Lisa Gardner – The Neighbor (Detective D.D. Warren #3)

5422154

Grāmatas apraksts no Goodreads/Synopsis from Goodreads:
A young mother, blond and pretty, vanishes from her South Boston home, leaving behind only one witness—her four-year-old daughter—and one suspect—her handsome, secretive husband.

From the moment Detective Sergeant D. D. Warren arrives at the Joneses’ snug little bungalow, instinct tells her that something is seriously off with the wholesome image the couple has worked so hard to create.

With the clock ticking on the life of a missing woman and a media firestorm building, D.D. must decide whether Jason Jones is hiding his guilt—or just trying to hide. But first she must stand between a potential killer and his next victim—an innocent child who may have seen too much.

Mana recenzija/My review

Varbūt nedaudz negaidīti (ka nav līķa, vismaz sākumā), ka detektīvs Braiens Millers piecina D.D. Vorenu pazudušas personas, konkrētāk Sandras Džounsas, meklēšanā. Ar katru grāmatu šis tas arvien vairāk tiek parādīts/atklāts par izmeklētāju; piemēram, par ēšanas manieri, ko varētu salīdzināt ar tālbraucēju, t.i. pamatīgi daudz.

Pētot arvien dziļāk lasītājs atklāj ar vien vairāk dažādus noslēpumus, kurus katrs no tēliem pavisam noteikti vēlētos, ka tie tādi paliek. Sandra apprecējās īsi pēc pilngadības sasniegšanas jau būdama stāvoklī, un kopā ar vīru Džeisonu pameta dzimto pusi. Var vien just līdzi, kā viņu četrgadīgā meita Klarisa jeb Rī, tiek galā ar radušos situāciju; ne vien mātes pazušana, bet arī mediju uzmanība, un izmeklētāju/policistu klātbūtne; tas pats par tēvu.

Patika momenti no Sandras perspektīvas, kas vairāk kā atstāts par to, kā viss nonāca līdz pazušanas faktam. Gan viņas, gan arī Džeisona bērnība nav bijusi no tām laimīgākajām, kas katru nopietni ietekmējušas. Tas labi izskaidro Džeisona (grūti izprotams no malas) raksturu un uzvedību, kas pamatīgi nokaitina Vorenu un pamatoti liek prātot, vai tik viņš nav vainojams sievas neesamībā.

Lai gan neesmu nedz lasījis, nedz redzējis Gone Girl (lai gan lielo pavērsienu šķiet zinu), tad tieši fragmenti no Sandras skatpunkta, atgādināja dzirdēto.

Par laimi, Džeisonam, viņš nav vienīgais vērā ņemamais aizdomās turamais. Pāris mājas tālāk uz tās pašas ielas dzīvo reģistrēts dzimumnoziedznieks Adrians; līdz ar to arī grāmatas nosaukums. Pat pēc soda izciešanas un apmeklējot obligātās sanāksmes, Adrians joprojām jūtas tā it kā joprojām izciestu sodu, un patstāvīgu nosodošu attieksmi no sabiedrības.

Līdzīgi kā sērijas otrajā grāmatā, arī šajā, bez jau minētajiem aizdomīgajiem tēliem, doti vēl citi, tai skaitā skolnieks, datorģēnijs. Bet šoreiz pavērsiens bija negaidītāks.

P.S. Bobija un Anabellas attiecības tiešām bija nopietnākas kā ar Katrīnu; apprecējušies. :)

                                                                                                                                                

Maybe a bit unexpected for D.D. that this case at least at the beginning doesn’t involve bodies as detective Brian Miller calls for her help to investigate a missing person; that it Sandra Jones. With each book in the series you get new tidbits about Warren like about her eating style and maners which couldn’t differ much from truckers.

So as the investigation digs even deeper many secrets are revealed (not everything), though that some characters would like that they stay that way. Sandra married shortly after 18th birthday plus being pregnant. Together with the new husband Jason they leave there homes. You can only sympathize for their four year daughter Clarissa (called Ree) as she tries understand why mother isn’t at home, and also to deal with media attention and police presence; the same for father.

Liked those fragments from POV of Sandra which tells more about what exactly lead to her disappearance. For both of them (Sandra and Jason) the childhood wasn’t those of particularly happy ones and that has left marks in them. That explains well what and why Jason does and how he tries to cope with fact that his wife has disappeared; this behavior makes D.D. crazy and gives her reasons to blame him.

I haven’t read or seen Gone Girl but those fragments with Sandra’s POV reminded me of what I have heard.

Fortunately for Jason he isn’t the only good suspect. Few houses down the street lives registered sex offender Adrian Brewster. Despite that he has served his time, goes to required meetings and follows his PO advices Adrian still feels like receiving punishment and society’s rejection.

Similarly as in the previous book there are plenty of suspicious characters besides Jason and Adrian, including pupil – computer genius. This time the twist was more unexpected.

P.S. I was right about Bobby and Annabelle, and they managed to marry. : )
