About the Book:

One question, a split-second decision, and Brian Darby lies dead on the kitchen floor. His wife, state police trooper Tessa Leoni, claims to have shot him in self-defense, and bears the bruises to back up her tale. For veteran detective D. D. Warren it should be an open-and-shut case. But where is their six-year-old daughter?


As the homicide investigation ratchets into a frantic statewide search for a missing child, D. D. Warren must partner with former lover Bobby Dodge to break through the blue wall of police brotherhood, seeking to understand the inner workings of a trooper’s mind while also unearthing family secrets. Would a trained police officer truly shoot her own husband? And would a mother harm her own child?

. . . TO SAVE HER?

For Tessa Leoni, the worst has not yet happened. She is walking a tightrope, with nowhere to turn, no one to trust, as the clock ticks down to a terrifying deadline. She has one goal in sight, and she will use every ounce of her training, every trick at her disposal, to do what must be done. No sacrifice is too great, no action unthinkable. A mother knows who she loves. And all others will be made to pay.

Love you more . . .

My Review:
Okay. Whoa. Let me catch my breath for a minute. This is a psychological thriller novel that is absolutely captivating. It’s got everything that a book like this should have: thrills, unsuspecting twists, murder, breathtaking knuckle whitening suspense, questions and fantastic who-dun-its. This novel is written by a new-to-me author but she’s certainly not new to the craft of writing. From page one, Gardner twisted me into the story and by the final page I was dizzy from all the turns, twists and bumps along the way.

Tessa’s story is phenomenal. A state trooper by day, and an abused wife turn murderer by night??? Well, that’s just one of hundreds of questions that you’ll need to read this book to find the answers to. Tessa’s 6 year old daughter vanished…..or did she? Will there be enough time to save her, or is she already perished? Some more questions that are answered about the masterfully written pages. And what does Detective Warren find out as she investigates and digs into the family and breaks them down?

Have I got you curious yet? I sure hope so! It’s also my hope that you will take the time to read this emotionally complex, more than 5 star worthy, WOWtastic suspense novel. Lisa Gardner knows what a suspense lover craves in a novel and mixes it up to throw us an amazing novel that is so life like you won’t know you’ve just read a novel-you’ll feel like it ACTUALLY happened to YOU. Oh and one more thing…..what would YOU be willing to do for someone you loved so deeply????
