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.

It's up there with my top 5 Audio books.
Most definitely ... could hardly stop listening! Which plot? Great story, very well-defined characters.. haven't read too many S. Brown novels since I don't like too much romance and sex, and this one had much too much detailed sex,other than that, this was great!
PME, of course!
Great narrator - again, the narrator rates 5 in my book. The only negative comment I have-- too, too much sex. Could have done without all that and book would still be great .. even better.
Although it has a bunch of crude situations and words I couldn't stop listening. I liked it so much I had my husband listen to it too. It had a bit of a surprise at the ending which I didn't see coming.
Author Sandra Brown is an excellent, excellent writer! This is about the lives of two young authors who are friends and college buddys and thier difficult struggles becoming writers. The story is very captivating, entriguing and most certainly a thriller. I enjoyed the excellent job the reader Victor Slezak did. This is a book for adults since there is some very descriptive sexual scenes. I recommend this to readers who would like a change from the same ol' "who done it" style writing.
I finished listening to this book because I bought it and the reviews were positive. But the language is unbearable stale, e.g. she softly/huskily/gently answered, he felt rage/passion/revenge rise in his throat. Also the plot is completely obvious frm the the beginning. A waste of a credit.
Definitely. The plot is full of suspense and very well written.
His narration enhances the thrill and suspense involving the story.
This book ranks very high with me and I am pretty picky.
Lethal was another over the top GREAT. They both kept me at the edge of my seat.
He is very good at bringing characters to life
Thrilling and exciting!
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.
Yes, great plot! Narrator's southern accent makes the delivery sooo believable.
AMAZING - What else does he narrate!
Right up there at the top!
I've recommended this story to others on more than one occassion. All agreed that the book was a good listen and very entertaining.
audio addict! Mostly interested in history and some historical fiction. Will Durant is my all time favorite. Loving the Great Courses too.
Great concept. Takes too long to establish a real emotional connection between lead characters. Last chapter very cheesy. The crippled man and the older man that lives with him weren't fleshed out until the end. I thought they were lovers most of the book.
I like some Sandra brown when I'm in the mood. I like the cheesy parts too. I must say, skip this and read Slow Heat in Heaven. That is my favorite guilty pleasure book EVER. Definitely better than this. But the last few hours of this were very interesting. So not bad.
Yes. Could not put it down great writing and plot
Parker Evans sneaky full of suprises
Yes When the father died
Love making scenes were to much did not need to get so explesed
