This book had me guessing right from the start to the end. The sense of not knowing what was really going on was palpable and added immensely to the satisfaction in reading it

This review is based on an Advance Readers Version of the book which I received free from the Publisher through the Goodreads First Reads program.

STORY ATTRIBUTES:

ORIGINALITY (standard, high, stellar) - HIGH - the twist at the end is insightful

ACTION (none, some, lots) - SOME - after all there are several murder
investigations going on

SEX (none, some, lots) NONE

PROFANITY (none, some, lots) NONE

The main characters in this excellent crime thriller are:

D.D. Warren - a Sergeant Detective with the Boston Police Department has recently returned to duty after maternity leave and her first cases are two pedophiles who have been killed in their apartmenst at point blank range. Each victim has been shot twice in the head with a 22 calibre gun. No signs of a struggle and each crime scene has been cleaned up and straightened up afterwards. No fingerprints are present , not even of the victim in their own apartment !!

Charlene Rosalind Carter Grant (Charlie) - an abused child Charlie has had two of her closest friends killed on February 21. Her first friend two years ago and her other friend 1 year ago. Even though they lived 1,000 miles apart. Now Charlie is convinced that she will be killed on January 21 which is 4 days away.

Charlie is caught by D.D. Warren near the scene of the second pedophile murder and when questioned Charlie tells her that she will be killed on February 21 and if D.D. gets the case can she please try to figure out who killed Charlie and her two best friends.

While D.D.

I L'OVE to read. I was actually kindly but mercilessly teased by friends and acquaintances alike about the fact that I was never without a book. Now that I have a Kindle it's filled with hundreds of books that I've read or have yet to read. I love it. What a thrill to have a book just magically show up in my mailbox, asking to be read and reviewed. Yes! I'm on it!

The title of this thrilling mystery (my favorite genre, by the way) is "Catch Me" by Lisa Gardner. The back cover pulls you expertly into the story by giving you two pertinent details...

1. Charlie Grant claims she will be murdered in the next four days.
2. She wants Boston's best murder cop, Detective D.D Warren to investigate her upcoming death four days hence.

This begs the question... Is Charlene Rosalind Carter Grant (known as Charlie) actually about to become Boston's next murdered citizen or is she just as crazy as she sounds. This is what Det. D.D. Warren has to find out and she only has four days to do it.

This book is the sixth in Lisa Gardner's series centered around Det. D.D. Warren, a Boston murder cop with a "get'er done" attitude. Det. Warren, now 41, has just had a baby. D.D's afraid motherhood is going to soften her. She comes off of maternity leave to find herself having to balance two unusual cases. One involving Charlie Carter and another that seems to involve a vigilante killer plumbing Boston's seedy underbelly for child predators. Yet the cases seem to strangely be connected. But how could that be?

Gardner is expert in instantly pulling you into her story. Her writing is tight and adds only minimal extraneous information.

Format: Paperback
Not having read a Lisa Gardner mystery in a while, Catch Me reminded me just how much I enjoy reading stories by this author. I can't remember whether the last book I read was a Detective D D Warren novel or not - this is an ongoing series abut a detective's life, both professional and private, as well as other recurring characters according to the Acknowledgements - however, I do remember getting involved in the storyline quickly and never let off right to the end. This one is no different.
Catch Me is a very unusual and intriguing case in which the victim seeks out the homicide detective in person and put her on alert that she will be killed in four days. Charlene Rosalind Carter Grant has done her homework and wants the best Boston cop to solve the mystery that has been building over the past two years. However, their first encounter takes place at another crime scene which does not put the supposed victim in a very good light, particularly a gun carrying police despatcher who obviously has secrets of her own.
As with all her novels, Lisa Gardner covers various storylines and points of view right from the beginning that are intriguingly and masterfully interweaved. The reader is kept guessing and wondering what is going on - just as the detective and her helpers are. Nothing is really left to chance and even the build-up to the 'big finale' with all its intricate parts works beautifully.

By Nicola Mansfield HALL OF FAMETOP 100 REVIEWER on July 5 2012
Format: Hardcover
Reason for Reading: Next in the series.

Tremendous! I just can't wait reading a new Lisa Gardner, some are better than others but I've never been disappointed! This latest volume in the DD Warren series does not disappoint. First off, little time is spent on DD's personal life but we get enough to know the latest details and how she is adjusting to the new changes in her life. Fed up with the downtime she is quite excited to get back on a case and while working one, another case finds her. Of course, it's obvious to any serious crime reader that the two cases will somehow be related to each other which indeed they are, with the first leading to a much larger, more intricate case. The book alternates between the points of view of both D.D. and her team investigating the crimes and the woman who feels that she is the target of a murder. This woman, Charlie Grant,comes across as determined, full of fight and an equal in personality as to how we're used to finding DD herself. A great thriller with many twists and turns. Some interesting people become suspects and knowing who can be trusted is an open question. I sped read this one to the end and am glad to say I am all caught up with this series now! Looking forward to a book next year, Ms. Gardner!
