Product Description

The brilliant standalone thriller from The Sunday Times and New York Times bestseller Lisa Gardner. WHEN YOU CAN'T REMEMBER YOUR PAST.... When Melanie wakes up in hospital all she knows is that she can't remember any of the first nine years of her life and no-one is there waiting for her. For Dr Stokes - who treated Melanie that night - and his wife, their decision to adopt the abandoned child comes as a blessing following their desperate struggle to deal with the brutal murder of their four-year-old daughter, Meagan. But when, after twenty years of happy family life, Melanie suddenly finds her past under investigation by a reporter and an FBI agent, everything she thought she knew about her new life is questioned. And when horrific messages and gifts start arriving, Melanie is forced to face the terrifying reality that her family may be the last people she should trust... WHO KNOWS WHAT YOU'LL FIND THERE?

4.0 out of 5 stars The Other Gardner 16 May 2006
By Amanda Richards VINE VOICE
Having read "Alone" quite recently, I backed up a bit and picked up some other novels by the prolific Ms. Gardner, who also writes under the name "Alicia Scott"

Although similar to "Alone" in that the main female character has a hidden and troubled past, this one is not as polished as her more recent novel, with quite a few plot holes, impossible situations, and gaps that are hastily brushed over with a sentence or two. For example, we learn that one character conveniently "had the knack for bypassing various security systems" which, coming where it did in the novel, appears to be a hastily added after-thought to explain a hole.

Some clumsy dialogue, unnecessary repetition of plot points, laughable love scenes and under-developed characters detract from what could have been an above-average thriller, full of twists and surprises. An okay read, but not one you'd want to remember as your first Gardner novel.
Rated: 3.5 stars

5.0 out of 5 stars Please write more, Lisa! 3 Sep 1999
By A Customer
I, too, loved this book, and have ordered The Perfect Husband (gee, too bad we can't really do that! ha!). The only thing predictable in this book was the romance between Melanie and the detective (what's his name?). Too "pattern". However, the rest of the book was fabulous - many mysteries, many twists, and super surprises. I guessed one of the surprises part way through, but had no idea if I was right, so I was very intrigued. The other surprises were so good! I, also, lost sleep while reading this book! Get back to work, Lisa. I want more books from you.

5.0 out of 5 stars You have to read this book 27 July 1999
By A Customer
I had to read this book in one day. I started it Friday morning, and I did not want to leave it for our dinner reservations Friday night, so I read in the car on the way to the restaurant. Lisa Gardner is very clever. I don't know how she could think up such an engrossing and complex plot. I would definitely recommend this book. Just make sure you put aside a block of time, because you won't want to put it down.

My first Lisa Gardner book and will certainly not be my last. Could not put it down. It had more twists and turns than a fairground ride . Absolutely loved it. Everyone should read this.

5.0 out of 5 stars WOW! 1 Sep 1999
By A Customer
The author of The Perfect Husband has outdone herself! Lisa Gardner has supplied for us avid readers a spine chilling book of murder and lies.
In 1977 Russell Lee Holmes was put to death for murdering six young children. It was always speculated, but never proven that that he also had a wife and child. On the date of his death, he admits to a local reporter that he also killed 4 year old Meagan Stokes five years earlier. Also on the night he is put to death, a 9 year old child found drugged and abandoned at a Boston hospital by none other than Harper Stokes, Meagan's father. The Stokes adopt Melanie and for 20 years life is perfect.
Now 20 years later Melanie receives a call from a sleazy tabloid reporter claming she is really Russell Lee Holmes child. A coverup and conspiracy is uncovered and Melanie must turn to FBI agent David Riggs for help. Did Russell Lee Holmes kill little Meagan Stokes 25 years ago? If not, who? What happened to little Meagan and who is Melanie's brith parents?
Lisa Gardner has written a pageturner that will keep you up until the end. My only question is why wasn't this published in hardback? Surely Lisa Gardner has enough readers.

2.0 out of 5 stars Far fetched and inconsistent 17 Jan 2013
By Bonnie7
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I've given up! I am 40% through and have just decided I really don't care what happens! I can't understand why people have given it five stars. The characters are unbelievable & so is the plot. Life's too short to read books that don't grip you
