Alone . . . Massachusetts State Trooper Bobby Dodge watches a tense hostage standoff unfold through the scope of his sniper rifle. Just across the street, in wealthy Back Bay, Boston, an armed man has barricaded himself with his wife and child. The manís finger tightens on the trigger and Dodge has only a split second to react . . . and forever pay the consequences.

Alone . . . thatís where the nightmare began for cool, beautiful, and dangerously sexy Catherine Rose Gagnon. Twenty-five years ago, she was buried underground during a month-long nightmare of abduction and abuse. Now her husband has just been killed. Her father-in-law, the powerful Judge Gagnon, blames Catherine for his sonís death . . . and for the series of unexplained illnesses that have sent her own young son repeatedly to the hospital.

Alone . . . a madman survived solitary confinement in a maximum security prison where heíd done hard time for the most sadistic of crimes. Now he walks the streets a free man, invisible, anonymous . . . and filled with an unquenchable rage for vengeance. What brings them together is a moment of violenceóbut what connects them is a passion far deeper and much more dangerous. For a killer is loose whoís woven such an intricate web of evil that no one is above suspicion, no one is beyond harm, and no one will see death coming until it has them cornered, helpless, and alone.

User Review  - Jessica - Goodreads

I didn't LOVE it, but I liked it enough to pick up the 2nd book in the Series. I am almost finished with Hide (DD Warrent #2) and I must encourage anyone who reads Alone, to keep going. It's much better, very interesting and more character development. Read full review
