Burke Basile is the hard-bitten cop whose world shattered when a fellow officer died from a bullet fired from Burke's own handgun. When his unhappy marriage crumbles, and he has nothing left to lose, Burke focuses his rage on his nemesis: Pinkie Duvall, a sinister flamboyant defense attorney who has just helped a known killer get away with another murder. Determined to bring the powerful Duvall down, Burke strikes at the attorney's most vulnerable spot: the gorgeous wife Duvall pampers but keeps prisoner, a woman whose love Pinkie will never have.
Remy Duvall was destitute and at the mercy of New Orleans' streets before Pinkie Duvall made her his trophy. When Burke strikes, taking Remy as his captive, it sets off a duel between the criminal lawyer and the ex-cop that explodes into the streets of the French Quarter and intensifies in the steamy swamps of Louisiana.
For Burke, who is struggling with his own anguished spirit, his fight with Duvall is a matter of honor. But the one thing he could have never imagined is the passion that erupts between himself and Duvall's wife. As dozens of players, from the innocent to the corrupt, are drawn into the drama, Burke and Remy have one way out: through a desperate confrontation in the middle of Mardi Gras madness.

I am a huge Sandra Brown fan and this is one of her best.
I've read this book before and years ago listened to it on tape... this seems to be just taken from a bad tape.. it's horrible in it's quality. This is a good book, good narrator and horrible transfer of format. Big waste of money!
Honestly I wasn't impressed with the story. I'm a closet Sandra Brown fan and expected to enjoy this story. Somehow it just seemed lacking. Perhaps because it's an abridged version where I hardly ever stray from unabridged.
Also, the audio quality of this recording was TERRIBLE even with a #4 file. I found that distracting and even though it shouldn't, it took away from my enjoyment.
