APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
The main characters in this engrossing crime thriller kept popping up in our thoughts as we went about our day. Two men are fatally shot 16 years apart—and they’re both found dead beside the same woman. Lisa Gardner unravels this mystery with three voices: no-nonsense Boston homicide detective D.D. Warren; confidential informant (and hardened skeptic) Flora Dane; and murder suspect Evie Carter, the shy and confused teacher found holding a gun next to her husband’s bullet-riddled body. Never Tell’s trio of antiheroines owned our attention right up to the book’s dark and satisfyingly realistic big reveal.
In Thriller Award winner Gardner's nail-biting ninth novel featuring Boston PD Sgt. Det. D.D. Warren (after 2017's Look For Me), police break into the home of pregnant math teacher Evelyn Carter, who's standing over her husband Conrad's dead body with a freshly fired gun in her hand. Though Evie claims her innocence, D.D. pegs her as the killer. She remembers investigating Evie 16 years earlier for the accidental shooting and murder of her own father, Earl Hopkins, and concludes that two point-blank-range shootings aren't coincidental. Once the news of Conrad's murder goes public, kidnapping survivor-turned-vigilante and D.D.'s unofficial informant, Flora Dane, asserts that she recognizes Conrad as a man who was acquainted with her kidnapper, Jacob Ness. Flora revisits her dark, disturbing past with the help of a true crime blogger in an effort to connect the two men. As readers unravel secrets that tie these two murders together, Gardner questions how well anyone can truly know spouses and families. The conclusion may not come as a shock, but Gardner's commendable storytelling will keep fans eagerly waiting for the next outing for D.D. and Flora. Author tour.
