by Lisa Gardner – Heartbreaking, tragic and frightening, this Detective D.D. Warren novel takes us inside the worlds of families with violently psychotic young children and of the people who try to intervene. Warren is trying to solve two family-annihilation murders, with no apparent connection except the strikingly similar manner and scope of the mayhem.
In this midst of the darkness, Warren finds some light: a temporary addition to her usual investigative team, His name is Alex, and Warren hopes to explore their intense chemistry at length, once she wraps up this ever-shifting case… and before another family is killed.
An excellent read. (finished 7/22/14)
