I do wish publishers would stop giving the impression that books which were originally released over 10 years ago (in this case 2001 for the UK) are masquerading as new books. Fortunately, I hadn't read this one so I enjoyed the story but feel annoyed that I was caught out by a sleight of hand!

The book is based around a series of mass killings at various schools throughout the US which actually took place. Regrettably, they still do. Make no mistake, this is a crime thriller and does not pretend to reflect on the real-life events. It does, however, spend some time, via the main protagonists, trying to rationalise the reasons for such outrages. Since the answer has not yet been found, mainly due to the lack of first hand perpetrators killing themselves before they are taken into custody, the chances are high that more school killings will occur.

In this novel, the disturbing clue which leads to a tense investigation is just why one of the victims, a teacher, was killed with a single shot to the head when the other victims were killed in a spray of bullets.

Officer Lorraine Conner, yet another police person with a haunted past, leads this investigation, little knowing that she, herself, has become the grand finale. Meantime, FBI profiler Pierce Quincy arrives on the scene to lend his support, a man specializing in child psychology with, guess what, a troubled past.

If one cuts out the author's take on why these events happen, this is well up to Lisa Gardner's high standards of storytelling. She intertwines the horrific event in Conner's earlier life resulting in the killing of her mother, with the manipulation of a young schoolboy by the real killer responsible for the mass killings at three of the schools.

what a load of codswallop . I thought I'd bought a crime thriller not a rehash of a mills and Boone novel.... weak little woman seeks protection from strong testosterone driven masculine but emotionally damaged ex mercenary. oh please ! Give me strength. Could
this book have been any more unrealistic. Guess how it ends. You won't be surprised.

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

A lot of macho nonsense. But don't let this poor first novel put you off this writer. I've read several of her other books and she's an excellent writer. Read the others - highly recommended - but don't waste your time on this one.

I happened upon this novel in a local store (cheaply!) and thought it sounded 'quite' interesting. How wrong can I be!! From the very first page I was completely engrossed.
From a storyline that sends shivers up your spine, to a whole host of characters each with their own secrets and flaws, there is nothing more you can want in a thriller.
My advice, BUY THIS BOOK NOW. I have since bought another two of her novels which shows that ... first impressions can indeed be deceptive ... (read the book and you'll know what I mean!!!)

First of all let me say that the tagline 'What if the man you love wanted to kill you? is highly misleading. At the time the novel takes place Tess no longer loves her (ex) husband - she was terrified of him throughout their marriage, even before he was exposed as a serial killer. In fact all the really interesting stuff - Tess's suspicions, her life with a controlling serial killer, her actions which brought him to justice, his (first) attempt to kill her all take place before this novel began and are seen only in flashback. Instead the novel focuses on the ridiculous relationship between Tess and a mercenary she hires to teach her to fight/protect her against her evil husband who has conveniently escaped from prison. Our heroine's ridiculous decision to refuse police protection (though for some reason she is quite happy to leave her daughter in the hands of the police reasoning that she will be safer that way???) is justified to some extent by the stupidity of the police involved in the case but sadly I didn't have have much faith in her vigilante plan either.

JT is probably the least convincing tough mercenary ever in fiction - he's more tortured romantic hero than Dirty Harry and the concept that he could teach the rather wet Tess enough self defence to take on a psycho who has killed two prison guards with his bare hands is ludicrous to say the least. In fact this grisly sub plot only exists for the two to fall in love and for LG to subject the reader to pages of purple prose ('she arched against him'/'Hold me, she whispered') which are not only painful to read but highly inappropriate in the context - Tess's daughter has been kidnapped - you probably saw that one coming! - and she and JT are preparing to take on a pyscho.
