Summary

Random House presents the audiobook edition of Never Tell by Lisa Gardner.

Detective DD Warren and Flora Dane must work together to establish what really happened in an apparently open-and-closed murder case and whether the perpetrator is innocent - or guilty as charged. An enthralling, nail-biting thriller by the queen of domestic suspense.

At first, it seems an ordinary house in an upscale part of Boston. Lawn, white picket fence, car out front, front door opened just a crack.... 

Inside a man lies dead. Crimson splatters over the walls, pools on the floor. And on the stairs, a young woman waits. Covered in blood, she is holding a gun.

An open-and shut-case, Detective DD Warren thinks when she arrives at the house, particularly as when she last saw the suspect, Evie, she had just shot her own father.

That time the killing had been an accident. 

This time it seems horribly intentional. But is it? 

Killer or victim? Detective DD Warren must race to find out what has really been going on behind closed doors....

Lots of twists

Great story unravelling 16 years of mid truths, lies, hidden secrets
Thought I'd be annoyed at why the immediate reason of the shooting wasn't clear, (surely the police investigation would get straight to it?) however, the way the story here and developed and dipped into the past kept me wondering who? why?, how? for much longer than I thought possible.
The ending when it comes, doesn't disappoint.

A brilliant ‘who done it’

This is my first Lisa Gardner book and it certainly will not be the last. It was a great story which had strong characters and lots of twists and turns. I read lots of reviews that give the story line but I suggest, with this book, just give it go, you will not be disappointed!

A good story

I enjoyed this book but I found the narration confusing at times. There wasn't enough differentiation between the 3 female characters which got in the way of my comprehension at times.

A great story for a great price whilst on deal

Intriguing book although I wasn't too fond of the ending. Never tells story pulls you in more and more with the 3 protagonists telling there story as they see it. this gives more insight to the story and allows the listener to gather there thoughts from 3 perspectives.

Keeps you guessing and interested

3 women with individual histories that would make most of us go running for the hills but a story to keep us hooked. I was totally absorbed and felt ended too soon.

Loved the narrator and descriptiveness of this book

I often find it difficult to listen to books with American narrator because with crime thrillers, the narrator usually sounds like a demonic “Elliot Ness” but this lady is a wonderful narrator and the storyline keeps you guessing right to the last few chapters. I’m a fan of this genre and this book is descriptive and well written. Whilst not the style that I would usually listen to, I enjoyed it and will be listening to another from this author.
