Irresistible high-wire melodrama, though it’s easy to see why D.D. observes, “I think we just fell into a Lifetime movie.”

Synopsis

A Detective D. D. Warren novel from #1 New York Times bestselling author Lisa Gardner.

“SHOCKING…A ‘MUST READ’ FOR ANY SUSPENSE AFICIONADO.”—Associated Press

Charlene Grant believes she is going to die. For the past few years, her childhood friends have been murdered one by one. Same day. Same time. Now she’s the last of her friends alive, and she’s counting down the final four days of her life until January 21. 

Charlene doesn’t plan on going down without a fight. She has taken up boxing, shooting, and running. She also wants Boston’s top homicide detective, D. D. Warren, to handle the investigation.

But as D.D. delves deeper into the case, she starts to question the woman’s story. Instinct tells her that Charlene may not be in any danger at all. If that’s true, the woman must have a secret—one so terrifying that it alone could be the greatest threat of all.

ONE OF LIBRARY JOURNAL'S BEST THRILLERS OF THE YEAR




From the Paperback edition.

Catch Me’s finest features are its two tough heroines and opaque trajectory – though we recognize the red herrings as they are tossed, that doesn’t lead us any closer to the truth.
