" In #1 New York Times bestseller Lisa Gardner's latest pulse-pounding thriller, Detective D. D. Warren must face a new fear as a serial killer terrorizes Boston. My name is Dr. Adeline Glen. Due to a genetic condition, I can't feel pain. I never have.I never will. The last thing Boston Detective D. D. Warren remembers is walking the crime scene after dark. Then, a creaking floorboard, a low voice crooning in her ear. She is later told she managed to discharge her weapon three times. All she knows isthat she is seriously injured, unable to move her left arm, unable to return to work. My sister is Shana Day, a notorious murderer who first killed at fourteen. Incarcerated for thirty years, she has now murdered more people while in prison than she didas a free woman. Six weeks later, a second woman is discovered murdered in her own bed, her room containing the same calling cards from the first: a bottle of champagne and a single red rose. The only person who may have seen the killer: Detective D. D.Warren, who still can't lift her child, load her gun, or recall a single detail from the night that may have cost her everything. Our father was Harry Day, an infamous serial killer who buried young women beneath the floor of our home. He has been dead for forty years. Except the Rose Killer knows things about my father he shouldn't. My sister claims she can help catch him. I think just because I can't feel pain doesn't mean my family can't hurt me. D.D. may not be back on the job, but she is back on the hunt. Because the Rose Killer isn't just targeting lone women, he is targeting D.D. And D.D. knows there is only one way to take him down: Fear nothing"-- Provided by publisher.

As usual, a gripping and somewhat disturbing thriller from Lisa Gardner. Halfway through, I thought this was going to be more predictable than usual. I was wrong.

One of the best DD Warren stories. I usually complain about overwhelming amounts of detail that doesn't move the story, but not in this one. Not five stars because the genetic abnormality and the nature/nurture just goes too far.

Excellent. One of her best books yet.

Another one knocked off my D.D. Warren catch-up list. A pair of interesting sisters as the main characters. One with a rare condition that prevents her from feeling any physical pain, but ironically is a pain management therapist. The other who is an incarcerated psychopath who just doesn't have feelings period - for anyone or anything. The serial killer DD is hunting is somehow connected to the sisters. This one was a little more gruesome than the others. Not my favorite of the series, but still a good mystery.

DD Warren, BPD detective, goes back to a crime (murder) scene later that evening, and doesn't remember how she fell down the stairs, grievously injuring herself, or why she had shot 3 times into the wall.
A great thriller, with a few twists that I didn't expect, some I did.
Her pain therapist is a very interesting character, as is her sister.

One of the best books I have read. Yes it can be graphic but if you find that difficult to read, don't read this kind of book. I for one couldn't put it down.

I can't believe that Lisa Gardner actually wrote this book. The style is confusing, and jumps back and forth, not at all like her. Maybe this is what happens when writers are under pressure to put out a book every year. I wonder if ghost writers were involved. I found this very, very graphic, and too much so. Over the top. Sorry Lisa. I hope the next one is better.

I love ALL of Lisa Gardner's Books...This one however is VERY graphic but amazing. Hard to put down. Lisa G is a Genius!

I suffered reading this book until page 193, then gave up and skipped through to the (already) predictable end. Very un..Lisa Gardner-like.

On page 63 and already thinking about jumping ship. Ms. Gardner's writing has gotten more violent the last few books she has written. Will put it aside for a while and reflect on whether I want to try again later. Not a feel good book, and that is what I want right now.
