For 300-some pages, Gardner will keep you spellbound—not just by her plot but by the beautifully realized character of Massachusetts police sniper Bobby Dodge. A twisted, effective psychological thriller.
Lisa Gardner's darkest, most powerful novel to date - destined to be a bestseller.
Massachusetts State Trooper Bobby Dodge watches a tense hostage standoff unfold through the scope of his sniper rifle. Just across the street, an armed man has barricaded himself with his wife and child. The man's finger tightens on the trigger and Dodge has only a split second to react…and forever pay the consequences.
Twenty-five years ago, Catherine Gagnon was buried underground during a month-long nightmare of abduction and abuse. Now, her husband has just been killed. Her father-in-law, the powerful Judge Gagnon, blames Catherine for his death.
Mr Bosu survived solitary confinement in a maximum security prison where he'd done hard time for the most sadistic of crimes. Now he walks the streets a free man, invisible, anonymous… and filled with an unquenchable thirst for vengeance.
What brings Bobby and Catherine together is a moment of violence-but what connects them is a passion far deeper and much more dangerous. For a killer is loose who's woven such an intricate web of evil no one is above suspicion, no one is beyond harm, and no one will see death coming until it has them cornered, helpless, and alone...
Explosive and provocative, ALONE is the new nerve-shattering thriller from international bestseller, Lisa Gardner.
