Alone by Lisa Gardner



Alone
by Lisa Gardner
(Kindle Edition)

It was bad enough that Catherine Gagnon survived a horrible childhood abduction where for a month she lived in a cave and was the plaything for her sicko abductor. But now, 25 years later, she faces tragedy again as she fights to keep her son, Nathan. One chilly November night, a police sniper kills her husband, Jimmy, in response to her 911 call claiming he was about to hurt Nathan. Jimmy's death means that his parents, an influential judge and his blue-blooded wife, are more determined than ever to take Nathan from Catherine, whom they see as unfit to mother their only grandchild. True, the birth of Nathan mentally paralyzed Catherine, who could not get past the memories of her abduction and her emotionally absent parents. But is she really the monster the Gagnons and their PI make her out to be? Massachusetts state police special-ops officer Bobby Dodge, the sniper who took out Jimmy, doesn't think so, and unwittingly falls under the spell of the manipulative widow. A twisted, effective psychological thriller.

Alone is a tightly written suspense novel containing interesting characters that I couldn't find myself liking, despite that fact I was drawn into the story.   Intertwined into the unfolding drama is the presence of the serial rapist, manipulation by the late Jimmy's parents, Catherine's calculating nature and Bobby Dodge's determination to resolve the mysteries behind all the deaths around.  It was a real page tuner and kept my interest to the end.
