Description

Massachusetts State Trooper Bobby Dodge watches a tense hostage standoff unfold through the scope of his sniper rifle. Just across the street, an armed man has barricaded himself with his wife and child. The man's finger tightens on the trigger and Dodge has only a split second to react...and forever pay the consequences. Twenty-five years ago, Catherine Gagnon was buried underground during a month-long nightmare of abduction and abuse. Now, her husband has just been killed. Her father-in-law, the powerful Judge Gagnon, blames Catherine for his death. Mr Bosu survived solitary confinement in a maximum security prison where he'd done hard time for the most sadistic of crimes. Now he walks the streets a free man, invisible, anonymous...and filled with an unquenchable thirst for vengeance. What brings Bobby and Catherine together is a moment of violence-but what connects them is a passion far deeper and much more dangerous. For a killer is loose who's woven such an intricate web of evil no one is above suspicion, no one is beyond harm, and no one will see death coming until it has them cornered, helpless, and alone...Explosive and provocative, ALONE is the new nerve-shattering thriller from international bestseller, Lisa Gardner.show more

Review quote

'A dark and disturbing thriller.' IMAGE magazine 'This is a terrific psychological thriller - and another novel with a clever final twist to send the reader away happy.' -- Peter Guttridge THE OBSERVER 'Gardner has written a fine novel full of twists and it could go all the way for her.' -- Mark Timlin INDEPENDENT ON SUNDAY 'There is an impressive air of gathering menace in this thriller, and you begin to understand why the strap on the cover reads 'Don't turn out the lights!' This is not a book you'd want to read in alone in a dimly lit place.' -- Matthew Lewin THE GUARDIAN 'This fast-moving thriller is a notch above Gardner's previous books and makes her a match for many of her best-selling compatriots.' -- Susanna Yager SUNDAY TELEGRAPHshow more
