Book Review: Catch Me by Lisa Gardner

First of all I'd like to comment on the infrequency of my posts. I blame my recent time-zone change. The problem is not jet lag, since mercifully I don't suffer from that, but from the fact that the majority of my readers are in North America and therefore I aim for U.S time zones in publishing. What this means is that if I want to publish my post at 9 AM U.S time, I have all day in Africa to get it ready. However, if I'm living in the U.S and need to have a post ready by 9 AM I have to be way more on the ball than I have been. So, there you have it--a brand new excuse. You're welcome!

And now for my latest book review:
From Goodreads.com: "In New York Times bestselling author Lisa Gardner's latest D.D. Warren thriller, the relentless Boston investigator must solve a coldly calculated murder--before it happens.
In four days, someone is going to kill me . . ."

I loved this book. From the first paragraph it gripped me. I didn't know who the antagonist or protagonist was. I wasn't sure if what I was reading was real (in a fiction sense, of course) or imagined by one of the characters. It grabbed me and the suspense didn't let up the whole time.

Now, I have never read any other books by Lisa Gardner so I was a bit confused by which character I was supposed to attach myself to. I also felt there was a backstory somewhere there that I was missing. Having said that, it didn't take away from the story and it was all explained in the 'author's note' at the end of the book. (You can also get a hint in the Goodreads blurb above where it mentions this is part of a series of books about Detective Warren--though I did not know this at the time of my reading)

I will have to track down more of Lisa Gardner's books because I thoroughly enjoyed this one.
