    Unexpected!

    The Guy Who Died Twice is a very entertaining short story from established author, Lisa Gardner. Gardner reveals the story in a series of flashbacks, with the primary character, police detective D.D. Warren, relating the details of her most recent case to her husband. The entire story takes place in just one day. Detective D.D.Warren brags to her husband, a police crime scene analyst, that she has just solved the “strangest case”. Apparently, the couple has an ongoing competition for the strangest police case. The LaToile case is definitely far from routine and may deserve the title, “strangest”. Adam LaToile walks into his local police station and declares that he is dead. Of course, the detectives think Adam is delusional. Strangely enough, two hours later Detective Warren receives a phone call from Adam’s wife reporting that he is now, indeed, dead. Warren and her partner arrive at the LaToile home to find that Adam has been murdered. The home is well-secured, so everyone there, Mrs. LaToile, the household staff and Adam’s doctor, is a suspect. Detective Warren cracks the case through the process of elimination, but the twist that reveals the killer is unexpected. As a fan of Lisa Gardner, I expected and received a great read. The characters and plot are brilliantly developed in the short span of the story. I recommend this short story to all fans of a good mystery. Even readers that shy away from shorts will find this one worthy. I rate it 5 out of 5 stars. My thanks to Penguin Group Dutton and NetGalley for the opportunity to read an advance copy. However the opinions expressed in this review are 100% mine and mine alone.

    Light, quick and comical

    What a great short story! D.D. Warren tells her husband about the weirdest case of the day as they relax over wine. In flashbacks interspersed with the telling, the story of the man who came to the police department to report he was dead ends up dying is disclosed. It is written in a humorous and easy to read style. The characters are all fun and intriguing. Each of the suspects has a secret to hide. The book offers shades of the game of Clue. The mystery is solved in true Colombo fashion. I loved this book. I am typically not a fan of short stories or novellas but this one may change my mind. The writing is tight, quick and comical. The characters are well developed even in such a short time. Readers of Lisa Gardner books will get a fix of D.D. Warren until Never Can Tell is released. Others who are not familiar with this author will become fans after reading this gem. I received an ARC by NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. This in no way affects my opinion or ratings of this book.

    Excellent short story!

    A man walks into a police station insisting he has been murdered. With a record of mental issues, he is sent home. Less than nine hours later, he is stabbed to death in the Guy Who Died Twice. Detective D.D. Warren and her partner investigate the man’s murder. Arriving home that evening, D.D. walks her husband Alex, a police crime scene analyst, through the crime. Together, they solve the mystery. There are plenty of suspects, means and motives here. The Guy Who Died Twice is a fun chance to play armchair detective with only an hour or so time invested. This is an easy way to see if the D.D. Warren series is for you as it can be read as a standalone and clocks in at less than 90 pages. 4 stars! Thanks to Dutton Books and NetGalley for an advance copy in exchange for an honest review.

    Short story

    Thank you Netgalley, the publisher and Lisa Gardner. Short story which reminded me of the game Clue. D.D Warren is both investigating a murder and relaying to her husband at night the strangest case of the day. I love Lisa Gardner and I have read all her books. She never has disappointed me. Thank you again for a great read.
