Alone . . . Massachusetts State Trooper Bobby Dodge watches a tense hostage standoff unfold through the scope of his sniper rifle. Just across the street, in wealthy Back Bay, Boston, an armed man has barricaded himself with his wife and child. The man’s finger tightens on the trigger and Dodge has only a split second to react . . . and forever pay the consequences.Alone . . . that’s where the nightmare began for cool, beautiful, and dangerously sexy Catherine Rose Gagnon. Twenty-five years ago, she was buried underground during a month-long nightmare of abduction and abuse. Now her husband has just been killed. Her father-in-law, the powerful Judge Gagnon, blames Catherine for his son’s death . . . and for the series of unexplained illnesses that have sent her own young son repeatedly to the hospital. Alone . . . a madman survived solitary confinement in a maximum security prison where he’d done hard time for the most sadistic of crimes. Now he walks the streets a free man, invisible, anonymous . . . and filled with an unquenchable rage for vengeance. What brings them together is a moment of violence—but what connects them is a passion far deeper and much more dangerous. For a killer is loose who’s woven such an intricate web of evil that no one is above suspicion, no one is beyond harm, and no one will see death coming until it has them cornered, helpless, and alone.


Both state troopers and BPD are involved in this case. It focuses on tragedies in one family both current and past. It is difficult to discern exactly which family member is responsible for each death. Medical issues of the youngest family member become a key element in solving the case. For many primary characters childhood traumas affect their involvement. Meanwhile, bodies are accumulating.

It would be helpful to the reader if they were reading all books in the series sequentially.
I don't read a lot of fiction but I took a vacation to san Francisco and I wanted some light reading. I really enjoyed the story I liked the main character, Bobby Dodge, a sniper for the special swat team STOP. The plot is about Dodge shooting this guy who happens to be a judge son and dodge life turns upside down and in the middle of all this is female fatale a beautiful and dangerous woman named -Catherine.
I liked the plot , it moves fast and the villain was powerful and unbeatable. I would read another book from Garner.
Lisa Gardner is one of the best suspense writers. Literally. I just read all of her books again and they still amaze me. My only complaint is when one of her characters repeats three words or phrases in his/her head. Again, again and again. Every book. I don't mean to be critical, but once I noticed the pattern, it stands out more, and it bothers me now. So now, I find myself looking for it. Bracing for it. It's distracting.
Regardless, her books never fail to entertain and surprise me. She is a master. I wish she could write a book every month.
Those who have read earlier Lisa Gardner suspense novels should be warned that her 2005 breakthrough novel "Alone" is a much leaner and meaner story than they may have come to expect from Gardner, who manages here both to tighten her plot and to create characters of lasting interest.

"Alone" introduces Bobby Dodge, Massachusetts state police sniper, who is called to a domestic hostage situation - a young mother and her small son are being held prisoner by her gun-wielding husband. As Bobby watches through his rifle scope, the screaming husband moves to pull the trigger and Bobby becomes the only one who can save the woman and child.

But did Trooper Dodge read the situation correctly? Who was the victim? The distraught wife turns out to be Catherine Gagnon, who survived a childhood kidnapping and rape, and has learned to use her incredible beauty to manipulate the men in her world. Also, according to her in-laws, she is an unfit mother who may be responsible for her four-year-old son's frequent trips to the ER. Was Jimmy Gagnon, Catherine's husband, a loving father attempting to end his marriage and save his son, or a drunken bully?

Is Bobby Dodge a hero? Or a murderer? As the Boston Police Department team, led by Bobby's former lover, D.D. Warren, investigates the shooting, Bobby faces a civil suit brought by Jimmy's parents.

Gardner has written a tight novel filled with memorable characters. Bobby and Catherine are fully developed, complex characterizations. D.D. Warren, Gardner's iconic police detective, has a lesser, but important, role to play here. And for those who have read the later novels, fear not, she's as hungry and irascible as ever.

There are no easy answers in this mystery, and the suspense builds with each chapter.

Four Stars. The bottom line? "Alone" is a tightly written suspense novel containing interesting and well developed characters. However, the `shoot out' near the end, as many reviewers have noted, is difficult to follow and clumsy. (This shouldn't diminish overall enjoyment of the novel, but it's a one star deduction.)
I'm half way through and I can hardly believe how realistic, how believable, is the dialogue and the thinking that is described in this noire novel. There is not a moment when I don't believe in what is taking place. The suspense is growing in multiple directions and around a number of different characters. This is my second novel by Lisa Gardner as well as my second D.D. Warren novel. It's is a different experience seeing the detective that is named with a series actually playing almost bit roles and not dominating the action and getting it right most or possibly any of the time. I'm beginning to suspect that's part of the what makes Lisa Gardner's novels different. Apparently she uses D.D. Warren primarily to alert the reader to a style of writing and plot building in which the named detective isn't really central to the plot. It is equally interesting to see just how well that works.
Grabs you the minute SWAT sniper Bobby Dodge steps back after shooting, and then suddenly he's a suspect in a murder. I kept shaking my head and asking what's going on? And almost yelling at Dodge, "Don't go there!" Ah men, where are your brains sometimes?
This was my first Lisa Gardner book and I was expecting Detective D.D. Warren but only saw mention of her a couple times. So I still don't have a handle on that detective but will be trying a couple more of these books.
