2007: #50 – Alone (Lisa Gardner)
Book #50 was Alone by Lisa Gardner. The back of the book reads:
Who can you turn to when you’re at your most vulnerable?
State Trooper Bobby Dodge watches a tense hostage standoff through the scope of his sniper rifle. dodge has only one second to react, or a woman and her child may die.
Where can you hide when this killer comes?
The woman at the other end of Bobby Dodge’s rifle isn’t only in trouble–she is trouble. Cool, beautiful, and dangerously sexy, Catherin Rose Gagnon’s life will change in an instance of violence.
It’s the most terrifying place to be…
When Bobby pulls the trigger, someone will die. And then no one will be above suspicion, no one beyond harm. And no one will see death coming until it has them cornered, helpless and alone.
This is the first Lisa Gardner book I’ve read, and I thought it was great. It doesn’t have the usual male-lead/female-lead dynamic, and Gardner does a wonderful job of keeping you wondering about Catherine for the entire book. At the end, you’re still not sure about her. This was a suspenseful book that keeps you guessing!

I’m so glad you enjoyed this book. It is not Lisa’s best but it was good. I think The Survivors Club is her best. The Killing Hour is another good one. I had a hard time putting it down. How you have to read Hide. It’s next in the series.
