Pain has a flavor. The question is, what does it taste like to you.

Boston’s exclusive Back Bay neighborhood, a gorgeous brownstone on a tree-lined street. A great marriage. A family who seemed to be admired and loved by all.

In the first chapter, three masked men attack and abduct them. When investigator Tessa Leoni arrives on the crime scene, the family has vanished without a trace—no witnesses, no ransom demands, no motive. Just a million tiny pieces of Taser confetti. Racing against the clock to locate the family, Tessa and Detective Wyatt team up, with the FBI, to uncover the family’s deepest secrets and a complex web of betrayal and big business. Who did it? Why did they do it? What happened to the family?

This is the truth: Love, safety, family…it’s all touch and go.

Gardner’s brilliant novel is a thriller as thrillers should be written. Tense and highly suspenseful, her latest features a delightfully fresh plot, a variety of unexpected twists and some great surprises. With the search to save this family and a family under immense pressure–this story is also definitely emotionally charged and compelling. Very engaging writing and wonderful, intriguing characters. (Loved the dynamic between Tessa and Wyatt.) Gardner is a suspense maestro. Unputdownable, fast-paced, utterly riveting. And a spectacular conclusion!

Lisa Gardner is the New York Times best-selling author of fourteen novels, including the D.D. Warren series: Catch Me, Love You More, Live to Tell, The Neighbor, Hide, and Alone. Her latest book, TOUCH & GO,  comes out February 5th, 2013, bringing back Tessa Leoni, a character who was first introduced in the book, Love You More.
