One question, a split-second decision, and Brian Darby lies dead on the kitchen floor. His wife, state police trooper Tessa Leoni, claims to have shot him in self-defense, and bears the bruises to back up her tale. For veteran detective D. D. Warren it should be an open-and-shut case. But where is their six-year-old daughter?
As the homicide investigation ratchets into a frantic statewide search for a missing child, D. D. Warren must partner with former lover Bobby Dodge to break through the blue wall of police brotherhood, seeking to understand the inner workings of a trooper's mind while also unearthing family secrets. Would a trained police officer truly shoot her own husband? And would a mother harm her own child?
. . . TO SAVE HER?
For Tessa Leoni, the worst has not yet happened. She is walking a tightrope, with nowhere to turn, no one to trust, as the clock ticks down to a terrifying deadline. She has one goal in sight, and she will use every ounce of her training, every trick at her disposal, to do what must be done. No sacrifice is too great, no action unthinkable. A mother knows who she loves. And all others will be made to pay.

This was an interesting police procedural, but it didn't grip me as it did others. Even though most of the loose ends were cleverly tied together, there were a few holes in the story, and certain events and outcomes seemed unrealistic. For those prone to pondering philosophical questions (e.g., how far might I go to protect my child? Do the ends sometimes justify the ruthless means?), there's plenty of fodder here for deliberation.

The premise of this novel hooked me from the start. This is the first of Gardner's novels that I've read, and I'll definitely read more. Detective D.D. Warren is tough but also believable, and I enjoy her tough language. The story line was suspenseful and kept me guessing. I found it inventive but not entirely believable at times. The narrator of this audiobook was quite good.

The audio version is a bit slow to start but once u are in it it is hard to not listen to see what happens next.
The mystery kept me guessing for most of the dics.
