Book review: Alone by Lisa Gardner

Publication date: December 27th, 2005

Pages: 451


Alone . . . Massachusetts State Trooper Bobby Dodge watches a tense hostage standoff unfold through the scope of his sniper rifle. Just across the street, in wealthy Back Bay, Boston, 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.

Alone . . . that’s where the nightmare began for cool, beautiful, and dangerously sexy Catherine Rose Gagnon. Twenty-five years ago, she 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 son’s death . . . and for the series of unexplained illnesses that have sent her own young son repeatedly to the hospital. 

Alone . . . a madman 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 rage for vengeance. What brings them 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 that 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.

My first book written by Lisa Garden and I feel that I couldn’t choose a better one. Lately, I’ve been listening to so many audio books, as I can’t find a free time to read one, and this was one of it. I’m still new at this thing but I do know now how important is the voice of the person that reads it. And thank God, up to this moment I came across only good voices. 

I always appreciate a good book, with good descriptions of the environment and characters, and this is one of that books. I had so many feelings while listening to it. I felt sorry for detective Bobby, I had my doubts about Catherine while feeling sorry for her as well, which I think that is what the author wanted me to feel. I felt that I could connect with each of the characters, especially with the protagonists.  

This book has everything. Twists, good reasons for every action, love stories and a bit of action. Exactly what I look for in each book. 

I know that many of you won’t agree with me, but audiobooks come handy at times. Obviously, it doesn’t count as a book read, but rather as a narrated book by a friend of yours, while you do your chores.
