Just when you thought you'd learned just about everything about Flora
Danes, Lisa Gardner proves you wrong. Previous books in the D.D. Warren series scratch at
the surface but D.D. Warren, through the ingenious writing of Lisa
Gardner, would never stop there. In NEVER TELL, we are once again instantly immersed in a
crime drama with so many levels it seems impossible to corral all the
information and get to the real story...
This book begins with Flora Dane questioning the events that took
place in FIND HER, along with
some facts and information that readers do not know about until this
book. Once again we follow the story told through the eyes of the main
characters - D.D. Warren, Evie, and of course, Flora. Three women now
forever linked through drama and tragedy that has spanned many
years. To each of them, these years equaled a lifetime in their own
personal ways and yet there does seem to be a common thread. And
that's what NEVER TELL is all
about: finding that common thread which means delving deep into new
and old events, and ultimately dredging up better-forgotten memories.
Full of surprises and insights, NEVER
TELL is a cleverly thought out page turner - one not easily
forgotten and is destined to take up your days and night. Lisa Gardner
digs up every possible event that leads toward solving what turns out
to be a multitude of crimes. The scope of the investigation is amazing
and the author's research is noteworthy.
NEVER TELL is about a murder and
then the ensuing cover-up. It looks pretty cut and dry but this is a work
by Lisa Gardner, so stay alert because we all know that it can't be that
easy. The cast of characters is so well written and conceived that they
feel real. And armed with a huge amount of facts and details NEVER TELL comes to a conclusion
that will truly surprise. Lisa Gardner writes smart books and this one is
#1 New York Times bestseller Lisa Gardner returns
with an unpredictable thriller that puts fan favorites D.D.
Warren and Flora Dane on a shocking new case that begins
with a vicious murder and gets darker from there.
A man is dead, shot three times in his home office. But his
computer has been shot twelve times, and when the cops
arrive, his pregnant wife is holding the gun.
D.D. Warren arrives on the scene and recognizes the
woman--Evie Carter--from a case many years back. Evie's
father was killed in a shooting that was ruled an accident.
But for D.D., two coincidental murders is too many.
Flora Dane sees the murder of Conrad Carter on the TV news
and immediately knows his face. She remembers a night when
she was still a victim--a hostage--and her captor knew this
man. Overcome with guilt that she never tracked him down,
Flora is now determined to learn the truth of Conrad's murder.
But D.D. and Flora are about to discover that in this case
the truth is a devilishly elusive thing. As layer by layer
they peel away the half-truths and outright lies, they
wonder: How many secrets can one family have?
