    Devon Brady is a veterinarian working in a makeshift hospital at an island search and rescue site. When Jude Marrok arrives with his wounded black lab, she has no idea that she is about to be plunged into a whirlwind of terror, destruction, and passion. The last thing Devon needs is to be drawn into Marrok's high-stakes game. And while she feels increasingly drawn to him, she doesn't trust him. Is Jude her salvation or her damnation? Are the secrets he's protecting worth killing for?

    "Trite Bodice Ripper"
    Overall

    I purchased this book because I love dogs and thrillers. It is _not_ a thriller but a poorly written romance novel with the two main characters panting after each other within a sketchy thriller-type setting.

    The characters are predictable. The strong but vulnerable woman and the handsome tough guy with a heart of gold falling for a woman for the first time.

    There are many repetitive phrases; "he twisted his lips" is a favorite, whatever that means. Also "if he touches me I will [burst into flames] [melt]" etc.; pick one.

    If you like panting romances you might like this book but if you are looking for a thriller give this one a pass.

    The Ruins follows two American couples enjoying a pleasant, lazy beach holiday together in Mexico. On an impulse, they go off with newfound friends in search of one of their group, the young German who, in pursuit of a girl, has headed for the remote Mayan ruins, site of a fabled archeological dig.

    "Amount of neg reviews is right on"
    Overall

    This is my second posting of a review. I am absolutely stunned by the number of negative reviews of this book. I agree fully that it is a stinker and I am amused by the shallow few that loved it. In my experience few books have earned such vengence! I stopped listening right after my review, half way through. I sounds like I didn't miss anything!!

    Phillip Margolin, best selling author of The Undertaker's Widow, introduces the world to the first genuinely monstrous psychopath of the new century. Also available abridged.

    "Good Story, Poor Narration"
    Overall

    I liked the story; it kept me guessing. I really wish it had a different narrator, though. Or perhaps it was also the way it was edited. I don't care for her voice, but the worst part was the timing. Both distracted from the story. Too bad. . .
