    I listened to this on audiobook The female narrator did a pretty good job even when she had to imitate the voices of a cop trained as a sniper who kills a husband brandishing his gun at his wife and small son and when she had to imitate the voice of a pedophile released from prison after twenty five yearsTwenty five years ago when Catherine was just twelve years old she was snatched into a van and survived twenty eight horrifying days in a pit in the woods where she was either being sexually abused or left all alone in the dark Now she has married an abusive man who cheats on her and has a son with a mysterious illness that the doctors can’t identify no matter how many tests they run When officer Bobby Dodge kills her husband the parents of Catherine’s dead husband swoop in and try to claim custody of her four year old son While she’s struggling to keep custody her former abuser is out on the street killing her nanny her son’s doctor is she next?

    Tremendous This is the series to read if you want to breeze through a book and be thoroughly engrossed Did not want to put this down for one moment and am very glad I discovered Lisa Gardner much like my discovery of Harlan Coben I started reading this series at number 3 and thought this was why I didn't feel a close affinity to Detective DD Warren but I think on reading this book I have realised she must not be the focus of the series The character of Police sniper Bobby is very likable I really felt I knew where he was coming from and his plight had me from the first page I look forward to reading about Bobby again straight away and will be doing so momentarily as I just picked up my copy of number two I was on the hunt for the next book even before finishing this one and it's not a common feel for this reader to go out and get the next installment immediately He's smart straight forward and oh so flawed He's someone I want to get to the bottom of his complexities are very appealing There are many layers here where the author expertly peels away for us in an unobtrusive and expert way This particular story line had many many bends in the road and I was on a constant ride of emotion and enjoyed a few back flips along the way I'm sure most of you out there are aware of this author but I'm just so happy I didn't miss her completely

    Massachusetts State Trooper Bobby Dodge is called to a tense domestic disturbance standoff He’s the trained sniper on the team and has the husband James Gagnon in his sights Gagnon has a gun to his wife Catherine’s head and their young son is in the room When Gagnon makes a threatening move Bobby takes the shot that ends the standoff and Gagnon’s life What was an on the job action becomes a nightmare for him when Gagnon’s powerful father a judge files criminal charges against Bobby This turned out to be an incredibly thoughtful story as it goes beyond solving a crime While Catherine Gagnon comes under scrutiny as a potential instigator in her husband’s death Bobby’s struggle to come to terms with his ending a man’s life based on a judgment call was fascinating I’ve often wondered how sanctioned snipers dealt with the job and this story provides deep insights There are many other angles to the situation including Catherine’s tragic history as the man responsible for it is suddenly paroled and she becomes a target The clues are all there but the resolutions still surprised me in the end Also D D Warren appears about midway through the story so be advised that her focus in the series really begins beyond this book Bobby is the primary narrator and I really liked and admired him flaws and all I listened to the story and while Anna Fields is a skilled narrator it would have been a stronger performance with a male narrator She’s a wonderful storyteller but her voice for Bobby wasn’t the best However I really enjoyed this opener and am excited about continuing the series

    Lisa Gardner has crafted a fine psychological thriller in Alone While I found myself immediately immersed in the drama I got about 160 pages in and I still wasn’t sure where she was taking me It was that complexBobby Dodge is a Massachusetts State Trooper who is a sniper called in as part of a crisis team to handle a hostage situation in a wealthy Boston neighborhood From a window across the street he sets up his rifle He sees a woman a young boy and a man with a gun As the man’s finger tightens on the trigger and his face contorts into an evil smile Bobby has to make an instantaneous decision He does Lives change foreverCatherine Gagnon the widow of the man Bobby shot is incredibly beautiful She is also manipulative and dangerous As a young girl she was kidnapped and sexually molested She was rescued and her abuser was put in prison But she carries some deep scars The story has multiple layers as we learn that Jimmy Gagnon the dead man was the son of a powerful judge who wants to gain custody of Catherine’s young son Nathan Judge Gagnon is having murder charges brought against Bobby unless he lies about what happened the night of the shooting And then people begin to dieWho is behind the killings and why? Bobby knows he should stay away from Catherine but he also sees her as a woman who needs help Can he really help? And can he heal the wounds of his own painful past? Did he do the right thing or will doubts plague him the rest of his life?This novel is billed as a Detective DD Warren book but we don’t meet her until midway through the book and we actually see very little of her in this first of the series so I didn’t feel that I got to know her Bobby and Catherine were both well developed characters Messed up but well written Actually there are lots of messed up people in this book Although I was able to predict some of what happened I did not know what motivated the characters at least not all of them and I liked that There were a few minor things editing errors which stuck out Also the puppy is said to lick the child with a rough tongue I know cats have rough tongues; dogs do not That would have been a wet sloppy kiss Some of the events seemed rather unbelievable especially the final scene in the hotel That seemed to me like a made for TV scene But for the most part I did not want to turn off the lights and be alone while reading Alone so I think the author did her job in writing a great thrillerI’m giving it 4 ½ stars

