Her trip to Georgia to meet the mysterious author takes her to an eerie, ruined cotton plantation, where Maris finds Parker Evans, a man confined to a wheelchair who carefully hides his past. Coaxing his novel from him chaper by chapter, Maris becomes caught up in his tale of two friends who rent a boat with a young woman for a night of sex and drinking. Only one person will return from that trip.
Disturbed about her sexual attraction to Parker and worried about her marriage to author and her co-publisher Noah Reed, Maris returns to New York, where the delivery of Parker's newest chapters convince her they are more than fiction. She wonders how well she knows her husband and begins a harrowing search for a truth that ties back to a terrifying crime and a man who will use her, or anyone, to get his revenge.

Kept my attention the entire time. Loved the plot and all the twists and turns. The characters were very interesting and just when you thought you knew what was going on...you didn't. Performance was excellent and overall it was very enjoyable.
I thought the writer was a genius to have woven the story the way she did: stories from the past mixed in with people from the present and then tied together with characters in a book. I am trying not to give the story away. You will just have to read it. It was a great read and the narration was absolutely excellent.
The narrator's use of his voice to emphasize strategically.
My first audible book that I've listened fully to. The narrator along with the story line kept me hooked to listening.
No, I know the ending so it wouldn't be as exciting.
The scene between Parker Evans and Noah in the old mill at the end of the book
I love the narration of Victor Slezak, in fact I sometimes choose my books when I know he is the narrator.
Maybe when you learn of how Parker Evans ended up in a wheelchair
Enjoyed this book very much.
A less predictable story line, some character depth and perhaps an ending that was not so obvious
This was as soppy as Mills and Boon
Mispronunciation of words
I laughed out loud at some of the more ridiculous parts of this book.
Tell us about yourself!
Up there in the list this is the second time i have read this book so i truly enjoyed it.
i read it brfore
sandra brown has several books i have listened to that he has read
Loved this story and had to wait untill the public library got it in again. I bought it because i like listening to it again and again.
Yes, the story kept you guessing and waiting to see what was to happen.
No, this was the first. He was great. I am an avid Dick Hill fan and snob, but Slezak was great. I was happy to hear that there is another great male narrator who will do romance.
Best of her books by far. I like Victor's voice. He does the southern accents very well and 'not over the top.' His voice is calming and easy to listen to. But if you are one of those that like energetic voices, this isn't for you. Try the sample. I really like the narration.
