Lisa Gardner is a #1 New York Times bestselling crime novelist. A self-described research junkie, she has parlayed her interest in police procedure and twisted minds into a streak of twenty-plus thrillers. Her latest, WHEN YOU SEE ME, comes out January 28, 2020 and features fan-favorites Boston Detective D.D. Warren, survivor-turned-vigilante Flora Dane, and FBI Agent Kimberly Quincy.
When a shallow grave is discovered outside a small mountain town in Georgia, questions quickly arise. Are these the sad remains of one of infamous Jacob Ness's previous victims? Or the evidence of something worse? The cold case quickly turns

Personally, I think Kimberly and D.D. have some of the best scenes working together. Two fierce investigators who turn to mush when talking about their kids? What's not to love? There will definitely be more Kimberly in 2020 as well. And yes, I'm wondering if Quincy and Rainie can't show up to at least assist. It's all a movable feast at this point, as I'm not a writer who looks that far ahead. But I'm also a sucker for my characters and if there's an opportunity to work someone into a story, I'm definitely going to take it. To recap, NEVER TELL is a D.D., Flora, Kimberly novel. I can already say the 2020 will start there and grow accordingly.

Now, all of you, are missing the obvious: What new character is in NEVER TELL who's worth following? Because there is one. And for love nor money, can I figure him out. A character who stumps the novelist. See, plenty of good reading ahead.(less)

I'm more comfortable writing novels, so shorts are always a challenge for me. I love the topic however. THE GUY WHO DIED TWICE features a man who suffers from Cotard's, a rare neurological disorder where the sufferer genuinely believes he's dead. Except then, of course, he turns up dead. Never fear, Detective D.D. Warren is on the case. Now if only I knew who did it...(less)

Read this compelling thriller in one day. Love PI Roland Ford, one of the most interesting characters around as a marine-turned-boxer-turned-ballroom dancer. And his local crew, the Irregulars are an absolute delight.

It's a question anyone should be able to answer. A question that defines a life, creates a future, guides most minutes of one's days. Simple, elegant encompassing.
