Author:  Lisa Gardner
Genre:  Thriller, D.D. Warren Series #4
Published:  2010
Personal Rating:  4/5 (very good)
Format/Narrator:  Audiobook/Kirsten Potter
Yearly Count:  74

A brutally murdered family (possible murder/suicide) has D.D. Warren feeling like there has to be more to the story than she is seeing.  D.D.'s search leads her to a children's psychiatric ward.

This has turned out to be a solid series for me.  I have enjoyed every one of them and feel confident that I'll like the next, too.  That makes Gardner a successful author in my book.  However, I have to admit that I don't think highly of D.D. as a detective.  Her character doesn't hold my attention or really even require my attention.  Thankfully, Gardner writes interesting plots, so I guess the detective doesn't need to be the focal point.  No matter, the series has me wanting more. 


  1. I love this series too! I have the same thoughts on D.D. Not impressed with her character as a person, but you are at the point where she starts to "improve" somewhat from here.
