This week librarian Lynn recommends Alone by Lisa Gardner. This page turner by the bestsellling author of the Killing Hour is a fast paced read filled with suspense and evil twists. A police sniper shooting is just the beginning of an unfolding series of crimes. The killer is loose and a widow has to face her fears from her own childhood abduction. The intricate plot culminates in a violent surprise ending. Recommended to those who are not afraid to be alone.
