Live to Tell, begins with Danielle Burton having a flashback when she was only nine years old, her father murdered her mother and two siblings, before turning the gun on himself, for nearly twenty five years she could not remember all the events of what happened that fateful night, but was haunted with why she was allowed to live, why did he kill them and not me As the anniversary of the slaughter of her family approaches, two very different families, from different neighbourhoods are murdered, only this time there are no survivors Detective D.D Warren struggles to find the connection, hoping they don t have a serial killer on the loose, and is soon led to an acute care facility in Boston for young children, who are not just a danger to themselves, but society, and meets Danielle Burton, a pediatric psych nurse.D.D is shocked, not just to learn such a place exists, but sees first hand these children, some who have been abused in ways, that even the seasoned detective struggles herself to deal with, whereas other children come from very loving homes, but have a mental illness that even today there is little understanding of.Asclues unfold, and there is a suspicious death of a nine year old girl in the facility, D.D knows her answers are within the pediatric psych ward, and her main suspect is Danielle Burton.If you like a good thriller that will keep you on the edge of your seat, and guessing the identity of the killer, then I highly recommend this book Ok, so, DD did not annoy me as much as she did in the previous book The Neighbor, but she still somehow manages to remain my least favorite character in her own series At least this time she doesn t focus on one suspect and try to make that person the killer no matter what However she still doesn t strike me as the sharpest knife in the drawer Her technique for finding a killer seems to be That guy did it No, wait, she did it I had to shake my head at the fact that she seemed convince Ok, so, DD

wait, she did it I had to shake my head at the fact that she seemed convinced early on that on person old killed his entire family despite the fact that the evidence clearly ruled that person out on sheer physical merits I really liked Danielle, the primary narrator of this book She is a nurse in a pediatric psych ward where through the novel we get to hear stories about children with behavorial disorders, some of which do make the children incredibly violent I was also very affected by the narration of Victoria, a mother of one of the kids It was just sad But just like in the previous book I was very satisfied with how the story wrapped and the fate of these characters.I really, really dislike reading stories that deal in children in jeopardy..kidnappings, molestation etc So far with this series it is two for two with this kind of storiy I do like how Gardner is able to create a compelling story and some really sympathetic characters with some great depth But if the stories continue to focus on molested children I may have to say goodbye to this series.It is also a shame that the titular main character just annoys the crap out of me I think one of my biggest problems with DD, besides the fact that she doesn t seem to, you know, figure out stuff through investigation, is that she doesn t seem to be in the job in order to seek justice for her victims She strikes me as a person who just likes to catch bad guys and show how big her balls are She s incredibly antagonistic when she is questioning people Even people who her own evidence proves are not likely to be involved in the crime.Truthfully, I think A lot of my lack of warmth toward her could do with the fact that so far in the two books I ve read in this series, the only time we spend in DD s head is to hear about 1 how pretty hot sexy she is 2 how much she loves to eat and 3 how desperate she is to get laid The most substantive time we get in characters heads are of the people who are the probable perps Gardner does such a good job with making them 3 dimensionally human and making DD somewhat opaque that I just can t seem to warm to DD And truthfully in these last two book, DD didn t do much to solve her own cases the other characters just handed the resolution to her.But I plan to try out the next book, despite DD I am enjoying Gardner s writing Whoo hoo I finally got to learnabout the elusive Detective D.D Warren, or D.D as she is known I started this series at number 3, and tracked back to read in order The books in this series by Lisa Gardner are an awesome set, but funnily enough so far in this series, I feel D.D does take the back seat But she showed herself here, and I really enjoy her character She s a highly committed Detective Sergeant, a hard boss, a hard woman who really does have a soft centre, and this book is wh Whoo hoo I finally got to learnabout the elusive Detective D.D Warren, or D.D as she is known I started this series at number 3, and tracked

really enjoy her character She s a highly committed Detective Sergeant, a hard boss, a hard woman who really does have a soft centre, and this book is where me meet that softer side That probably actually does help offset the dark storyline, one that was highly researched I might add, as we see a very dark side in the disturbing world of very damaged and mentally ill children I appreciated the author s note in acknowledgement of her good friends that experienced first hand this hard road As parents went, she and her husband were, caring, resourceful, and involved And they still thought they were losing the war to save their child They shared their story in hopes of garneringunderstanding for mentally ill children and their often overwhelmed caretakers I love this author s books and also her personal way of sending off each story with reflection One thing this particular story did show me however, as an aside, is that I definitely am a cynic regarding spiritual healers Get to this author if you enjoy an easy fast paced read She s never disappointed me yet Detective Sergeant D D Warren is called in to the type crime scene all law enforcement agents dreadthe murder of children An

called in to the type crime scene all law enforcement agents dreadthe murder of children An entire family was brutally killed and there aren t any clues leading to why, other than the father being suspected of attempted murder suicide When another similar murder happens days later, D D and her team know it can t be a coincidence even though they struggle to find a connection Meanwhile, pediatric trauma nurse Danielle Burton is facing the 25th anniversary of the night that changed her life forever And Victoria Oliver is determined to care for her troubled son, even though her decision not to institutionalize him has cost her immeasurably The cases were tough on so many levels as when children are involved I didn t know how Danielle and Victoria we re eventually going to connect with D D s case but knew they would All three of these situations were highly interesting on their own and combined they made for fascinating reading and listening One added bonus was insight through Danielle of the commitment of nurses like her who provide quality care to highly disturbed children What I learned was eye opening and made me grateful for these professionals who do muchthan warehouse these kids It was worth this aspect of the story alone to get this education D D Warren was front and center, clearly the main focus this time And, her investigative skills improved significantly, most probably because of the influence of Alex Wilson, a former detective now a professor who is shadowing her partner to sharpen his skills He offered her thought provoking challenges to suppositions, keeping her from falling through the normal rabbit holes of honing in on one suspect and making the evidence fit She still has a way to go but I saw clear signs of progress I m really enjoying this series on audio and the use of three narrators for the three points of view worked so well All provided great performances, which made a strong story evencompelling
