catchme-196x300Genre: Mystery, Suspense
Publisher: Penguin Group
Publication Date: February 2012

Charlene Rosalind Carter Grant has four days left to live. Her best friends were both murdered exactly one year apart. As the last remaining friend of the childhood trio, Charlie is convinced she is the next victim. However, she is determined to not go down without a fight. For that reason, she has spent the past year training and preparing for January 21. Should the worse take place, Charlie knows who she wants to investigate her own death — Detective D.D. Warren.

In her line of work, D.D. has seen and heard a lot of things, but even this seasoned detective is surprised when she hears Charlie’s story after spotting her at a crime scene. At first, D.D. isn’t sure what to believe, but when evidence seems to tie Charlene to several crimes, the detective is certain of one thing. She is sure that Charlie is in the middle of something and is resolved to find out what.

Packed with heart-pounding intrigue, Catch Me is one novel that mystery and suspense fans won’t want to miss. Lisa Gardner creates a world so gripping that it will suck the reader in as the clock steadily counts down the hours until that fateful day. In a story where one doesn’t know who to trust, the reader will feel the walls closing in as an intelligent and unknown killer masterfully isolates Charlie, taking away anything that can protect her.

Catch Me is definitely a nerve-wracking plot that will keep the reader on edge. The author has found the perfect balance, knowing how to make one’s heart speed up without pushing it to the point of discomfort. While this is not the first story with Detective D.D. Warren, I didn’t feel like I missed any crucial information even though I hadn’t read the others. I will definitely be on the lookout for more of Gardner’s novels.
