Grāmatas apraksts no Goodreads/Synopsis from Goodreads:
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.

Mana recenzija/My review
Kā jau pats apraksts, tā varētu teikt, ka arī grāmata ir trīsdaļīga.
Par Bobiju Dodžu, policijas snaiperi, kurš pēc garas maiņas dienas beigās tika izsaukts uz ģimenes konfliktu, kur vīrs pavērsis ieroci pret sievu Katrīnu un četrgadīgo (ļoti slimīgs) dēlu Neitanu. Viss notiek ātri, un Bobijs rīkojas, paļaujoties uz pieredzi un intuīciju, bet rīcības sekas grandiozākas, nekā varētu šķist cilvēkam, kas dara savu darbu. Pats savas muļķības dēļ turpina iesaistīties un kontaktēties ar Katrīnu arī pēc notikušā, maz domājot par savu karjeru. Bet gods kam gods, labi, ka tā. Patika psiholoģe Elizabete Leina.
Katrīna, bīstama, neaprēķināma un sarežģīta sieviete, bet ar traģisku atgadījumu bērnībā, kad 12 gadu vecumā viņu nolaupīja pedofils un maniaks; vien pēc 28 dienām laimīgā kārtā viņu nejauši atrada mežā gūstā (arī izmantota). Notikums atstājis savas sekas/neirozes. Katrīnai gatava darīt absolūti jebko sava neizskaidrojami slimā dēlā labā. Atbilde meklējama gēnos… Šajā ziņā arī vēl daži citi mazāk galveni tēli ņem savu dalību.
Un Ričards Umbrio jeb Mr. Buso kā pats sevi dēvē, tas pats maniaks. Nepatīkams tips, kas prieku gūst, nogalinot citu, un, kas var būt vēl labāk, ja par to tiek maksāts. Kā jau ļaundaris uzskata sevi par neaizsniedzamu, īpaši gudru un izmanīgu, bet var gadīties, ka kļūdās.
Detektīve D.D. Vorena parādās maz par spīti tam, ka viņas vārdā nosaukta sērija. Tad jau cerams biežāk būs manāma nākamajās.
As the synopsis also the book could be divided in three parts.
About Bobby Dodge, police sniper, who at the end of the day after a long gets called to domestic disturbance where a husband threatens with a gun to his wife Catherine and 4 year old son Nathan (very sickly). Everything happens quickly and Bobby uses his experience and intuition but consequences might be greater than someone that does his job as best as he can might think. Because of his own foolishness Bobby continues to interfere in the situation and also see Catherine; you might think he doesn’t think about his carrier, but good enough that he did. Psychologist Elizabeth Lane was likable.
Catherine, dangerous, unpredictable and complicated woman, but in her childhood was a very tragic event. At age of 12 she was kidnapped by a pedophile and maniac, and was found by a chance only after 28 days in forest (was also violated). And the event has made its mark with some neurosis. Catherine is ready do absolutely anything for her inexplicably sick son. The answer is in genes… Considering this there are few other reckonable characters.
And Richard Umbrio or Mr. Buso as he calls himself, the same maniac. Unlikable type who gets pleasure by killing others, and what could you ask more if you even get paid. As a bad guy should he thinks about himself very highly but that might be his demise.
Detective D.D. Warren despite that the series has her name shows up very little. Hopefully more in the next books.
