Detective D. D. Warren has four days to stop a killer in this “shocking…‘must read’”* from #1 New York Times bestselling author Lisa Gardner—one of Library Journal's Best Thrillers of the Year.
Charlene Grant believes she is going to die. For the past few years, her childhood friends have been murdered one by one. Same day. Same time. Now she’s the last of her friends alive, and she’s counting down the final four days of her life until January 21st.
Charlene doesn’t plan on going down without a fight. She has taken up boxing, shooting, and running. She also wants Boston’s top homicide detective, D. D. Warren, to handle the investigation.
But as D. D. delves deeper into the case, she starts to question the woman’s story. Instinct tells her that Charlene may not be in any danger at all. If that’s true, the woman must have a secret—one so terrifying that it alone could be the greatest threat of all.

"D.D. Warren is trying to adjust to life as a detective AND mom. So of course her
first two cases involve someone killing pedophiles (who cares, right?) and a
woman who swears she will be dead in 4 days and wants D.D. to investigate her
murder when the time comes. There's no way the two cases could be related ... or
are they. D.D.'s sleep deprived brain doesn't slow her down as an investigator,
but it does cause her to be creeped out by things that never bothered her before
she had a baby.
The conclusion of this book will touch mothers everywhere. The phrase "Everyone
has to die sometime -- be brave" has really stuck with me. "
