has demonstrated in such books as The Other Daughter and The Perfect Husband that she’s more than capable of delivering the genuine article: thrillers which function on both the plotting and character levels, always couched in smart, well-honed prose. If Live To Tell isn’t quite vintage Gardner, it’s still an impressive piece of work – and better than most of her rivals could produce.

A savage crime has rocked a working class neighbourhood of Boston; four members of a family have been brutally murdered. The father is lying in an intensive care unit, his survival in doubt. He is the principal suspect. Female police detective DD Warren, however, is not one to take things at face value. At the same time, Danielle Burton is about to have her life thrown into turmoil; a nurse whose life is at the service of her profession, she has tentatively recovered from a devastating family tragedy of decades before – and the investigation by Warren and her partner is about the throw Danielle’s life into chaos once again. There is one more angle to the triangle: the devotion of a mother, Victoria Oliver, to her disturbed son is about to be tested to the limit.

As before, Lisa Gardener in Live To Tell has the measure of the suspense techniques she employs, tightening the screws on the lives of these three women as a grim crime is laid bare. --Barry Forshaw

ACTIVITY FROM AROUND THE WEB

D. D. Warren is rapidly becoming one of my favorite characters in detective fiction. A veteran Boston police investigator with voracious appetites for food and sex, she gets plenty of one --- without gaining an ounce --- and not nearly enough of the other. As a result, there is a bit of an hysterically funny, smart-alecky edge to her that alone could probably carry each and every book in which Lisa Gardner chooses to feature her. However, as Gardner’s latest work demonstrates, there is much more happening in these pages than bright, snappy dialogue. The storylines that weave their way through Warren’s world are smart, riveting and addictive.

If there is a weakness in LIVE TO TELL, it is that at some points Warren almost seems to be making guest appearances in her own novel. There are a number of interesting characters, including a new love interest for her, one who will no doubt be back in the next installment of the series. Still, Warren is such a unique character that sharing the narrative spotlight does not seem to entirely become her. Nonetheless, the plot is so strong and unforgettable that you may not even notice Warren’s relative absence.
