Recensie(s)

Praise for Catch Me New York Times best-selling author Gardner always plays in the big leagues, but this scare-your-socks-off thriller is a grand slam, packed with enigmatic characters (some good, some crazily evil), expert procedural detail, and superb storytelling. -- Library Journal on Catch Me Gardner has become one of the best psychological thriller writers in the business. The compelling characters, the shocking plot and the realistic atmosphere of how police operate make this a must read for any suspense aficionado. -- Associated Press on Catch Me The creepy meter is off the charts--though not sensationalized--with children the target of physical, psychological, and sexual abuse at the hands of both strangers and parents. And, somehow, miraculously without any contrivance, Gardner's conclusion delivers a welcome glimmer of hope. -- Booklist (starred review) on C atch Me Gardner's sixth Det. D.D. Warren thriller grabs from the get-go. -- People on C atch Me A solidly enjoyable thriller that will keep you on the edge of your chair as you turn the pages and listen for any strange noises around you. -- Huffington Post on Catch Me Irresistible. -- Kirkus on Catch Me Praise for Touch & Go This no-holds-barred stand-alone from Thriller Award-winner Gardner opens with the brutally efficient kidnapping of the Denbe family--father Justin, wife Libby, and 15-year-old daughter Ashlyn--from their exclusive Back Bay townhouse....Gardner effectively alternates between the physical and emotional disintegration of the family under the pressure of their captivity and the efforts of [Invesigator Tessa] Leoni and company to dig into the secrets of Denbe Construction, its key employees, and its finances, as well as to locate the Denbes. The suspense builds as the action races to a spectacular conclusion and the unmasking of the plot's mastermind. -- Publishers Weekly [A] thrill ride... Even readers who figure out the ringleader long before [Investigators] Tessa and Wyatt will get behind on their sleep turning pages to make sure they're right. -- Kirkus Reviews Gardner's depiction of a woman in the midst of emotional chaos is spot on, as usual, and she proves herself just as capable when it comes to creating intriguing men. Readers will want to see more of Wyatt, just as they grew to appreciate Bobby Dodge in Gardner's earlier books. -- Booklist New York Times best-selling author Gardner ( Love You More ; Live To Tell ; Alone ) always plays in the big leagues, but this scare-your-socks-off thriller is a grand slam, packed with enigmatic characters (some good, some crazily evil), expert procedural detail, and superb storytelling. -- Library Journal on Catch Me Gardner has become one of the best psychological thriller writers in the business.

    Het boek zit boordevol spanning en je hebt echt geen idee hoe het af gaat lopen. Het blijft tot het einde toe leuk om verder te lezen.
    Alleen jammer dat er blijkbaar ook een verhaallijn langs moet lopen waarin twee detectives elkaar leuk moeten gaan vinden...
