Synopsis

FROM THE AUTHOR OF THE #1 BESTSELLER CHILL FACTOR New York Times bestselling author Sandra Brown is back with a spine-tingling story of murder and betrayal -- and a homicide detective's struggle with his own rules of conduct. When Detective Sergeant Duncan Hatcher is summoned to the home of Judge Cato Laird in the middle of the night to investigate a fatal shooting, he knows that discretion and kid-glove treatment are the key to staying in the judge's good graces and keeping his job. At first glance, the case appears open-and-shut: Elise, the judge's trophy wife, interrupted a burglary in progress and killed the intruder in self-defense. But Duncan is immediately suspicious of Elise's innocent act. And further investigation quickly puts Duncan's career in jeopardy -- because he can't deny his increasing attraction to Elisa Laird, even if she is a married woman, a proven liar, and a murder suspect. Ricochet's plot twists -- as only Sandra Brown can write them -- make this a gripping thriller, in which a decent cop's worst enemy may be his own conscience...and trusting the wrong person could mean the difference between life and death.

AudiobooksNow review by Kathy on 2008-01-10 16:18:19

I bought this book at an airport before flying from the East to the West coast. I had read another Sandra Brown novel before and so I knew what to expect. I was not let down. Her stories are sexy crime thrillers. She enjoys leaving you guessing what the next twist in the story will be. In fact, she enjoys using the tactic of leaving a little cliffhanger at the end of each chapter, so that you can't wait to get to the next one. And she doesn't immediately gratify the reader with a solution to the previous cliffhanger, but rather lets it hang for a little while. This is not great literature. It is what I like to call junk food for the brain, but it's satisfying nonetheless.
