See the Cover for Lisa Gardner’s Next Novel, ‘When You See Me’


On January 28th, 2020, Detective D. D. Warren returns in When You See Me, the latest thriller from #1 bestselling author Lisa Gardner. 

Everything is coming full circle. Back in her 2016 novel Find Her, Gardner introduced Flora Dane—the once carefree college student who was kidnapped while on spring break and subsequently held for 472 days by her captor—who crossed paths with D.D. Warren and flashed immediate chemistry on the page with the longtime detective. An instant fan-favorite, Flora returned in both Look For Me (2018) and Never Tell (2019).

Now, both Warren and Flora are set to return once again When You See Me, the 11th book in Gardner’s Detective series, and this time around, they’ll share the spotlight with FBI Profiler Pierce Quincy, who first appeared in the 1997 novel The Perfect Husband. In fact, in her latest thriller, Warren and Quincy will head up an FBI task force designed to follow the digital clues left behind by a now-deceased serial killer. 

Check out the official plot details below.

When You see me.jpg#1 New York Times bestselling author Lisa Gardner unites three of her most beloved characters–Detective D. D. Warren, Flora Dane, and Kimberly Quincy–in a twisty new thriller, as they investigate a mysterious murder from the past . . . that points to a dangerous and chilling present-day crime.

FBI Special Agent Kimberly Quincy and Sergeant Detective D D Warren have built a task force to follow the digital bread crumbs left behind by deceased serial kidnapper Jacob Ness. When a disturbing piece of evidence is discovered in the hills of Georgia, they bring Flora Dane and true-crime savant Keith Edgar to a small town where something seems to be deeply wrong. What at first looks like a Gothic eeriness soon hardens into something much more sinister . . . and they discover that for all the evil Jacob committed while alive, his worst secret is still to be revealed. Quincy and DD must summon their considerable skills and experience to crack the most disturbing case of their careers–and Flora must face her own past directly in the hope of saving others.


Lisa Gardner is the #1 New York Times bestselling author of twenty suspense novels, including The Neighbor, which won Thriller of the Year from the International Thriller Writers. An avid hiker, traveler and cribbage player, she lives in the mountains of New Hampshire with her family.
