Overview

In Lisa Gardner’s first-ever short story following thirteen bestselling novels, The 7th Month takes readers between the books and into a day in the life of Boston Detective D. D. Warren.In her seventh month of pregnancy, D.D. should be taking it easy. Instead, she accepts a small consulting role on the set of a serial killer film shooting in Boston. D.D. figures she’ll be useful to someone for at least one night, serving as a police expert and making a little extra money in the bargain.It seems like a simple task—until the previous film consultant, a former Boston cop, is found beaten to death. Suddenly D.D.’s date with Hollywood gets serious. Extremely pregnant, on the trail of a killer, and surrounded by a hundred and four murder suspects in the middle of a graveyard, D.D. must quickly unravel a tangled web of lies. As another cast member is attacked, D.D. realizes that like it or not, her priorities have changed—and her last desperate hope is that she can catch a killer before she and her unborn baby face mortal danger.Packed with the suspenseful storytelling that has turned Gardner’s novels into New York Times bestsellers, The 7th Month reveals new insights into a beloved series heroine.Includes an exclusive early look at Catch Me, coming February 7, 2012.

    Disappointment

    I anxiously awaited a preorder of this book. Thinking it would be a read worthwhile. Have you ever read a book where everyone knows what happens during the first few pages? This book was only 61 pages and a 10 page preview of the authors next book. In 61 pages they found the killer, DD had a baby and everyone lived happily ever after. I feel cheated. Too bad for me.

    DON'T BOTHER

    THIS IS THE MOST INANE STORY I EVER READ. NORMALLY GARDNER WRITES AT LEAST AN EXCITING BOOK, BUT THIS WASN'T ONE OF THEM. I HAVE DELETED IT FROM MY HOOK SINCE I WOULD NEVER READ IT AGAIN AND I'M SORRY I WASTED MY TIME READING IT THE FIRST TIME....

    Boring and far fetched

    As a fan if Lisa Gardner's stories , I was disappointed with this purchase. The story falls flat and the ending is contrived.

    most of you are morons.

    how are you going to give it a terrible rating because YOU failed to realize that it was a short story?! hellooooo, READ the INFO!
    "In Lisa Gardner’s first-ever short story..." i thought that was pretty self explanatory for everyone. apparently i give people too much credit.

    Disappointing

    VERY short book without time to develop plot much. Wish I would have realized it was so short before purchasing. Normally I love Lisa Gardner's books.

    Great Short story

    Loved it! Good, quick mystery. Not sure what to make of the last line of the book though. Guess I'll have to wait for Catch Me to find out.

    I liked it. This was straight to the point short story on more personal level. Lisa Gardener is a fantastic writer and the 7th month was just as good as her other books.

    DON'T MISS DETECTIVE WARREN'S 7TH MONTH!!!

    This e-book did EXACTLY what it was supposed to do. It completely bridged the gap between "Love you more" and "Catch Me" while bringing our beloved character Detective D.D. Warren into a new phase of her life. As with all of Lisa Gardner books, I HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!!
