The next police procedural series I decided to try was Lisa Gardner’s D.D. Warren series which begins with the book “Alone”. The funny thing about this series starter is that D.D. Is actually a minor character in the book.
The book follows the aftermath of a police sniper, Bobby Dodge, shooting a man during a tense hostage stand-off. The question of why he shot the man and if he was tricked into it take the entire book to resolve. This complex story kept me engaged throughout. The detailed plot moves along yet the twists and turns keep it from being easy to figure out – I am still not sure I have it all figured out after finishing it. I highly recommend this book if your are looking for an intricate mystery thriller.
