The Perfect Husband by Lisa Gardner

The Perfect Husband: A NovelPublication Date: July 27th 2004
Pages: 432
Genre: Thriller/suspense
My Rating:

Summary: (Goodreads) Jim Beckett was everything she'd ever dreamed of in a man and a husband. But two years after Tess married the decorated cop and bore his child, she helped put him behind bars for savagely murdering 10 women. Even locked up in a maximum security prison, he vowed he would come after her and make her pay. Now the cunning killer has escaped--and the most dangerous and terrifying game of all is about to begin.

My Thoughts: I picked this book up at my local used  book store a few months ago after I had read my first "newer" Lisa Gardner book. I had only read books from her DD Warren series that deals with the book in mainly a police perspective. This book is different from that and I liked it. This book mainly deals from either Tess's point on view or the mercenaries view, J.T. We get to see some from Jim Beckett's point of view also, which was nice.  This book was good. It was an easy read. I think in some ways it was a bit too predictable, however it still reeled you in and  had you on the edge of your seat waiting for the psychopath Jim Beckett to be caught. Gardner did an awesome job with this character. You can tell she really did her research. This is another one of those books, where if too much is told, then it will ruin the book. If thriller is your genre and you are a Lisa Gardner fa, check out the local used books stores for this one. You won't be sorry.
