Synopsis

#1 New York Times bestselling author Sandra Brown presents a spine-tingling story of murder and betrayal in high society Savannah, where a homicide detective finds his career -- and life -- on the line.

When Savannah detective Duncan Hatcher is summoned to an unusual crime scene, he knows discretion is key. Influential Judge Cato Laird's beloved trophy wife, Elise, has fatally shot a burglar. She claims self-defense, but Duncan suspects she's lying, and puts his career in jeopardy by investigating further. Then, in secret, Elise makes an incredible allegation, which he dismisses as the lie of a cunning woman trying to exploit his intense attraction to her. But when Elise goes missing, Duncan finds that trusting the wrong person could mean the difference between life and death for both of them.

BookLender 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.
