January 2011 Book of the Month.
Incredibly suspenseful but much more than that Lisa Gardner has a superb way of slowly turning the screw as she reveals more of the powerful story as it thickens towards the eventual brilliant denouement. Characterisation in particular Danielle, the key protagonist is absolutely top notch. Existing fans may well be surprised as this thriller is a little different to previous ones but that's to say it's no less action packed and heart-stopping and for those new to Lisa Gardner's thrillers then go for it.
4. Live to Tell
Live to Tell by Lisa Gardner
Danielle often thinks about that night when her childhood her ended. The sound of her father shooting her mother and then hunting down her brother, as she cowered under her duvet, trying to drown it all out. She can remember the sound her brother made as he was killed. And she can remember her father standing in the doorway of her bedroom, saying 'I'm sorry, Danielle...' before he turned the gun on himself. Haunting enough for any child, but Danielle has always wondered, why not her too? Why did her father let her go? Years later, Danielle is working in a hospital that deals with the most violent and damaged of children. But someone there knows something about her past - and is prepared to kill to keep it quiet...
Reviews'She knows how to draw tension ever tighter, and this is an expertly crafted suspense thriller that drips cold sweat.'
'Perhaps her best work yet and one of the scariest novels I've read in a long time... A masterfully wrought piece of original fiction.'
'I couldn't put it down'
