In four days, someone is going to kill me. . . . Detective D. D. Warren is hard to surprise. But a lone woman outside D.D.'s latest crime scene shocks her with a remarkable proposition: Charlene Rosalind Carter Grant believes that she will be murdered in four days. And she wants Boston's top detective to handle her death investigation. It will be up close and personal. No evidence of forced entry, no sign of struggle. Charlie tells a chilling story: Each year at 8:00 p.?m. on January 21, a woman has died. The victims have been childhood best friends from a small town in New Hampshire; the motive remains unknown. Now only one friend, Charlie, remains to count down her final hours. But as D.D. quickly learns, Charlie Grant doesn't plan on going down without a fight. By her own admission, the girl can outshoot, outfight, and outrun anyone in Boston, which begs the question: Is Charlie the next victim, or the perfect perpetrator? As D.D. tracks a vigilante gunman who is killing pedophiles in Boston, she must also delve into the murders of Charlie's friends, racing to find answers before the next gruesome January 21 anniversary. Is Charlie truly in danger, or is she hiding a terrifying secret that may turn out to be the biggest threat of all? In four days, someone is going to kill me. But he's gotta catch me first.

"A young woman who believes she will be murdered in four days approaches Detective D.D. Warren to ask that she be lead investigator in the murder after it occurs. Perplexed, Warren digs into Charlie Grant's life and slowly discovers her complex secrets and details of her horrific childhood. Just back from maternity leave, D.D. has her plate full with an infant son, a serial killer of pedophiles, and now Charlie's unusual request. Gardner's thriller and Kirsten Potter's voice combine to make an explosive story that listeners will love. As Charlie, Potter delivers a haunting voice, unnerving in its calmness. D.D., the archetypal no-nonsense cop, speaks at a faster pace in abrupt sentences, with tones of testiness and irritation that melt away when she's around her infant son. Potter is an expert at gimmick-free character portrayal. A near-perfect performance. A.R.H. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award (c) AudioFile 2012, Portland, Maine"
