"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 twenty-five 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.

"The fourth Detective D.D. Warren mystery is as riveting as it is unsettling. Gardner takes the tragic elements of children who become psychotic from abuse, family annihilation, and survivor guilt and produces a story of horror that is difficult to listen to but almost impossible to set aside. Good chapter organization, skilled character development, and crisp writing keep the action moving and the individuals readily identifiable. The use of an ensemble for narration gives even more definition to the three women who carry the story. Minor characters, especially young children, are also portrayed realistically. This fast-paced mystery, well suited to audio, should please Gardner's fans and attract new ones. M.O.B. (c) AudioFile 2010, Portland, Maine"
