He knows everything about you-including the first place you'll hide.
On a warm summer night in one of Boston's working-class neighborhoods, an unthinkable crime has been committed: Four members of a family have been brutally murdered. The father-and possible suspect-now lies clinging to life in the ICU. Murder-suicide? Or something worse? Veteran police detective D. D. Warren is certain of only one thing: There's more to this case than meets the eye.
Danielle Burton is a survivor, a dedicated nurse whose passion is to help children at a locked-down pediatric psych ward. But she remains haunted by a family tragedy that shattered her life nearly 25 years ago. The dark anniversary is approaching, and when D. D. Warren and her partner show up at the facility, Danielle immediately realizes: It has started again.
A devoted mother, Victoria Oliver has a hard time remembering what normalcy is like. But she will do anything to ensure that her troubled son has some semblance of a childhood. She will love him no matter what. Nurture him. Keep him safe. Protect him. Even when the threat comes from within her own house.
In New York Times best-selling author Lisa Gardner's most compelling work of suspense to date, the lives of these three women unfold and connect in unexpected ways, as sins from the past emerge-and stunning secrets reveal just how tightly blood ties can bind. Sometimes the most devastating crimes are the ones closest to home.
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.
