5.0 out of 5 stars
simply fantastic, 19 Aug 2008
Lisa Gardner has excelled herself in 'Say Goodbye'. It is as much brutal as it is fantastic with a monster so terrifying and twisted it makes your skin crawl. This novel focuses on FBI Special Agent Kimberly Quincy who despite being 5 months pregnant with her first child is thrown into a case involving missing prostitutes but with no bodies and very few clues she teams up with GBI Agent Sal Martignetti to hunt down a sadistic killer who will stop at nothing to gain control.
I couldn't put this book down. I had to pry it from my hands at night and when I did thinking about the story actually gave me the creeps. After a much anticipated book season with many authors not hitting the right note this was a welcomed breath of fresh air. Lisa's characters and plot scream depth and substance. I feel that this book/plot is not only emotionally challenging and disturbing but delves into a truly horrifying world.
A truly exceptional book from an author who continues to surpass her peers
