Detective D. D. Warren is hard to surprise. But a lone woman outside D.D.’s latest crime scene shocks her with a remarkable proposition: Charlene Rosalind Carter Grant believes that she will be murdered in four days. And she wants Boston’s top detective to handle her death investigation. It will be up close and personal. No evidence of forced entry, no sign of struggle.
Charlie tells a chilling story: Each year at 8:00 p.m. on January 21, a woman has died. The victims have been childhood best friends from a small town in New Hampshire; the motive remains unknown. Now only one friend, Charlie, remains to count down her final hours. But as D.D. quickly learns, Charlie Grant doesn’t plan on going down without a fight. By her own admission, the girl can outshoot, outfight, and outrun anyone in Boston, which begs the question: Is Charlie the next victim, or the perfect perpetrator? As D.D. tracks a vigilante gunman who is killing pedophiles in Boston, she must also delve into the murders of Charlie’s friends, racing to find answers before the next gruesome January 21 anniversary. Is Charlie truly in danger, or is she hiding a terrifying secret that may turn out to be the biggest threat of all?In four days, someone is going to kill me. But he’s gotta catch me first.

OK but not her best by a long shot

I've read/heard most of Lisa Gardner's novels, and she is always good for a suspenseful plot, no doubt. With Catch Me, though, she's woven one too many strands together.

Without spoiling anything, there's internet pedophilia, Munchhausen's By Proxy, hereditary insanity, a serial killer, not to mention invisibily ink, all pressed into one story.

Plus, it's a little too heavy on the New Mom stuff (D.D. Warren's son is ten weeks old in the novel) and on mentioning / including almost every protagonist from other novels (Pierce Quincy, his daughter, J.T. Dillon, etc. - might be smart marketing but I find it annoying). The story sounds as if there was a deadline coming up and pages to fill.

Lisa Gardner's got many novels out that are better than this one ...

Is it enjoyable? Yes. For a large part, that is due to the superb reading skills of Kirsten Potter, though.

Solid Thriller--Sensitive Subject

A gritty psychological thriller, well written, well narrated, well researched. The action is immediate and had me captivated from early in the listen. The story is inventive with plenty of twists that don't seem awkward or contrived. Gardner handles the repulsive problem of child abuse reasonably, although it is a very sensitive subject and particularly violent in this story. The chilling details necessary to build the plot are alarming and should be taken into consideration if you are planning to listen.
My first Gardner novel--chosen because of other readers' reviews--and I was not disappointed. I can understand why Gardner has a loyal following.
