From the Publisher
“Gardner knows how to weave a deeply moving and psychological thriller that pulls no punches in its authenticity. She is one of the masters when it comes to crime fiction. Fans of her novels will consider this one of her best, and newcomers will be in awe of the compelling story and unpredictability of the proceedings.”—Associated Press
“This is easily Gardner’s most ambitious, complex tale ever, a shattering emotional journey that’s utterly relentless in pacing and suspense. Tell everyone that Never Tell is an early candidate for the best thriller of 2019.”—Providence Journal
“Nailbiting....Gardner’s commendable storytelling will keep fans eagerly waiting for the next outing for D.D. and Flora.”—Publishers Weekly
“If you’re into secrets, lies, Gardner’s amazing words, or simply an action-packed mystery that does leave you breathless, this is the one for you! It is so good, it almost feels like the author sat down and created a Holiday gift for her fans around the globe.”—Suspense Magazine
“Never Tell is another nail-biting page-turner from Lisa Gardner, the undisputed queen of suspense, and the kind of thriller that’ll stay with readers weeks after turning the final page.”—The Real Book Spy
“Never Tell is raw, visceral, emotional, the sentences come at you like MP5 rounds, and features three incredible characters, D.D., Flora and Evie, who, alone, could carry any narrative. Together, they create a tsunami of a thriller. This may well be Gardner’s best work, and that is saying something.”—David Baldacci
“Lisa Gardner has outdone herself with this powerful novel about three women, two murders, and uncountable secrets! From its stunning opening to its last thrilling page, Never Tell will captivate, surprise, and satisfy you.”—Lisa Scottoline
“Never Tell shocks the system like ten thousand volts. D.D. Warren’s most gripping case yet. Brace yourself, gulp down a deep breath, and dive in.”—A.J. Finn

A woman who killed her father in a shotgun accident at the age of
16 and was considered not guilty of murder, now 16 yrs later, appears to have killed her husband
in another shooting incident. Now this woman, Evie, says she was not the one who killed her father.
She now claims she and her mother used that cover story to preserve the
image of her father from having committed suicide. So who killed her father?
Did she kill her father? Has she now killed her husband?
And who was her husband? On the surface he was a very personable window
salesman, but he has no past, no relatives and never gets beyond superficial
relationships with people. After his death, it turns out he has hidden cash
and phony driver’s licenses. A mystery man. Perhaps a bad man.
DD Warren has a confidential informant, Flora Dane. Flora was abducted
and held in sexual bondage by a long distance truck driver for 472 days. Although
she was eventually freed by the FBI, her head is not right. She is seriously damaged
psychologically. The only way she can keep going is by helping other people
struggling to overcome awful experiences. Not a happy life, but it keeps her
sane - for the most part.
DD Warren finds Flora helpful as a CI, but she also knows Flora is a loner,
somewhat of a vigilante and reckless at times. But Flora is very useful and DD
cannot just ignore her. Flora is becoming an important figure in this series.
Then there is Kimberly Quincy, the FBI agent who led the raid that freed
Flora, who is once again involved in Flora’s case because there were apparently
other women who were abducted/killed by Jacob Ness, the man who held
Flora in bondage. This is still another thread in this complex story.
NEVER TELL is complicated and sordid. But how can you not finish a story so
compelling with so many intriguing subplots?
Lisa Gardner is outstanding.
This book kept my interest focused on the book from first page to last. The characters in this story are written to be real people and that's sometimes a hard thing for authors to do. The information necessary to provide the solution to the crimes is revealed in natural ways so that it feels as if someone is actually finding the information in real time. The investigative forays into the dark web were fascinating to me because I have absolutely no idea of how those things work. Lisa Gardner is doing a masterful job of handling the characterization of Flora Dane. Her character could go oh, so very wrong, but Gardner hasn't let that happen. I'm already looking forward to the next book in the series.
Many thanks to NetGalley and Penguin Group Dutton for an eGalley of this novel.
