But as D.D. delves deeper in to the details of Charlie's case, she begins to question the young woman's story. Because Charlie can now outfight and outrun anyone she meets and D.D.'s instinct is that she's hiding a secret. A secret so explosive that Charlie herself may turn out to be the biggest danger of all...

...BUT THE SON OF A BITCH HAS GOT TO CATCH ME FIRST.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 A real page turner 3 avril 2013
Par neko TOP 1000 COMMENTATEURS
Format:Broché
Tous les ingrédients pour faire un bon polar sont réunis : un personnage énigmatique (Charlie Grant ) à l'histoire familiale chargée, la folie d'une mère, un personnage récurrent (D.D.Warren)qui évolue, un compte à rebours prenant (le 21 janvier comme date fatidique), une tension quasi permanente. Très prenant et très facile à lire en anglais.
Thrilling, gripping, interesting characters. A real page turner.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Another corker in the DD series... 2 février 2012
Par Best Crime Books - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle
Lisa Gardner has been on my must read list for some time now and I have particularly loved the Quincy/Rainie series. However, in more recent books the DD Warren series has been predominant which I have taken my time to grow to like as much as the Quincy books. Having said that; after Lisa's last book in this DD Warren series I can honestly say I was hooked. DD Warren is a typical no-nonsense Detective, and she has her work cut out for her in this latest book.

Charlie Grant is the main focus of the story and from the very beginning we are shown her sheer terror. Charlie is convinced that on 21st January she will be murdered. Whilst dealing with another crime scene, Charlie confronts DD and asks her to make sure she investigates her imminent death properly.

The nicest thing about this book is we see the slight change in DD's character and she comes across as a much softer woman following the birth of her son. DD and her team are also working on the killing of people involved in sex crimes. This storyline interlinks with the main one regarding Charlie nicely. From the very beginning the plot is very fast paced and there is a sense of frenzy as we read about Charlie trying to out-run the person coming to kill her.

The story picks up considerable pace around the halfway mark and the two stories run alongside each other nicely. The best part about this book for me was seeing much more of DD's personal life and the ways in which she has changed. The story kept me turning the pages quickly and the story kept me guessing until the very end. We do see glimpses of characters from previous books such as retired FBI profiler Pierce Quincy, as well as fleeting glances of J.T Dillon and Sergeant Roan. Although I have grown to love DD Warren, I would still love to see another book released featuring Quincy!

Overall, this was one of the best in the DD Warren series and although part of a series could certainly be read as a stand alone book. I think Lisa Gardner fans will be thrilled with the new, softer DD Warren and new readers will be pleased to read such an engaging book. A definite page turner and I would definitely recommend it.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 "The monsters are everywhere." 3 février 2012
Par Luan Gaines - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
Boston detective DD Warren is faced with a most unusual case when Charlene Rosalind Carter Grant reports an impending homicide: "In four days someone is going to kill me." The murderer-at-large has already taken the lives of Grant's two best friends on January 21st of consecutive years. As part of a trio of best friends since grade school, Charlie figures she is next on the list, the past year spent on a rigorous schedule of self-defense lessons and graveyard shifts as a 9-1-1 dispatch operator. Charlene does not expect to survive beyond the looming date. Unsurprisingly, Warren's dance card is already full with a new baby, a looming visit from parents and a spate of recent murders of known pedophiles demanding the Boston PD's immediate attention. Now DD must balance the crimes on hand with a case yet to be a case, the assistance of a Special Victims detective much appreciated.

Gardner tells her story through two voices, the soon-to-be victim, and the lead detective, in chapters that reveal Charlie's childhood of unabated abuse at the hands of her mother and current threat from an unknown killer and the thoroughly professional approach of a seasoned investigator happy for the assistance of Detective O, who contributes another perspective, one that includes suspicion of the enigmatic Charlie Grant. The result is a thriller that at first seems predictable- until Gardner pulls the rug out from under any easy assumptions and injects an unexpected angle to her plot. Filled with relevant information about the behavioral adaptations of online pedophiles, police procedures during homicide investigations and the emotional demands on 9-1-1 operators on shift, the action accelerates in a nightmarish scenario that highlights the perverted creativity of criminals and the damage to innocents, in this case the past come alive in pursuit of restitution in the present. Luan Gaines/2012.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Has motherhood mellowed D.D.? 7 février 2012
Par Susan Tunis - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié
Boston homicide detective D.D. Warren is back! And at the age of 41, she's dealing with first-time motherhood. In fact, she's just returned from maternity leave, and her first case back involves what appears to be a serial killer of pedophiles. While the Boston P.D. isn't mourning the victims, they aren't about to turn their backs on some kind of vigilante killer.

Outside one of the crime scenes, D.D. finds a suspicious note on her windshield, and spots a woman watching her. Once D.D. chases her down, she meets Charlene Rosalind Carter Grant, a young woman with an amazing story. In short, Charlene believes that she's about to be murdered in a few days on January 21st, just as her two closest friends were in the two preceding years.

