Eral girl who self mutilates when any attention is given to her and Evan an ight year old boy who during fits threatens to kill his mother Whoo hoo I finally got to learn about the In the Shadow of the Crown (Queens of England, elusive Detective DD Warren or DD as she is known I started this series at number 3 and tracked back to read in order The books in this series by Lisa Gardner are an awesome set but funnilynough so far in this series I feel DD does take the back seat But she showed herself here and I really Bark enjoy her character She s a highly committed Detective Sergeant a hard boss a hard woman who really does have a soft centre and this book is where me meet that softer side That probably actually does help offset the dark storyline one that was highly researched I might add as we see a very dark side in the disturbing world of very damaged and mentally ill children I appreciated the author s note in ackno This was a pretty horrific case anntire family is murdered Pretty cut and dry at first but of course things are never as they appear in a Lisa Gardner mystery This is where the Alex and DD meet up for the first time an immediate attraction brewing DD is smitten once she finds out Alex can cook Good Italian food and wine is a sure way to DD s heart The audio version as a re read was fantastic I just love all the twist and turns of this story Danielle lives to tell her story Ok so DD did not annoy me as much as she did in the previous book The Neighbor but she still somehow manages to remain my least favorite character in her own series At least this time she doesn t focus on one suspect and try to make that person the killer no matter what However she still doesn t strike me as the sharpest knife in the drawer Her techniue for finding a killer seems to be That guy did it No wait she did it I had to shake my head at the fact that she seemed convinced On Such a Full Sea early on that on person old killed hisntire family despite the fact that the Hello, Hippo! Goodbye, Bird! evidence clearly ruled that person out on sheer physical merits I really liked Danielle the primary narrator of this book She is a nurse in a pediatric psych ward where through the novel we get to hear stories about children with behavorial disorders some of which do make the children incredibly violent I was also very affected by the narration of Victoria a mother of one of the kids It was just sad But just like in the previous book I was very satisfied with how the story wrapped and the fate of these charactersI really really dislike reading stories that deal in children in jeopardykidnappings molestationtc So far with this series it is two for two with this kind of storiy I do like how Gardner is able to create a compelling story and some really sympathetic characters with some great depth But if the stories continue to focus on molested children I may have to say goodbye to this seriesIt is also a shame that the titular main character just annoys the crap out of me I think one of my biggest problems with DD besides the fact that she doesn t seem to you know figure out stuff through investigation is that she doesn t seem to be in the job in order to seek justice for her victims She strikes me as a person who just likes to catch bad guys and show how big her balls are She s incredibly antagonistic when she is uestioning people Even people who her own Cannibal evidence proves are not likely to be involved in the crimeTruthfully I think A lot of my lack of warmth toward her could do with the fact that so far in the two books I ve read in this series the only time we spend in DD s head is to hear about 1 how prettyhotsexy she is 2 how much she loves toat and 3how desperate she is to get laid The most substantive time we get in characters heads are of the people who are the probable perps Gardner does such a good job with making th.
