One of her better ones, filler with plot twists and turns up to the very last page. It is a WOW, OH MY GOSH!!! Starting with an abduction of a 12 year old girl 25 years ago.....Read this one and you will be hooked as I am on this author.

"Alone" reads like a television miniseries and if you're after suspense, action and some psychological twists, this is the novel for you.

The character development of Bobby is excellent, and the storyline was pretty good. However, the last 50 pages seemed a bit rushed. It was disappointing that this book was missing Gardner's usual romantic component. However, the story was good, and the characters were complex and compelling, and I hope to see Bobby in another of her books. Overall it's a good read.

This was phenomenal....it keeps you guessing right up to the end, and even then, you're left wondering if what you think happened really did. Very suspenseful, and focuses primarily on the male protagonist.

Gardner reveals a "behind-the-scenes", in-depth look at how a hostage situation can play out from a sniper's perspective. State Trooper Bobby Dodge's life will forever be changed after a split-second decision to pull the trigger. Even after years of training, he is not prepared for the consequences of that decision and the aftermath that unfolds.
Intense drama and suspense....I highly recommend this book.

Riveting and scary to think that such manipulation could actually take place. Had a hard time putting it down.

Incredibly suspenseful and a bit graphic at times, Alone made me squirm, but I tore through the pages because it is a really great story.
