Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly

In bestseller Gardner's engaging if highly disturbing 10th thriller, Delilah Rose is a Georgia prostitute familiar with pregnant FBI Special Agent Kimberly Quincy ("beautiful, brainy, and pedigreed") through Kimberly's well-publicized nabbing of the Eco-Killer in The Killing Hour(2003). Delilah asks the detective to investigate her friend Ginny Jones's possible abduction by a creepy-crawly john who calls himself Dinchara, an anagram of "arachnid." Delilah, however, turns out not to be who she claims she is, and her ties to the spider-obsessed killer are more complicated than she'll admit. As the missing persons count rises, some readers may have trouble keeping track of the time sequence amid the shifting points-of-view. Still, Gardner delivers a satisfying resolution in line with what her fans have come to expect: a suspenseful freak show wrapped up with a neatly tied bow. (July)

“A spider-obsessed killer is hunting Atlanta prostitutes…. He’s seriously scary and the flashbacks to his abusive past achieve a ripped-from-the-headlines authenticity.”—Entertainment Weekly

" Haunting.... Gardner has consistently delivered entertaining and suspenseful novels in recent years, but she's gone one better with Say Goodbye, perhaps her best book yet."—Chicago Sun-Times

    Say Goodbye

    This is a really great read. Yes it is a brutal and disturbing read, but don't listen to people who say don't read Say Goodbye because the child abuse is so detailed. Children are abused in everyway everyday. I am happy to know that Lisa Gardner isn't afraid to remind her readers that child abuse is a real problem. So if you start to read this book and you put it down because this book goes against your morals then you are just basically turning your cheek the other way on a very serious problem. Don't be afraid to read this book because its disturbing. It should be diturbing. It should make you want to reach out to children who are abused. I loved this book it brings out everything people try to sweep under the rug.

    Lisa's best yet!

    I have read and own all of Lisa's books. I recommend them all the time, and give them for gifts frequently. "Say Goodbye" was the most thrill packed so far and I loved all the plot twists. I wish Lisa could write a book a month!

    Mentally Disturbing

    I want to start by saying I love Lisa Gardner and all of her books...except this one. It would have been a great book had it not been for the very small child getting raped over and over again. This is a very hard book to read if you have kids or love kids. It was very disturbing. I could not get the mental images out of my head and couldn't sleep. It was horrible. I would not recommend this book to anyone, however I would gladly recommend any one of her other books which are fabulous. She is a great writer, but this was too much for me.

    The Tale of the Spider

    I am not one to read mysteries but I was intrigued with this one. It was given to me as a Christmas gift so I had to give it a try. It does have some gory parts to it but that can be skipped over and not change the view of the plot. I too had some bad dreams during the time I was reading the book. I assumed the dreams were caused by the things I read. Nevertheless, I am glad I read the novel. It was exciting and was well written.

    AWESOME!

    This book has got to be one of my most favorite books of all times. Get this I am terribly affraid of spiders too. When I was reading the reviews about this book before I read it, as I often do; I saw that soemone had mentioned that "if you don't like spiders, don't read this book". Well it is true in a way. I did have nightmares while reading this book particularly about spiders....eww! This book didn't change how scared I am about them but it did however give me respect for them. The plot was very thought out and well planned the only thing is in the end a lot happens at once and I had to go back and re-read some parts to make sure what I read I understood. Lisa has become my new favorite author and I am trying to read more of her books now.

    If you want a great thriller pick this one up, you'll love it!

    Creepy!!

    This book does have a disturbing story. It is however a book for adults and if one does not understand should not read. It is in my opinion one of her best books. I am not some awful person that has no children. I do have children, but this is just a story. Maybe people need to read things like this to remind them that the world is not a perfect place and people who suspect or know of things should report it instead of wanting to get involved but yet judge everyone else.

    Very Disturbing

    I have read several other books by Lisa Gardner and have enjoyed them all. This one, however, was extremely disturbing. Like a previous reviewer, I had to stop reading this one. Reading of child rape and imprisonment is not my idea of an enjoyable book.

