Publisher's Summary

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.

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.

    "Great break from the mass produced dribble!"

    Great book. Great reading. The story has enough twists to keep you going, but doesn't get lost in trying to be too smart to follow. Fun book to listen to.

    "Good characters, but be careful where you listen!"

    This was a great book and definitely captivated my attention. The characters, plot and the twists were great. But as others have said pretty erotic scenes! This was my first Sandra Brown and I chose it because others said it was one of her best. It made me want to hear another one of her books. It was a great summer book!

    "a good listen..."

    The second part I thought was much better than the first but it kept my interest and wanting to listen everytime I had a few minues. You do not know untll near the end what actully happened or "who did it" so that was great. Will keep it and listen to it again in the near future. It was Worth my credit and I finished it in less than 7 days!!!

    "Loved it!"

    Right from the beginning I knew I wouldn't be able to put this one down! I had just finished Smash Cut and this one was even better! And I love Victor Slezak's narrating.

    "Narrator so-so, problematic plot"

    The narrator's voice for Parker, the main character, was very good. The rest of the time he was quite monotonous and couldn't do a woman's voice at all. The plot was full of inconsistencies and became increasingly unbelievable as the book continued. It was a good enough page-turner, but not a great listen overall.

    "My first Brown but not my last"

    Thoroughly enjoyed this book, which I hate to admit, is my first Sandra Brown book. Incredible plot with many twists and turns; believable characters; and I enjoyed Victor Slezak so much that the next audible book by Brown ("Rainwater")I downloaded and am presently listening to had to be narrated by Slezak. He is excellent. This is a must read.

    "Fantastic"

    Fun Romp of a book that has insight into the real meaning of Envy. Engaging. Smart. Well Written. Well spoken and read.

    "Good Plot, Mediocre Writing"

    The story line was very good- a book within a book, and interesting plot twists. But the dialog was so stilted and artificial, especially in the main "book". Part of the blame I attribute to the narrator, as his word emphasis contributed to the "just off" feeling.

    "terrific!"

    Had me on the edge of my seat. The reader and the author do not let you down.
