Although this isn't one of Gardner's famed D.D. Warren novels, fans of hers will be delighted that she does make an appearance. Still recovering from past injuries, D.D.'s future as a cop still hangs in the balance. Another recurring character, Tessa Leoni, plays a more prominent role in this novel. Aside from helping during the current investigation, her past is also still haunting her. Tessa is one of those great ambiguous characters that Gardner is so good at. While her story has already been told, it's definitely far from over. I will be waiting with bated breath to see what the future holds for her regarding her own case, and also where she and Wyatt end up.
As with all of Gardner's novels, I recommend this for readers of thrillers and mysteries who love a good twist and turn. Gardner provides many and just when you think you've figured it out, she throws in some more. Despite some recurring characters, most of these novels can stand alone, but I recommend reading previous character-labeled novels just to get the full scope and get any missing backstory.
