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.
