The events that followed changed her life forever. Twelve years later, the woman now known as Abigail Lowery lives alone on the outskirts of a small town in the Ozarks. A freelance programmer, she works at home designing sophisticated security systems.

    You’ve lost your job as a department store lingerie buyer, your car’s been repossessed, and most of your furniture and small appliances have been sold off to pay last month’s rent. Now the rent is due again. And you live in New Jersey. What do you do? If you’re Stephanie Plum, you become a bounty hunter. But not just a nickel-and-dime bounty hunter; you go after the big money. That means a cop gone bad. And not just any cop. She goes after Joe Morelli, a disgraced former vice cop who is also the man that took her virginity....

    New York book editor Maris Matherly-Reed knows a best seller when she sees one - even if it is just a tantalizing partial manuscript submitted by a writer identified only as P.M.E., with the return address of an obscure island off the Georgia coast. Maris is intrigued enough to search for him.

    Where does Envy rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This book ranks very high with me and I am pretty picky.


    What other book might you compare Envy to and why?

    Lethal was another over the top GREAT. They both kept me at the edge of my seat.


    What about Victor Slezak’s performance did you like?

    He is very good at bringing characters to life


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Thrilling and exciting!


    Any additional comments?

    I wish there were more books that are up to the standards of Envy and Lethal. I haven't read all of Sandra Browns books, but these two rate pretty high in my mind.
