Lizzy Gardner is a one-million copy bestselling series. Life for private investigator Lizzy Gardner will never be the same. It's been three weeks since her fiancé, Jared, was shot on what was supposed to be their wedding day. He's in a coma now, and Lizzy is being forced to make a decision she might not be able to live with. But a string of deaths has forced her to get back to work. While they appear to be unrelated accidents at first glance, a closer look shows they all have something in common. More than a decade earlier, the victims were all members of the Ambassador Club at a Sacramento high school: a posh posse that bullied other students, one of whom remains tormented years later. In this pulse-pounding thriller from New York Times and USA Today bestselling author T.R. Ragan, Lizzy will need her colleagues and what's left of her wits to help her track down a cunning killer with a deadly revenge list before the next name--maybe hers--is crossed off for good.… (mer)

Received from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

T.R. Ragan, I'm really mad at you. This is one of my favorite little known series and this book just upset me on a lot of levels. I'm not going to add spoilers because that's not my thing but I was really disappointed with every aspect of this story and have to think a lot about my star rating. If the intent was to make the reader angry and keep the book in the reader's mind, then well done.

This book made me sad. Against the traditional ending Lizzy loses her love, and changes who she is in the process. Granted great loss does change a person, but the changes here turn Lizzy into someone different, her character doesn't remain consistent to the person we have followed through 4 previous novels. I don't know what to make of that except that I expect in means there is a Lizzy Gardner book 6 in our future. ( )

Nearly 5 stars, but I cannot agree with the twist this takes into the next book, but still, great idea.
Read them in order, starting with the first book.
Recommended, fast page-turner. ( )

A special thank you to Amazon Publishings, Thomas & Mercer, and NetGalley for an ARC in exchange for an honest review.

ALMOST DEAD (The Lizzy Gardner Series Book # 5) by T.R. Ragan, another kick-ass group of strong women, for a cleverly written, fast-paced, and complex multi-layered winner! The mix of humor and evil, strongly reminding me of talented, Karin Slaughter, for a suspenseful action-packed crime thriller.

After PI Lizzy’s wedding was interrupted by gunfire and her husband to be, Jared was shot, he is now in a coma and his estranged family is fighting Lizzy to take control over his future. However, Lizzy wants to carry out Jared’s wishes.

With bad memories, Lizzy is left to stay with her sister, which is short lived due to all the violence with her sister's abusive husband. So now Lizzy and Haley are living with Kitally, in a huge house she inherited from her family, and the three girls are working together with the PI firm – Lizzy Gardner Investigations.

Wow, the girls are dealing with a number of complex cases, dogs, kidnapping, a fraud workman comp case, murders, and a serial killer out for revenge, stalkers, and ex-cons being released from prison to kill again. Lizzy has a number of enemies, and someone is following her.

In the meantime, business as usual. She is hired by a woman who suspects her high school classmates are being targeted, killed off one by one. They all have a common interest – they belonged to the Ambassador Club at a Sacramento High School, an elite group with a favorite pastime of bullying, raping, and tormenting students (these guys were pure evil). You better be careful, as your enemies will track you down years later.

Now decades later, someone is out for revenge and is quite clever; as each person is killed off and the list is getting shorter, as the bodies pile up. Before the client dies, she leaves Lizzy a list with the names of the students they tormented, and the members of the club. The killer has to be a chemist, as often there is food involved and poisons - always one step ahead. The killer likes to stick to her list as OCD, striking through each name as they are eliminated with careful and precise execution.

In addition to all the drama, one of Lizzy’s girls in her protection class is missing and she thinks the kidnapper, is using Shelby to lure her out, in order to move in for the kill.

The killer and the girls may have more in common than they think. Taking out the bad guys- for justice when the legal system, does not always work. They are tired of people hurting them and being the victim. Now the Lizzy Gardner girls are developing ten known criminals to watch . . Leading us into the next book.

As always, there are many cases which connect for a heart-pounding race against time, full of wit, humor, sarcasm, and evil. I loved the banter between the killer and her conscience, making you laugh out loud.

After reading, OBSESSED (Book 4), was excited to catch up with Lizzy and the gals -was not disappointed; racing to finish before bed. I really enjoy TR Ragan's style and her wit. Love the three gals living and working together (Charlie's Angels).

Lizzy, Haley, and Kitally may need to recruit, Jenny to help them out with their mission, to rid the world of the bad guys-- "she definitely has some tricks up her sleeves".

Looking forward to the next in the series. Evil Never Dies (The Lizzy Gardner Series Book #6). Cannot wait to see what is next for this group! This series is so good, may have to back and read books 1-3, which I missed. Highly recommend, if you love fast-paced complex crime thrillers. ( )

Lizzie Gardner is in desperate straits. The love of her life barely clings to live after being shot on their wedding day. But she is trying to keep it together by working. When a woman contacts her to tell her that a group of her friends from high school are dying in strange accidents, Lizzy is sceptical at first but it does not take long for her to believe that there is something to the woman's fears. Then when one of her self-defense students goes missing, LIzzy is also trying to find her. With the help of her assistants, Lizzy is determined to solve the crimes.

This series is just so addicitve. There are some really ugly characters and Lizzy and company don't always play by the rules. But somehow I am still pulling for them. Nice twist at the end left me wondering what will happen next. ( )
