Excellent suspense novel! I enjoyed every moment of it, and this book really kept my attention right up the surprise ending. Lisa Gardner is a master suspense writer. I really am impressed with the way she is able to use multiple perspectives/narrators and switch the action between the family that has been kidnapped and the detectives/law enforcement trying to rescue the family. highly recommended.
Excellent character development and a story that flows easily from the first chapter onward. Enjoyed this book a lot.
Absolutely wonderful thriller. I could not stop reading it once I got closer to the end. It had great characters, a great plot and subplot that kept you guessing the entire time. One of the best thrillers I have read in a long time.
WOW! Gardner has done it again--this is exceptionally well written, it has suspense, mystery and edge of the seat moments. So well written you won't put it down until the end!
TOUCH & GO was this month's pick in my online book club, The Reading Cove. And I'm sorry to say I was pretty underwhelmed.
It started off interestingly enough, with a woman and her husband apparently trying to reconnect after an infidelity in their marriage, but then the pace got in a hurry to go nowhere...fast.
I don't think there was enough plot to justify the 400+ pages, so it dragged more than not and I lost interest in solving the mystery about what was going on with this family, and the police investigation to find them. And in the end, the twist felt pretty anticlimactic.
I suggest reading the first 100 pages, then skimming to the last 50. You won't miss anything. This was a pretty average story. I give it a C.
I have never read a Lisa Gardner book that I didn't like. This one was also amazing, as I expected from such a talented writer. She certainly knows how to keep the reader in suspense - the creativity she possesses in developing the characters involved in her novels is what earns her such high praise from me. I would have to say that the only time Lisa Gardner disappoints is when her book comes to an end. Loved this book!
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 existencea powerful CEO, his adoring wife, their angelic childis not what it appears. Husband, wife, daughtermagazine 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
I loved Gardner's FBI profiler series, so I was excited to start another of her books. This one didn't make the cut. Boring. As many reviewers stated, I skimmed the middle section of the book and read the final few pages. Glad I saved myself the boredom of reading the book completely. It was a silly story. I wasn't connected to any of the characters and the story dragged. Can't give too much away, but I was disappointed with this story and disturbed with some of the additional plot lines. Skip it.
Excellent plot and grabbed your attention to the very end!
Excellent. Hard to put down.
WOW! WHAT A RIDE!! What an amazing book! I have read all of Lisa Gardner's books and this is the best one yet. The story kept you on the edge of your seat and so many twists and turns at the end. I could not put it down. I can not wait for her next novel! 5 stars++
