“A suspenseful roller-coaster ride.” (Karin Slaughter)
“Lisa Gardner always delivers heart-stopping suspense.” (Harlan Coben)
He knows everything about you - including the first place you’ll hide.
On a warm summer night in one of Boston’s working-class neighborhoods, an unthinkable crime has been committed: Four members of a family have been brutally murdered. The father - and possible suspect - now lies clinging to life in the ICU. Murder-suicide? Or something worse? Veteran police detective D. D. Warren is certain of only one thing: There’s more to this case than meets the eye.
Danielle Burton is a survivor, a dedicated nurse whose passion is to help children at a locked-down pediatric psych ward. But she remains haunted by a family tragedy that shattered her life nearly 25 years ago. The dark anniversary is approaching, and when D. D. Warren and her partner show up at the facility, Danielle immediately realizes: It has started again.
A devoted mother, Victoria Oliver has a hard time remembering what normalcy is like. But she will do anything to ensure that her troubled son has some semblance of a childhood. She will love him no matter what. Nurture him. Keep him safe. Protect him. Even when the threat comes from within her own house.
The lives of these three women unfold and connect in unexpected ways, as sins from the past emerge - and stunning secrets reveal just how tightly blood ties can bind.
Sometimes the most devastating crimes are the ones closest to home.

Sergeant D.D. Warren is back on the trail, trying to piece together the truth from an unlikely cast of characters.
This is the fourth book in the series by Lisa Gardner. This one was good, but not as good as the third one. It seemed to repeat things a lot. Four stars.
While I had a hard time with some of the premises, I didn't figure out the killer until very close to the end. Pretty good read.
The story is for the most part well written. The characters of Danielle and Victoria are sympathetic characters, each equally fighting a fierce battle. For Danielle that battle is her dark past and for Victoria that battle is raising her son Even. You learn so much about these women and what they had dealt with in their lives leading up to an ending that definitely surpasses that of Gardner's previous book, The Neighbor. The only problem here is with D.D. She played the same role in this book that she played in the last three books in this so-called series. Maybe Gardner tried to through in some character development for her by teaming her up with Alex Wilson who taught at the academy, but in the end all that really did was create someone for D.D to flirt and maybe get serious with. It didn't tell us what kind of person D.D is, why she does what she does what kind of family does she come from. She likes eating, sex and wearing nice clothes. That doesn't say much. She's kind of pushy and sometimes too much for her own good. She likes to be the boss. Her characters major development but she's still far from a Mary Sue. I may not like D.D, but I can somewhat understand her. She's busy workaholic who takes her job seriously. She may not be Harry Bosch or Jane Rizzoli, but she still far from Bella Swan. She actually does stuff.
I recommend this book for the interesting stories for Danielle Burton and Victoria Oliver; and even though the police work seen from D.D's perspective is interesting it still leaves much to be desired. Just like The Neighbor, it is a great story, but it's not D.D's story. Maybe Love You More will paint us a better picture of D.D Warren. And maybe we'll finally learn what "D.D" stands for,

Written in chapters that focus on a specific character in short burst whilst the main story develops in long chapters does not engender connection. All the characters and their stories evtually link but random verses of tunes and nursery ryhmes without any'hooks' to help them make sense in relation to the characters just adds to the confusion and disengagement.
Not her best work
