Book Spotlight - Never Tell by Lisa Gardner

Last February, I read Never Tell by Lisa Gardner, the latest book in her Detective D.D. Warren series, when it was first released in hardcover, and I loved it! You can find my thoughts on the book here. On August 6th the book is being released in trade paperback and to celebrate, I am helping the publishers get the word out. 

Are you a fan of this series? If not, now's the perfect time to jump in. Never Tell in its trade paperback format will be the beach bag accessory of the summer. It's a perfect introduction to Lisa Gardner for new readers and an exciting addition for dedicated fans. And for those dedicated fans, the next book in this series, When You See Me, will be out in early 2020 featuring some favorite returning characters. And most exciting...there is an excerpt of the upcoming book included in the trade paperback!!!



Title: Never Tell
Author: Lisa Gardner
Series: Detective D.D. Warren, #10
Published: August 2019, Dutton
Format: Trade Paperback, 432 pages

Summary: 
#1 New York Times bestseller Lisa Gardner returns with an unpredictable thriller that puts fan favorites D. D. Warren and Flora Dane on a shocking new case that begins with a vicious murder and gets darker from there.

A man is dead, shot three times in his home office. But his computer has been shot twelve times, and when the cops arrive, his pregnant wife is holding the gun.

D. D. Warren arrives on the scene and recognizes the woman--Evie Carter--from a case many years back. Evie's father was killed in a shooting that was ruled an accident. But for D.D., two coincidental murders is too many.

Flora Dane sees the murder of Conrad Carter on the TV news and immediately knows his face. She remembers a night when she was still a victim--a hostage--and her captor knew this man. Overcome with guilt that she never tracked him down, Flora is now determined to learn the truth of Conrad's murder.

But D.D. and Flora are about to discover that in this case the truth is a devilishly elusive thing. As layer by layer they peel away the half-truths and outright lies, they wonder: How many secrets can one family have?



Praise for Never Tell

“Gardner knows how to weave a deeply moving and psychological thriller that pulls no punches in its authenticity. She is one of the masters when it comes to crime fiction. Fans of her novels will consider this one of her best, and newcomers will be in awe of the compelling story and unpredictability of the proceedings.”—Associated Press

 “This is easily Gardner’s most ambitious, complex tale ever, a shattering emotional journey that’s utterly relentless in pacing and suspense. Tell everyone that Never Tell is an early candidate for the best thriller of 2019.”—Providence Journal

 “Nailbiting....Gardner’s commendable storytelling will keep fans eagerly waiting for the next outing for D.D. and Flora.”Publishers Weekly

 “If you’re into secrets, lies, Gardner’s amazing words, or simply an action-packed mystery that does leave you breathless, this is the one for you! It is so good, it almost feels like the author sat down and created a Holiday gift for her fans around the globe.”Suspense Magazine

 “Never Tell is another nail-biting page-turner from Lisa Gardner, the undisputed queen of suspense, and the kind of thriller that’ll stay with readers weeks after turning the final page.”—The Real Book Spy

 “Never Tell is raw, visceral, emotional, the sentences come at you like MP5 rounds, and features three incredible characters, D.D., Flora and Evie, who, alone, could carry any narrative. Together, they create a tsunami of a thriller. This may well be Gardner’s best work, and that is saying something.”David Baldacci

“Lisa Gardner has outdone herself with this powerful novel about three women, two murders, and uncountable secrets! From its stunning opening to its last thrilling page, Never Tell will captivate, surprise, and satisfy you.”—Lisa Scottoline
