FIND ME is an intricately plotted and tightly written thrill ride with a unique and complex protagonist in Flora Dane. As you’ll hear during the interview, I was unable to put the book down until I reached the end.
Lisa Gardner Interview Notes
Lisa shares the backstory of Flora Dane, who was the victim of a high-profile kidnapping.
We discuss some of the research Lisa did for FIND HER, which included interviews with the FBI’s Office of Victim Assistance as well as with the mother of a Kidnap victim who was returned to her family.
Detective D.D. Warren, a recurring character in many of Lisa’s books, plays a pivotal role in FIND HER.
We discuss Lisa’s writing process. She believes her best work during the process is the editing phase, which typically takes her three months.
From the Publisher:
Flora Dane is a victim.
Seven years ago, carefree college student Flora was kidnapped while on spring break. For 472 days, Flora learned just how much one person can endure.
Flora Dane is a survivor.
Miraculously alive after her ordeal, Flora has spent the past five years reacquainting herself with the rhythms of normal life, working with her FBI victim advocate, Samuel Keynes. She has a mother who’s never stopped loving her, a brother who is scared of the person she’s become, and a bedroom wall covered with photos of other girls who’ve never made it home.
Flora Dane is reckless.
. . . or is she? When Boston detective D. D. Warren is called to the scene of a crime—a dead man and the bound, naked woman who killed him—she learns that Flora has tangled with three other suspects since her return to society. Is Flora a victim or a vigilante? And with her firsthand knowledge of criminal behavior, could she hold the key to rescuing a missing college student whose abduction has rocked Boston? When Flora herself disappears, D.D. realizes a far more sinister predator is out there. One who’s determined that this time, Flora Dane will never escape. And now it is all up to D. D. Warren to find her.
