An amazing thriller that kept me reading through all the twists turns and ups and downs. I didn't anticipate the final result until it unfolded right before my eyes with 20 pages left to go.

There are times when I fall deeply in love with a character, whether they are good or bad, but throughout the entire book I couldn't put my finger on my feelings towards Tessa Leoni. At times, I thought she was conniving and just plain horrible, but at the turn of a page I cared for her deeply and wanted so much for her to be absolutely and purely innocent.

I loved the relationship between the two detectives - D.D. Warren and Bobby Dodge. What a team and you knew from the beginning that these two cared deeply for each other and were the best of coworkers and friends.

A great book that I would absolutely pass onto both the males and females. A suspenseful story that keeps you reading until the last page.

This book is FANTASTIC!!! And I don't say that about many books. I have read almost all of Lisa Gardner's books and feel this book has just elevated her writing to a new pinnacle of success as a writer! Kudos to Lisa Gardner for a smashing new book!!! If this book doesn't have you non-stop turning the pages without stopping until you reach the end I would be shocked! Her character portrayal of Tessa Leoni was amazing and you could really feel for this minute you love her....the next you are unsure if she is telling the truth and has played on your emotions till you feel like a fool for trusting is a wild ride you won't want to miss out on taking you all the way to the end! I have 3 words for thriller lovers.....READ THIS BOOK !!!!!!!

This is the first Lisa Gardner book I've ever read, but it is apparently part of a series featuring the detective D.D. Warner. She is called out to work on her day off to spearhead the investigation into why a state trooper shot her husband and why the trooper's six-year-old daughter is missing. The plot takes off at break-neck speed, twisting and turning and keeping you turning the pages continuously until you finish the story. To tell you more would completely spoil the story.

Gardner writes this story in third person limited point of view with D.D. Warner, but shifts into first person point of view with the trooper, Tessa Leoni. This is done to great effect, showing the external struggles that D.D. Warner goes through while trying to solve the crime and, when it shifts to Tessa in first person point of view you develop a real feel for what Tessa is dealing with and where she comes from; plus it helps you develop some sympathy for Tessa.

D.D. Warner, as a continuous character in the series should be the main character, but using first person point of view with Tessa actually causes her to become the focus of the story, making Warner almost a secondary character. I'm not sure if that was Gardner's intention, but it works well, especially for someone like me who has never read a Gardner book before.

You know what my response to this book was? I immediately went and got my hands on another book by Lisa Gardner. This writer is now a keeper.

Another amazing Lisa Gardner book that I had a hard time putting down. So many twists and turns. This was the first D.D. Warren book I've read, so I'll have to go back and read the others now. I highly recommend this book if you're looking for something with a lot of twists and turns.

Once I started reading this, I couldn't put it down. Fast-paced and suspenseful, had me on the edge of my seat. Gets you right into the head of a state trooper trying to save her child, dodging twists and turns that would make any parent's head explode.
