From the moment Detective Sergeant D. D. Warren arrives at the Joneses’ snug little bungalow, instinct tells her that something is seriously off with the wholesome image the couple has worked so hard to create. 
 
With the clock ticking on the life of a missing woman and a media firestorm building, D.D. must decide whether Jason Jones is hiding his guilt—or just trying to hide.

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kathy Sarlog | 2/15/2014

    " As always with Gardner's books, I could not put it down. She is highly skilled at creating suspense and crafting a plot. The characters are complex and interesting, and the crimes chilling. I would have liked the plot to deal differently with the characterization of Aiden - - I found his portrayal interesting, and yet couldn't really understand why he was in the story or how he moved the plot along, particularly towards the end. Also, D.D. Warren is a little weak as a character and lacks authenticity (the nondescript Brian Miller was more interesting). All in all, though, an engaging and entertaining book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Cindy | 2/10/2014

    " What a great quick read!! Couldn't put it down, had to know what happened. I didn't figure it out until the very end...Love to read mystery/thrillers!! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Marilyn | 2/5/2014

    " #3 in the series... all have something to do with child abuse/neglect. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Catherine | 2/1/2014

    " Wow! This book was great. An absolute page turner. I honestly couldn't put it down. I even tried to read it while making dinner - which is hard to do with a hard cover and you are cooking a few things on the stove. I love that her books reference characters from other books. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rebecca | 1/21/2014

    " This was a really good book. A lot to think about. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kathie | 1/14/2014

    " There were so many twists to the plot that the story kept me intrigued and guessing all the way to the end. Secret lives, changed identities, false accusations, infatuation, lies, cover ups, computer security issues, overzealous media, The Neighbor has it all. Not all questions are answered leaving the reader to speculate about the future of the characters. I will be looking for more books by Lisa Gardner. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Adenike | 1/5/2014

    " The book was really good. The ending was great as well, but I think it wrapped up too nicely due to how suspenseful and dark the story was. Lisa Gardner did a wonderful job. I look forward to picking up another of her books. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Katie | 12/19/2013

    " Wrapped up a little quickly. "

    " another grea one by Lisa Gardner... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Loree | 11/18/2013

    " Some dark lines of character development that were a bit much for me; but overall an okay read. It sort of dwelled in the darkness and then did a super-quick turnaround that was almost not too believable. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kimberly | 8/7/2013

    " Loved this thriller- couldn't wait until the end! She is a very calculating writer, almost makes one paranoid. Love her books. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lorna | 6/9/2013

    " Seems like I can't get enough of Lisa Garnder these days. Great mystery about a wife/mother who goes missing and the past that she carries with her as well as her husband. I'm not really sure about the title of this book.. I think it should have been named something else. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lori | 5/19/2013

    " This book was a bit of a letdown at the end. Otherwise, very fast moving, good read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sarah | 4/18/2013

    " Very quick read. I enjoy this author. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Beth | 4/9/2013

    " Very good read.... lots of twists in this one. Am anxiously waiting for her next novel! I've read the majority of her books (have most of them) and she doesn't disappoint! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lynda Mueller-brdecka | 2/14/2013

    " Could not put it down! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jenny | 1/17/2013

    " A really good mystery/suspense book. The audio version was great, I think 3 different narrators. This is the 3rd in this series and they've all kept me guessing till the end. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Corky | 10/31/2012

    " I am no sure anyone is writing better suspense these days than Lisa Gardner! I couldn't put this one down! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Lorna | 7/30/2012

    " I was pleasantly surprised by this one. Not my usual read but was ok and probably deserves a little more but it was not a real page turner though well enough plotted. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ruth Niles | 6/24/2012

    " Very good story. My first Lisa Gardner book. The story is written from 3 different people's view and you are never sure who is good or who is bad or what "the whole story" really is for any of the characters. The end was definitely a surprise. I look forward to reading more Lisa Gardner books. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Fran Wilkins | 5/24/2012

    " Average whodunit. Just wanted to get to the end. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Peggy McClanahan | 4/14/2012

    " Difficult book for me to rate. I really like the way she writes and will read more by her. (I like the DD Warren series.) but it is graphic with plenty of profanity. Neither of those things bothers me much but I certainly couldn't recommend it to most of my friends for those 2 reasons. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Luann | 3/16/2012

    " Another great Detective DD Warren book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Barbara | 1/22/2012

    " I really didn't know how to rate this book. The story was very strange but it was written in a way that I couldn't put it down. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kelly | 6/14/2011

    " Loved it! This was my first time reading this author, and I will no doubt be reading all her others. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mary | 5/22/2011

    " Keeps you guessing until the end of who did it. A good read for a murder mystery..... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Erin | 5/12/2011

    " Kept me in suspense. And I did rather like the ending. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Marge | 5/8/2011

    " A seemingly normal family has Mom disappear one day and of course the first one suspected of foul play is her husband. The story is suspensful and keeps you guessing to the result until the end. The end was what I didn't like. Seemed to be thrown together to tidy up the loose ends. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Samantha | 5/2/2011

    " Lisa Gardner is quickly becoming on of my favorite authors. I really enjoyed this book. I didn't guess the ending, which is always nice with a crime novel.

    "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Julia | 5/1/2011

    " It was a good book but not like the others I've read so far in the series. It was slower in the beginning than others I've read by her but did not disappoint at the end. It kept me guessing throughout the whole story! I had no idea what was to come and had a great ending! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Gina | 4/29/2011

    " Lisa Gardner is a fantastic author, although this wasn't my favorite so far in this series it was still a very great book, full of suspense and twists. I am excited to read the next in this series "Live to Tell". "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Patty | 4/21/2011

    " A great twist to this one. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Marcia | 4/18/2011

    " This book was pretty good. It's definitely better than the earlier books in the series. Unfortunately, the ending seemed not well thought out. A lot happens at the end that doesn't connect very well to the rest of the book. Still, I liked it. It's worth the $8 for the Kindle edition. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jennifer | 4/17/2011

    " I loved this book, it kept me guessing all the way to the end! "

    " SO SO good! Dumb title though. "