    Gardner's best ever

    Creepy, crawly is the description of this novel and an edge of your seat page turner. Not for the faint of heart nor those who fear spiders. By the middle of this book, I still wasn't sure who was the real killer. I'm glad to see Quincy made it into the storyline, he and Rainie always make for an exciting story. Very exciting.

    Another excellent read.

    I enjoyed SAY GOODBYE by Lisa Gardner very much. Yes, it was disturbing and even creepy. But Gardner delivered another great one. I highly recommend it. I now finished the FBI Profiler series and liked them all.

    Good,but not great.

    Say Goodbye's plot is good,but it's not Lisa Gardner's best novel. The book doesn't take place in Boston,it's not nearly as suspenseful as her latest book,The Neighbor. While I give it a five in all rating categories,it's not the best novel she's written.

    "Every Goodbye Makes The Next Hello Closer"

    An arrested prostitute makes it known that she has info for Special Agent Kimberly Quincy of the FBI. Delilah Rose tells her that a john is taking street prostitutes and subjecting them to poisonous spiders and other dangerous activities. Her friend Ginny has disappeared and she's worrite. She tells Kim that when he put a black widow spider on her, the man only let her live when she didn't show fear and scream.

    Kimberly's associate Sal Martingnetti also is concerned about prostitutes. Two times recently he has had the driver's licenses of three women placed inside the windshield of his car. All the licenses were of prostitutes. They have all vanished but no bodies have been found so it's difficult to get his superiors to permit him to mount an investigation. Dispite being five months pregnant, Kim agrees too help him.

    One night they follow Delilah to a street where they know Ginny's boyfriend was murdered. When they confront Delilah, she admits that she is really Ginny. She also states that the man she refers to as Dinchara, a play on the word arachnid because of his fetish with spiders.

    Sal and Kim want to find a way to get Ginny to take them to Dinchara and get enough evidence to convict him of his crimes. Then they find out that Dinchara has a teenage boy helping him and seems to be grooming a younger boy to do the same. Now the mission is to catch Dinchara and rescue the boys.

    The author knows suspense and has given her readers a story that will mesmerize them until the end. She has an original plot and her characters are well described. Dinchara is not only evil by himself but even more so when he gets children to help him in his crimes.

    A well done novel that will keep Gardiner's fans coming back for more.

    Great book!

    Great book. Skips around some. Almost every chapter is from a different point of view, but it all comes to a GREAT and shocking ending. If you truly hate spiders it is going to be a tough book to get though. Totally worth the read though.

    This was her best book yet. I couldn't put it down and read it in one day. The plot was great and kept you guessing who the serial killer really was. A very trick ending from a terrific writer.

    entertaining FBI thriller

    FBI Special Agent Kimberly Quincy became somewhat famous for her capture of the infamous Eco-Killer (see The Killing Hour). Thus Atlanta hooker Delilah Rose turns to her with a story that seems more like fiction. Delilah insists that a John calling himself Dinchara is abducting prostitutes. She fears Dinchara, who¿s allegedly obsessed with spiders as evident by the reverse spelling of his moniker, has kidnapped her best friend Ginny Jones. --- Although pregnant and preferring to ignore the prostitute anyway as there is no evidence that a crime was committed , Kimberly cannot guilt reminds her that her mom and sister were victims of a serial killer. Her inquiries lead to no corpses, more prostitutes missing, and the apparent connection between Delilah and Dinchara that the hooker never mentioned during her interviews Kimberly even begins to wonder if there is such a killer as no solid proof has surfaced. --- SAY GOODBYE is an entertaining FBI thriller in which the switching veiwpoints make for a terrific tale that showcases the dark Atlanta underground (not the site). Kimberly wonders if a crime has been committed as nothing surfaces to affirm that although ironically the audience knows early on whether one occurred. Readers will appreciate this fine tale in which the heroine ponders whether she might be the fly to Dinchara the spider as nothing seems to come together on the ¿Spideyman¿ case. --- Harriet Klausner