The novel is told in three narrative threads, that of D.D.'s investigation, the continuation of Charlene's story, and a third storyline involving a young boy who is clearly being cyber stalked. It moves at a consistently fast pace that is sure to keep you turning pages. The plot of this novel is very complex. There's a lot going on, and if you figure it all out, you're a lot smarter than me. Stories with as many twists and turns as this one has can seem contrived, but Ms. Gardner has managed to put all of her puzzle pieces together so meticulously that I never felt she was cheating. It was beyond impressive!

As tight as the plotting is, perhaps the most satisfying aspect of this novel is watching the evolution of this central character that we've gotten to know so well over the years. Every time I finish one of these novels, I'm left looking forward to the next case and the next chapter in D.D.'s life.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Arguably the best in the series to date 10 février 2012
Par Bookreporter - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié
Plan to stay awake for a few nights after reading the latest installment of Lisa Gardner's D.D. Warren series. You'll certainly be up a night or two reading it, but you'll be up for several more worrying about the children in your life, be they offspring, nephews, nieces, grandchildren, or what-have-you. Gardner pulls out all the stops in CATCH ME, making it arguably the best in the series to date.

D.D. Warren is a hard-nosed, rough-edged Boston homicide detective who has just returned to work following maternity leave, and her first case back is one that hits close to home. Someone is killing child molesters and doing a fine job of it. Naturally, the police are eager to catch the perpetrator, though some would rather give him a medal than see him get arrested. D.D. is confronted by a young woman named Charlene Grant at the scene of the second homicide. Charlie wants D.D. to investigate another murder: her own, which she is sure will take place in a few days. She explains that someone has killed her two best friends on January 21st over the course of the past two years. That date is approaching yet again, and she's convinced she'll be next.

Charlie does not appear to be unstable; she is employed as a dispatcher for a suburban Boston police department, and, as is demonstrated at one point, is a valued employee with a cool head in an emergency. At the same time, though, evidence is slowly but inexorably mounting that demonstrates that Charlie may well be the suspect D.D. is seeking in the pedophile murder cases. Additionally, whether Charlie is murdering child molesters or otherwise, she has a secret that she can never reveal to anyone.

Meanwhile, D.D. is experiencing her own trials and tribulations with a newborn, as she and her child's father balance law enforcement careers with the demands of parenthood and, of course, the event that she desires the least and dreads the most: a visit from her parents. Domestic travails aside, however, January 21st is just around the corner, and D.D. and her team do not know whether to treat Charlie as a suspect, a victim, or both. As the two cases slowly intersect, D.D. quickly finds that there is more than one potential victim to protect as the murderer strikes from a totally unexpected place.

CATCH ME is a terrifying book for two reasons. The first lies in the prologue, which recounts a nightmarish event in the lives of two little girls, who are rousted from their beds by their mother, who, by any standard, is not right --- not by a long shot. The second is a by-the-numbers account of how child molesters locate, stalk and eventually meet their targets, utilizing online gaming sites. As with the best of mystery and thriller novels, Gardner's latest raises interesting questions and inspires passionate emotions. Do laws adequately protect children from exploitation? What steps can a parent take to protect their kids who are online? Are the police enough? This puzzling and confounding mystery will have you guessing practically until the end.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Gardner delivers the thrills and chills 29 février 2012
Par Bill Garrison - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié
CATCH ME is another good thriller by best-selling author Lisa Gardner, yet I can't help but think that her plotting has become a little clever for her own good. In my opinion, some of the techniques used to generate suspense in this novel do nothing except confuse the reader. However, it could just be me. And I generally enjoyed the novel. Gardner's novels always carry the themes of justice for the innocent, especially children, and this book is no exception.

Boston Detective DD Warren is raising a baby, worrying about a visit from her parents, and trying to solve what appears to be a serial murder attacking child predators. At the scene of the latest murder, Charlie Grant shows up and asks Det. Warren to stop her from being murdered. Charlie knows she will die on January 21st, because for each of the last two years, her two best friends have died on that date.

There are some really good parts: Seven-year old Jesse messing around online where predators lurk. The suspense of finding out what really happened to Charlie. Did Charlie have anything to do with killing the sexual predators? Coming out of the story is the message that all parents should be very diligent in monitoring their kids' online activities.

Maybe its just a personal preference, but it seems like Gardner went out of her way create suspense and mystery when there would have been an easier way to do it. Of course maybe I'm wrong, Gardner tried to get the reader going one direction, a direction that would have been horribly clichéd if true, so maybe that is what turned me off.

If you haven't read many Gardner books, just know that she's done better, but this is still a good one. I was going to complain about the appearance of so many past characters showing up in this novel, but Gardner covers that in her acknowledgements. Overall, a good, but not great novel. Gardner is still one of my favorites.
