Publisher's Summary

#1 New York Times bestseller Lisa Gardner returns with an unpredictable thriller that puts fan favorites D. D. Warren and Flora Dane on a shocking new case that begins with a vicious murder and gets darker from there.

A man is dead, shot three times in his home office. But his computer has been shot twelve times, and when the cops arrive, his pregnant wife is holding the gun. 

D. D. Warren arrives on the scene and recognizes the woman - Evie Carter - from a case many years back. Evie's father was killed in a shooting that was ruled an accident. But for D.D., two coincidental murders is too many.

Flora Dane sees the murder of Conrad Carter on the TV news and immediately knows his face. She remembers a night when she was still a victim - a hostage - and her captor knew this man. Overcome with guilt that she never tracked him down, Flora is now determined to learn the truth of Conrad's murder.

But D.D. and Flora are about to discover that in this case the truth is a devilishly elusive thing. As layer by layer they peel away the half-truths and outright lies, they wonder: How many secrets can one family have?

Resolution for three...

Lisa Gardner is a go to author for me. I really have enjoyed all three of her series (four if you count Tessa Leone as separate from DD Warren).
Anyway, on this DD Warren book, DD share the spot light with two other main characters. The story unfolds with the narrative switching between the three separate points of view.
I've seen some complaints re: Flora Dane. In my opinion this book brings Flora full circle to a place she never thought she could ever return.
Evie Carter has lived a lie for her entire adult life and she will finally learn the truth. And DD will also put closure to a case she could never let go of.
All in all I think this is an excellent book. Not as good as some, better than others but still a HIGHLY RECOMMENDED book.
Kirsten Potter does an outstanding job narrating.

Excellent!

Lisa Gardner is one of my favorite authors of police procedural novels. NEVER TELL in Book 10 in her Boston police detective D.D. Warren series. In this one Warren is chaffing about having a managerial position rather than a murder detective job. Evie Carter is arrested for the murder of her husband after being caught with the murder weapon in her hand. Only, she is not guilty. FBI profiler Pierce Quincy of Lisa Gardner's FBI series and his FBI agent daughter are brought into the case for the first time in a D.D. Warren novel. NEVER TELL is an outstanding suspense thriller but I am down rating it to 4 stars because I am getting tired of the Flora Dane character who gets too big a role in this novel. Kirsten Potter's narration is superb as usual for her.

Book 10 and still awesome!

I have been reading leases books long before this series! I love her detail and the characters! It has to be a challenge to write a book incorporating previous characters and a previous crime to tie it all up! Lisa did an awesome job in this book. She not only gave us a ending to Yves dad‘s murder, but she gave us more details about Flora, which had to be difficult. Flora is now one of my favorite characters along with DD. The main characters are well rounded and well formed. The best part about DD is that she can admit when she is wrong. That is a brilliant detail to have in her personality. I’ll be at that she hesitates to admit she is wrong. LOL
Flora has always been complicated to me, but we are getting more information about her and I definitely warmed up to her character in this book. Lisa has a talent for weaving a wonderful mystery that leaves you guessing until the end. I mainly read mysteries and I didn’t realize who it was until the last few chapters! You will not regret this purchase at all! If you enjoy Linwood Barclay or Lisa Scottline, you will love Lisa Gardner and her DD Warren series or any of her previous books.

Just okay. it was nice for a Saturday.

I live the DD Warren books, but this didnt do it for me. I'm still a fan so I gave an extra star for finally closing out Flora's story. I'm glad she found a way to connect with someone

Not her best ...

I love Lisa Gardner and this series but this book fell a little short for me. The story seemed a bit scattered and old. It won't stop me from buying her next release tho!

I am REAL tired of Flora Dane!

Lisa Gardener is one of my favorite authors but I feel like she's ruining the DD Warren series. Too much about her and her past and not enough about the continuing development of the series characters we know and love. I'm done with hearing Flora relive her past and not moving the story along. I wouldn't mind her as a reoccurring character but we dont have to hear all the past woes from the other characters not even DD anymore so why this one? NO MORE FLORA PLEASE!!!
