Lisa Gardener has developed a winning formula for writing fast paced and intelligent suspense novels. Firstly, we have someone in imminent peril - in this case a husband and wife and their daughter who are kidnapped and held in a mothballed prison in rural New Hampshire. Then she adds the point of view of the investigators - a welcome return in this book for Tessa Leoni who is now working as a corporate investigator and the addition of a local detective (and a very funny guest appearance from DD Warren). We read the first hand account of the main protagonist who slowly discovers what is happening and also reveals things which are part of the explanation of the crime, and this is balanced with the story of the investigation team who are always a little behind but often uncover things unknown to the main character. This is the way in which the author has written her last few books, all of which are excellent, and she uses the same method to tell this story.

This makes for great reading. The frequent switches in points of view from the victim to the investigator helps to reveal things slowly whilst engaging our involvement. There are a large number of red herrings thrown in and plenty of suspects to confuse matters. As always, the full story is not revealed until the last few pages and we are never sure right until the end that there will not be another twist in the story - and there often is. In this book the revelations keep on coming right to the final page.

What makes this book rise above mere formula writing is the clever plotting. The reader thinks that they know what is happening but in actual fact something entirely different is occurring; nobody is who they appear to be and everyone has a secret.

By BCB & More TOP 500 REVIEWER on 5 Feb. 2013
Format: Hardcover
I am a pretty big Lisa Gardner fan, especially of her DD Warren series. Her newest release Touch and Go is due for release in February 2012 but I was fortunate to receive an early reader copy. Her latest book features Tessa Leoni (who also appeared in Love You More) who is called in after the Denbe family are abducted. Upon arrival at Justin and Libby Denbe's home, there are no signs of a break in, and there is no ransom demand. It seems like the couple and their teenage daughter have vanished into thin air. The more Tessa digs, the more it seems a little too perfect. To the outside world they are the perfect couple, with Justin running a very wealthy and successful company and a beautiful home.

As usual the pace is pretty frenetic from the very beginning. Justin and Libby are on date night when then enter their home and are taken by surprise. As the reader we see both sides of the story, both from the family's perspective and the Detectives as well. As the story progresses we also meet Sergeant Wyatt Foster who participates in the case with Tessa. Having read the book Love You More I was familiar with Tessa's history, however if you haven't read it there is certainly enough background for readers to understand her past. I really loved Tessa and Wyatt working together and thought they made a good team

From the very early stages, although we see what is happening to the family (can't say too much for fear of spoilers) we also see the police trying to solve the puzzle. With no clear cut motive it means examining every person who is close to the family. I found myself constantly changing my mind on who I thought was culpable, and thankfully it only became clear towards the very end (which is always a bonus in my eyes).

Touch and Go, in my opinion, is Lisa Gardner's weakest novel to date. A very wealthy Bostonian family are kidnapped by a highly skilled, organised trio yet there is no ransom demand. On the surface, Justin and Libby Denbe, along with their 15 year old daughter (her name escapes me) are the perfect little family. However, it soon becomes apparent that Justin was cheating on his wife, Libby is addicted to prescription painkillers in a hope to overcome the hurt of having a cheating husband and the daughter, feeling isolated, sleeps with somebody she really should not have.

The family are captured and held captive in a newly built prison left empty in the wilds of New England. Mostly, Libby cooks for her family and captors and worries about the sodium content in the tinned food, Justin struts around as the Alpha male and the daughter kind of drifts around. They sleep and they argue in their cell. They are tasered a lot and Justin is quite badly beaten up. Nothing much else happens here.

The investigators tasked with trying to find this little domestic disaster are Private Investigator Tessa Leoni (hired by Denbe Construction) Detective Wyatt Somebody (who spends a lot of time thinking about wood) and two FBI agents (can't remember their names), one of whom is a replica of Kimberly Quincy's ice maiden persona but with none of the personality. They spend most of their time interviewing everybody in sight and then rushing to the prison to save the day.

My favourite characters by far were two of the 'baddies' - Z and Radar, the dastardly devils! Z is the leader - a highly disciplined, lethal and clever military man, he is without doubt the best part of this book. The second redeeming character is Radar, a nerdy ex soldier with medical skills that prove highly useful.
