WHO DO YOU LOVE?
 
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?
 
AND HOW FAR WOULD YOU GO . . .
 
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.

I've gotten a little behind on my Lisa Gardner series, so playing catch up. This was a really good installment in the DD Warren series and the first book with Tessa Leoni. Alternating chapters from DD and Tessa are both good. DD investigating the crime and Tessa giving the background to what happened. Tessa being a bit of an unreliable narrator keeps you guessing as to what really happened. Pulled me in from the first page. Lisa Gardner is one of the best in the crime/mystery genre.

I usually do not read detective stories but I really enjoyed this book.
Det. D.D. Warren and her partner in crime were fascinating characters.
A great story of passion & crime and a great ending. I will definitely be reading more of her novels as long as there is not to much tragedy in the story line. I finish reading this book in Sept 2017

I think the story was interesting enough, which kept me reading.
The thing I didn't like about the book was 7/8 of the way through the book the author leads you down a single storyline and then bam! Out of the blue, it changes and DD Warren and Bobby suddenly have the light turned on and follow a different angle.
I really didn't care for DD Warren; she was way too brash, and Bobby was way too passive.
But....I gave it 3 stars because it made for an interesting read.

I was at first put off by the 1st half of this Novel. I put it down thinking I was done with it. Later I figured what the heck, picked it up again and was not disappointed. The second half was so good! I am now a fan of Lisa Gardner!

This book by Gardner got laborious at places. I love Gardner though. She is an amazing writer and the way she write these mystery books is so good. This one kind of seemed a bit off.

I enjoyed this story and characters, I recommend reading it prior to her "stand alone" book Touch & Go so you know the characters background. I read it in a day.
