Alone is entertaining story but a predictable mystery. I enjoyed reading a story set in Boson. Bobby Dodge is a sympathetic main character, as is the secondary character Catherine Rose Gagnon. I didn't really buy the extent of the power one of the villain exercised. The narrator Anna Fields does not get the Boston accents right but otherwise does an OK job. I probably will check another title by Gardner. ( )

In one word: disappointing.
I could not identify with either of the main characters.
While the plot starts out well enough, there is no build up of suspense and the twists and turns become quite intricate. Even though the motive is ultimately quite original and astounding, the plot threads fail to come together and the story feels unresolved. ( )

Nothing special or unusual in the plot, but the author is good at character development. That kept me reading to the end despite the feeling of having heard the story before...several times, by several authors. ( )

D. D. Warren is arrogant, has a nasty personality; easy to dislike. ( )

I loved this book. From the moment I read the opening events, I was hooked on the idea of finding out exactly what was going on. The story takes a lot of twists and turns, ultimately ending in an exciting and gripping conclusion. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0553584537, Mass Market Paperback)

Alone . . . Massachusetts State Trooper Bobby Dodge watches a tense hostage standoff unfold through the scope of his sniper rifle. Just across the street, in wealthy Back Bay, Boston, an armed man has barricaded himself with his wife and child. The man’s finger tightens on the trigger and Dodge has only a split second to react . . . and forever pay the consequences.

Alone . . . that’s where the nightmare began for cool, beautiful, and dangerously sexy Catherine Rose Gagnon. Twenty-five years ago, she was buried underground during a month-long nightmare of abduction and abuse. Now her husband has just been killed. Her father-in-law, the powerful Judge Gagnon, blames Catherine for his son’s death . . . and for the series of unexplained illnesses that have sent her own young son repeatedly to the hospital.

Alone . . . a madman survived solitary confinement in a maximum security prison where he’d done hard time for the most sadistic of crimes. Now he walks the streets a free man, invisible, anonymous . . . and filled with an unquenchable rage for vengeance. What brings them together is a moment of violence—but what connects them is a passion far deeper and much more dangerous. For a killer is loose who’s woven such an intricate web of evil that no one is above suspicion, no one is beyond harm, and no one will see death coming until it has them cornered, helpless, and alone.
