THE INTERNATIONAL #1 BESTSELLING AUTHOR
A body is found in the hills – but the truth still lies buried...
In a small town in the Deep South, Flora Dane is part of a task force committed to hunting down every last trace of notorious serial kidnapper Jacob Ness. As his last victim, imprisoned by Ness in a small box for over a year, she knew him better than most. Even after his death, his evil still lingers.
But this is the kind of town that doesn’t take kindly to strangers asking questions.
The kind of town where dark secrets lurk just beneath the surface.
The kind of town she might not leave alive.
Featuring Detective D.D. Warren and FBI Special Agent Kimberley Quincy

Having read all of DD’s adventures this book did not disappoint and I think it is the best one in the series so far. Loved reading from DD’s, Flora’s and Kimberley’s perspectives. Looking forward to the next book.
When You See Me - Lisa Gardner GARDNER is one of America's best writers of slick, gripping thrillers and sits at the top of the tree with Karin Slaughter and Tess Gerritsen. Her latest novel brings together characters from various novels – across her entire career in fact – for a complex, exciting and violent pageturner. Gardner first achieved success with her serial-killer novels featuring FBI agent Kimberley Quincy, then forged and even more popular series with no-nonsense cop and mother DD Warren. When You See Me sees them working together, along with former kidnap victim Flora Dane who survived massive perils in the previous Gardner novel. That book should have seen an end to vicious kidnapper Jacob Ness, due to the fact he is now dead, but there are still loose ends to tie up and Fl is part of a special task force. It's best not to give away much else, since is a follow-on from events in previous books, but suffice to say the characters, setting and plot are all top-notch, making for a satisfying culmination of the ongoing story. It's best if you have read Lisa Gardner's previous few novels, but When You See Me can – only just – be read as a stand-alone book.
Another excellent book from Lisa Gardener. This one kept me awake into the night wanting to find out what happened next!
A well written fantastic, good old fashioned thriller. I’ve read a few books by Lisa Gardner and she hasn’t yet disappointed, A great read
Flora Dane is a young woman who survived being held captive for over 12 months by Jacob Ness - now 8 years later, she is a vigilante who occasionally helps the police for other crimes possibly linked to him. When two hikers find an old bone in the forest and identified as an old case, Detective DD Warren is called in to assist with the investigation. Flora Dane and Keith Howard also join in. In a small, quaint little town - they start searching for the remaining bones and instead unearth a decades old secret and more bodies. Helping them is a teenager mute girl who finds a way through her drawings to unravel the secrets kept hidden for so long. This is very different to the normal abduction story lines and keeps you in suspense right up to the end. A brilliant book.
