Detective D. D. Warren has four days to stop a killer in this "shocking...'must read'"* from #1 New York Times bestselling author Lisa Gardner--one of Library Journal 's Best Thrillers of the Year.

Charlene Grant believes she is going to die. For the past few years, her childhood friends have been murdered one by one. Same day. Same time. Now she's the last of her friends alive, and she's counting down the final four days of her life until January 21st.

Charlene doesn't plan on going down without a fight. She has taken up boxing, shooting, and running. She also wants Boston's top homicide detective, D. D. Warren, to handle the investigation.

But as D. D. delves deeper into the case, she starts to question the woman's story. Instinct tells her that Charlene may not be in any danger at all. If that's true, the woman must have a secret--one so terrifying that it alone could be the greatest threat of all.

Definitely a page turner. Finishing a 400 page book in two days when you can only read after the kids are in bed takes some doing! :-)

Still not a fan of the current trend to jump back and forth between first person and third person narrators but, other than that, this was a good suspenseful mystery.

Still catching up on my Lisa Gardner series slowly but surely. This is #6 in the D.D. Warren series. I like how she is evolving and we are starting to see a little softer side of her. This was a good, fast paced book. Interesting plot of a woman trying to prepare for and prevent her own murder on a specific date. 2 mysteries to be solved plus an unreliable narrator made it more fun and harder to figure out "who done it."

Extremely exciting and suspenseful! I've read quite a number of Lisa Gardner's mysteries and she never disappoints. Detective DD Warren is a pretty hard, driven character, but she softens a bit in this book and that was nice to see. As in all of her books, there is a huge twist at the end.

Detective story with a twist.

I love Lisa Gardner's books! All of them are so interesting and kept me reading from cover to cover. They have so many details and are researched so well. I applaud her for creating the characters with such a detail and truth to their role in the plot. The amazing portrayal of where it all takes place makes me feel like I'm there observing from the street corner or forest trail or hospital room. I can't wait for another great story. Thank you Lisa for your amazing creative work.

Good mystery except for a drawn out, disappointing ending. It appears the author was emulating The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo which is a shame, because this is much the better book. The "Girl" books are comic books without pictures where as Catch Me is an intelligent, well written story until the last few pages.

My first Lisa Gardner book. It was a little slow for me at the start until understood the back story. Satisfactory ending with the twist.

Another excellent book by Gardner. An exciting plot and a real page-turner. Couldn't put it down!
