A rapist left an indelible mark on three women's lives. All three women hated him and wanted him dead. When he is murdered on his way to trial the police must figure out which of the three women murdered him.

This story had a complicated plot that was interesting and a bit of a stretch but entertaining anyway. There was a lot about the suffering of the women who were attacked by the rapist but it was mostly believable and drew me in. A number of surprising things happened which made the police urgently work to figure out what was going on. This was a good thriller with a lot of suspense. ( )

Jillian Hayes, Carol Rosen and Meg Pesaturo belong to "The Survivors Club," a group of three women living in Providence, Rhode Island, who meet regularly after having been victimized by the same rapist. Eddie Como, known as the College Hill Rapist, is about to face trial. He has claimed innocence from day one but nobody seems to be expecting anything other than a guilty verdict since his DNA was found at the scenes of the attacks. When Como is killed on his way to the courthouse by an unknown assassin, it's hard to see too many people being upset. When the assassin is killed minutes later it leaves two murders that need to be investigated.

The author introduces us to Detective Sergeant Roan Griffin, a state police officer back at work a year after dealing with the death of his wife and the loss of control at a crime scene. He doesn't know the three members of the Survivor's Club but considers them prime suspects in the murder of Eddie and the assassin.

Shortly after Eddie is killed, another rape occurs and the doctors recover Eddie's DNA from victim. Jillian teams up with Roan to investigate how this could happen. Eddie is dead so how can he have raped and killed another woman? How can a dead man, who had been assassinated earlier, leave DNA at a crime scene?

This is not a new Lisa Gardner book. Somehow I managed to miss this one a few years ago and am glad I was able to pick it up now. I thought it was a very suspenseful story and the plot races along incorporating many unexpected twists. It's an outstanding crime thriller and if you are a fan of Lisa Gardner you will really enjoy this one.

This is one of Lisa Gardner's "Stand-Alone" novels (I've read all the ones in the 2 big series she's written...*sob* ... I'll miss the characters!). It's the first stand-alone of hers I've read and I wasn't sure at first whether I'd like it, because I'd got so attached to the characters in the 2 series I'd read and had become accustomed to getting to know characters over a series of books.

Perhaps I therefore found this book slighly slower to get into, but once I got into it, I couldn't put it down! It has a great storyline that takes you along all the way to the end with lots of suspense in all the right places.

Another Lisa Gardner masterpiece! ( )
