How do you vanish a family?

Ten minutes after walking the elite Back Bay townhouse and investigator Tessa Leoni already doesn’t like what she sees. Signs of an abduction. Clearly the work of professionals. At best, the entire family has been kidnapped. At worst…

How do you disappear a marriage?

The more Tessa learns about the Denbe family, the less she likes their chances. What might have looked like the perfect existence—a powerful CEO, his adoring wife, their angelic child—is not what it appears. Husband, wife, daughter—magazine perfect, but each hiding dark secrets…

How do you erase a life?

Tessa knows more than she’d like to about families riddled with lies. What she doesn’t know is where the Denbes are and if any of them are still breathing. She’ll have to climb over unbending feds and territorial local cops to find out, and if she’s not fast, the Denbes’ chances of survival will quickly become little more than…

Quotes & Awards

  • “Lisa Gardner, the master of the psychological thriller, has delivered another tour de force with Touch & Go, which exposes the raw nerves of a family imploding, and an investigator trying to escape her past…Gardner does an amazing job of creating realistic situations and characters with emotional resonance. The constant surprises will shock even the most jaded thriller reader.”

    Associated Press

  • “Gardner effectively alternates between the physical and emotional disintegration of the family under the pressure of their captivity and the efforts of Invesigator Tessa Leoni and company to dig into the secrets of Denbe Construction, its key employees, and its finances, as well as to locate the Denbes. The suspense builds as the action races to a spectacular conclusion and the unmasking of the plot’s mastermind.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “A thrill ride…Even readers who figure out the ringleader long before Investigators Tessa and Wyatt will get behind on their sleep turning pages to make sure they’re right.”

    Kirkus Reviews

  • “Gardner’s depiction of a woman in the midst of emotional chaos is spot on, as usual, and she proves herself just as capable when it comes to creating intriguing men. Readers will want to see more of Wyatt, just as they grew to appreciate Bobby Dodge in Gardner’s earlier books.”

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Denise MacDonald | 2/14/2014

    " I enjoyed this book. The characters were interesting and I was hooked from the first page. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lolette | 2/7/2014

    " Gardner has always been a favorite. She did not disappoint with this one! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 D.B. Reynolds | 2/5/2014

    " This is a chilling, fast-paced thriller. No one does this better than Lisa Gardner, but like all of Gardner's books, the story is about more than a murder, more than just the thrilling ride. This book is about the disintegration of the perfect family, which we see through flashbacks and present day narrative. The tension is so high that it was almost painful ... so painful that I actually went to the back of the book and read the end, then went back and finished the book in order! I recommend all of Lisa Gardner's books. She's one of the best psychological thriller/mystery writers out there. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Julie | 2/2/2014

    " Once again, Lisa Gardner doesn't disappoint. Like all her others, I could hardly put this book down. When I read my first Lisa Gardner book, it was SO good that I immediately picked up another and after the second great read, she became one of "those" authors (Karin Slaughter is another one that comes to mind and my newest favorite, Gillian Flynn) whom I will read regardless of the topic. I loved the first two books I read of Lisa's so much, I bought all her others and read them in order. I eagerly await each new book from this fabulous writer! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kristen | 1/30/2014

    " Wish that there was 1/2 stars because although I cannot give it 5 stars, it's worthy of 4.5. Several good twists. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Cindy | 1/24/2014

    " Okay, so I have been reading books where authors just wrapped up an ending in two pages, leaving me needing more and unsatisfied. Lisa Gardner did not leave me hanging! I LOVE her and this book was no disappointment. What a great twist at the end, even though halfway through, I saw it coming...only because I have read so many of her books, I know how she thinks! I cannot wait for her next book! I HIGHLY recommend! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Eileen Dilbeck | 1/24/2014

    " Enjoyed it. Glad for the character spin-off (Tessa Leoni from Love You More). Kept me guessing right up until the end. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rohan Watt | 1/24/2014

    " Not literature but hard to put down "

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

    " Even at nearly 400 pages, it made for a quick read with such a gripping plotline. This was my first book by Gardner, but certainly won't be my last. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Trena | 1/19/2014

    " A favorite author. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Janice Hurley | 1/15/2014

    " Good but had it solved before the end. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ann Marie | 1/1/2014

    " Kept you guessing until the very end!!!!! "

    " This a a good book. My husband I both enjoyed, even though he figured out the killer before I did. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cathy | 12/21/2013

    " Tessa Leoni character's story in Love You More is continued in this suspense/thriller. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Robyn | 12/3/2013

    " Suspenseful, though predictable, engaging read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lanadal1 | 11/22/2013

    " I liked this book pretty well -- but not as much as some of her other books. I found parts of both the dialog and parts of the plot illogical at times -- it did not seem to follow the writing style of the rest of the book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Melanie Cook | 11/21/2013

    " This was really good, although I'm not sure that is would rank as one of my fave Lisa Gardner books. I do like Tessa Leoni, and Wyatt seems to be ok too. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Cate Venter | 10/27/2013

    " Meh. She usually provides a reliable, well-written page-turner, but this was both implausible and predictable. Definitely not her best. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Samantha Vandyke | 10/21/2013

    " I really enjoyed this book! Tt took awhile to get into all the characters, but the ending was not expected! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Michele | 10/13/2013

    " A quick enjoyable read as always. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Robin | 10/8/2013

    " I'm not sure why I gave this 4 stars. It was entertaining, but SO predictable! I figured it out from the first few chapters of the book. Engaging writing. This was the first book of the authors that I've read and would probably read more. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dave | 9/20/2013

    " This author is consistently good. Fast passed and keeps you guessing. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Linda | 8/27/2013

    " This book deserves more than 5 stars! Like most of Gardner's books, it is very suspenseful and will keep your interest to the last page. I liked the fact that even though the husband kept having affairs and planned on leaving his wife, she actually won in the end. A great book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Marilyn | 6/27/2013

    " Familiar Gardner characters, keeps you guessing until the very end. One of Gardner's best works that I have read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lori Austin | 5/14/2013

    " Another great read. I've read Lisa since her first single title suspense and I always enjoy the books and look forward tot he next. This one had a lot of twists and turns and some very interesting info about prisons and construction. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kent | 5/12/2013

    " Good mystery novel; kept me guessing to the end, although I had partially figured out 'whodunit', but not for the right reason. I wouldn't want to be a spoiler for those who might care to read it, but I would recommend it for those looking for a good mystery. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Crystal Ledger | 3/23/2013

    " OMG!! another great book by Lisa "