    I did not enjoy the characters the plot or the narrator I wanted it to be overGunshots are heard Neighbors call the police who surround the house Inside Jimmy is pointing a gun at his wife Catherine Bobby is a sniper and member of the police SWAT team He sees Jimmy’s face change and he believes Jimmy will shoot so Bobby shoots and kills Jimmy Now Jimmy’s father James is suing Bobby If James wins Bobby goes to jail If James loses he will repeatedly appeal because he is wealthy He can afford to The problem is that the city and union will not pay Bobby’s legal fees because James is filing suit through a clerk magistrate which is not the normal process Bobby did what he was trained to do If he didn’t shoot Jimmy then he believed Jimmy would have killed Catherine Now Bobby has to pay 5000 to a defense attorney I was furious Policemen should not be forced to pay their own legal feels for following orders and doing their job I don’t know if this exists in real life but if it does then something is very wrong This part of the plot made me so angry that I had a hard time enjoying the rest This legal issue stress hangs over Bobby until the last few pages of the bookWas the rest of the story good? Parts of it maybe Catherine was kidnaped and raped by Richard when she was twelve When her only child Nathan was born Catherine had some mental problems and did not appear to be a good mother The child has been raised by nannies Nathan is freuently sick and the doctors don’t know why Some fear it is Münchausen syndrome by proxy which means the mother is purposely doing things to make the child sick to get attention for herself For most of the book the reader wonders if Catherine is good or bad for her son James is also suing Catherine for custody of NathanRichard has been in jail for twenty five years James uses his influence to get Richard released on parole Someone is now paying Richard to murder people connected to Catherine or the caseI did not enjoy the characters I felt anxiety and depression rather than sympathy I didn’t feel fun anticipation rooting for someone We don’t know if Catherine is good or bad but she’s not likeable James and Richard are too one dimensional powerful and evil Bobby spends too much time suffering and second guessing himself wondering if he did the right thing He was having problems with the concept of killing someone He talks to a psychiatrist several times about this as well as troubles from his early life Some of this was ok but it seemed a bit much He also did some illogical and stupid things which made him less sympathetic Regarding the plot I had uestions unanswered at the end But maybe part of those were necessary I understand Catherine has some kind of role in the seuel “Hide” which I have not readNARRATORI did not like the narrator Anna Fields The voice she used for Bobby and some of the men was so deep that it sounded like a mentally slow person who is groggy and slurring his words Some of her general third party narration was too sharp and hurried almost like she was reading a report and not thinking about what she was reading When talking about a sniper she said “he breathed in he breathed out” That phrase should have been read slowly and calmly yet the narrator’s voice was sharp staccato and fastDATAUnabridged audiobook reading time 10 hrs and 12 mins Swearing language strong including religious swear words Sexual content some references to sexual activity but no details shown References include the rape of Catherine when she was 12 Setting current day Boston Massachusetts Copyright 2005 Genre mystery suspense thriller Ending Good guys winOTHER BOOKSThis is the first book in the DD Warren series DD is a female cop She has a small part in this book In the seuels I believe she and Bobby work together as a team

    I’ve read a handful of Lisa Gardner’s books in the past typically at random when browsing for something to read immediately and without care for whether they were part of a series or not And although they were all installments in a series and I read them entirely out of order each were easy to pick up and read as a standaloneIt was only after completing Station Eleven on audio looking up narrator Kirsten Potter’s biography and noticing that she has also narrated several of Lisa Gardner’s books that I thought to start them from the beginning To be clear Alone was not narrated by Kirsten Potter but Anna Fields; whose narration was crisp and precise After about ten minutes of warming to her reading style I was able to let her words surround me and paint the story in my headEverything about this first book in Gardner’s DD Warren series took me a while to warm up to Maybe because the author was finding her feet with a new series Maybe because the main character of the series didn’t appear for uite some time Or maybe it was just me Whatever the reason I’m actually glad that this wasn’t the first book of hers that I read While the writing here is not bad by any means it didn’t absorb me in the way some of her other books haveI’ve known Gardner to write fascinating complex characters and these are no exception as they grew layered with each piece of the story that unfolded The one character I would have liked to get to know is DD but as she is the lead in the series assume she will develop slowly over the course of each book The plot was not uite as strong for me Although the beginning starts out with a bang uite literally it grew to be a bit slow in the middle before hurtling to an end that was mostly fulfillingI’m glad to have read this and uite curious to see what happens next in the second book of this series Hide I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again I think fans of the show Criminal Minds will like Lisa Gardner’s novels
