Eddie Como is about to be put on trial for the rape of three women and the death of another. He's shot in the head by a sniper on his way to the courthouse. We are then taken into the world of the Survivor's Club, a club made up of the three women who were slated to testify against Eddie Como. At first glance it would appear that Eddie is guilty as sin, and someone with a grudge against him, yet leave it to Gardner to not only keep us guessing but to show us a criminal mastermind as frighteningly civilized as Hannibal Lector.
Gardner introduces Detective Sergeant Roan Griffin, a man who survived something so horrible, it's only referred to as the Big Boom, an event that had him off the job for a year in order to recover and now he's back on the job dealing with his old life in what he hopes is a `new and improved' way of reacting. Throughout the book, Griffin struggles to keep his legendary temper in check. If he loses control again, he'll lose more than his job, women and children could die this time.
The three women of the Survivor's Club, formed to help them deal with the aftermath of being raped and assaulted by the same man, meet once a month in order to teach each other not to be victims ever again. When their rapist is shot on his way to the courthouse, all three become suspects.
Of course Gardner is not going to make her plot so easy to untangle and once more she surprised me, after taking me on a fantastic journey of suspense.
Reading is my addiction, and Lisa Gardner is my drug of choice.
The puzzle is worthwhile and believable and the characters are interesting. This is a good story, though I had some trouble getting started, partly because of the brutality and disturbing nature of the rapes; once we got down to detection and character development, the book moved better for me, and came to a satisfying conclusion.
I look forward to reading others by this author.
