TheGuy Who Died Twice – Lisa Gardner

cover152532-medium

I was fortunate to receive this book as an Advance Reader Copy from Netgalley, in exchange for an objective review.
I have long been a fan of Lisa Gardner and the DD Warren series, so I was ecstatic to see this new book – I was quite surprised to see it was a novella – I had been hoping for a full length DD Warren special, but this who-dun-it, was still a lot of fun to read!

It starts off when a man stops by the police station to report his own murder, because he was convinced he was dead. Despite DD and the other Detectives explaining to him that he was very much alive, he remained insistent that this was not the case. After a bit of research, he was released into the care of his family. Then a couple of hours later, they receive a call from the patient’s wife, as her husband has been found dead in bed – with a knife in his back.

A man of family wealth, the victim had been ensconsed in a large home with several caretakers also on the premises, including the chef, the manservant, the gardener, the maid, the driver, and the doctor, along with the victim’s wife. As DD interviews each individual, each story is the same, the victim was generous, respected and loved by his staff. But some inconsistencies come to light…and DD must use her wits to determine who the killer really is…

A quick read from a fabulous author!! Highly recommend!! I can’t wait for more short stories (and long) in the DD Warren series!!

Hi there! I am Mel and I love to read!! My favorite genres are typically mystery/thriller, adventure/suspense and occasionally chick lit/romance stories (when the mystery/thrillers get to be too much, which isn't too often!) I have just started to write reviews for Amazon, Goodreads and this blog, although I am a novice to blogging, so THIS is a work in progress - as you can see the reviews are numerous and the true blogs are few - I'll hopefully be improving on that as time goes on!! I'm looking to network, give some newer authors some exposure and to perhaps explore myself a bit in this whole process!! I am a critical care turned CDI nurse, recently transplanted to coastal Florida, from New England. (Would love to assist with medical/hospital verbiage/scenes for authors!) I love a great cup (or pot) of coffee, day trips, visiting state parks and other nature made places, and exploring/photographing wildlife. And birds...I am a HUGE bird/nature nerd!! Thanks for stopping by! :)
