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.


  • Worst Book Ever!

    By Angry in Arizona
    This book was a complete waste of time and money. Certainly is a 'short story' 53 pages!! Only 53! Don't get it unless you want to be disappointed.

    A simple read and fun to see familiar character DD "come even more to life" experiencing pregnancy.
  • Very good!

    By NoLa Girl504
    This was a great short story that sort of transitions the reader into Gardners next big novel..I thought it was very good and I'm glad I purchased this book before I read "Catch Me"
