About the Author

Lisa Gardner sold her first novel when she was just 20 years old. In 1993 she graduated magna cum laude from the University of Pennsylvania with a degree in international relations. She lives in New Hampshire.


In The Perfect Husband (Bantam. 1998. ISBN 978-0-553-57680-1. pap. $7.99), Lisa Gardner's fictional take on Ted Bundy, an extremely charming murderer responsible for the deaths of at least 30 women, Tess Williams meets and marries the man of her dreams but soon discovers he is a serial killer. When he breaks out of prison, Tess hires an ex-marine to train her for a final, bloody confrontation. Copyright 2007 Reed Business Information.

Lisa Baumgartner makes her debut as a writer of romantic suspense under the name of Lisa Gardner with this sexy and smooth-talking first. The villain, Jim Beckett, cuts off the fingers of his victims with a dull Swiss Army knife‘before he bats their brains out with a Louisville slugger. His poor ex-wife, Tess, who helped to get him arrested, is on the run with her daughter because Jim has escaped from jail and vowed to cut the still-beating heart out of her chest. Tess offers retired mercenary and sometime drunk J.T. Dillon $100,000 if he will teach her how to defend herself. J.T., like the others of his ilk, has muscles of steel attached to viscera of mush. He takes up her cause and gives Tess her first orgasm‘psycho-killers apparently are not good lovers. In what might be termed the new genre of "grisly romance," Gardner delivers a streamlined bang-up addition to the oeuvre of Tami Hoag, Karen Robards, Elizabeth Powell and, these days, even Nora Roberts. (Dec.)
