Publisher's Summary

When her four-year-old daughter informs her a sick man is in their yard, Honor Gillette rushes out to help him. But that "sick" man turns out to be Lee Coburn, the man accused of murdering seven people the night before. Dangerous, desperate, and armed, he promises Honor that she and her daughter won't be hurt as long as she does everything he asks. She has no choice but to accept him at his word.

But Honor soon discovers that even those close to her can't be trusted. Coburn claims that her beloved late husband possessed something extremely valuable that places Honor and her daughter in grave danger. Coburn is there to retrieve it - at any cost. From FBI offices in Washington, D.C., to a rundown shrimp boat in coastal Louisiana, Coburn and Honor run for their lives from the very people sworn to protect them, and unravel a web of corruption and depravity that threatens not only them, but the fabric of our society.

    "3 ½ stars. Entertaining suspense story"

    but the author insulted me with the ending.

    Boy, was I engrossed. I didn’t want to stop reading. It is a fun way to spend time as long as you can live with a let-down ending. I enjoyed 12 hours of the book, but I’ve been angry at the ending for 24 hours so far.

    This is suspense and mystery. This type of story has been done hundreds of times by many authors. But this is well done because the author is a good writer. Good guy hero does smart things which pleased me. Bookkeeper is the main bad guy who has cops and FBI agents on his payroll. He orders murders of anyone who gets in the way. His business is transportation protection for smuggling drugs and humans (sex slave traffic) into the US from Mexico.

    Coburn is accused of murdering seven people. He’s on the run and hides in the home of Honor and her four-year-old daughter. He searches her home looking for something he believes her late husband possessed. The cops, FBI, and bad guys are hunting Coburn. Honor soon learns that her life is in danger as well.

    I wanted to know more about Bookkeeper. It was hard to figure out how Bookkeeper first started doing all this and so powerfully - all by phone and never in person? Then we get a tell all at the end, which is not a good way to do a character.

    My biggest complaint is the ending. I wanted one more sentence at the end (see spoiler). It was such an entertaining story, but then the author jerks you around and leaves a bad taste in your mouth. I’m glad I read it, but the author insulted me, like she didn’t care if I liked her book. Before I purchased the book, I read other reviews which complained about the ending, so I prepared myself thinking this won’t be a romance. Just enjoy the story and expect them to separate in the end. I was ready for that. I was ok with that.

    CAUTION SPOILER:
    But then the author showed romance, and a desire to be together, which lit the romantic spark. The last scene is a possible meeting of the two, but it’s unfinished. The way it’s done, the reader “believes” they will get together. But the author leaves it hanging. So maddening!

    The narrator Victor Slezak was excellent.

    Genre: suspense mystery with an unknown potential romance.

    "On the edge of my seat...."

    The story has many twists and turns....and surprises. Narration is clear and appropriate to the subject matter. Wish there was a sequel.

    "Great story, but too graphical in the romance sect"
    Would you listen to Lethal again? Why?

    No. Don't need the graphic romance scenes. Leave something to the imagination!


    What does Victor Slezak bring to the story that you wouldn???t experience if you just read the book?

    Really great performance. Added to the listening.


    Any additional comments?

    I really enjoyed the story didn't want to put my Ipod down. However, suddenly there are graphic almost visual sex scenes. The book didn't need that at all and took away from it. At that point I thought I was listening to a Harlequin romance novel. The story is really good and doesn't need that at all. Victor Slezak is a great narrator and made it a good listen. When I first started listening I was sure I would download more of her novels, but now I don't think so.

    Story
    "Floats my Boat!"

    I am hooked on Sandra Brown AND Victor Slezak. This was another thriller with a surprise ending. I enjoyed the unexpected twists within the story. I suspected everyone of being untrustworthy. The characters being on the run truly kept the story moving. I am not a fan of precocious children though. I am old school and believe children should be seen and not heard. Emily cannot be that cute and verbal at age 4. I would rank this second to Envy, but I am working my way through Brown's novels. Highly recommended.

    Story
    "Sandra Brown & Victor Slezak, A winning team"

    As always the Brown - Slezak is a winning combination. Again Brown has come up with an interesting story and once again Slezak did an excellent job bringing the story to life. The story kept me interested and listening from start to finish. There are few author - narrator combinations that work as well as Sandra Brown and Victor Slezak. I thought that the story was original and compelling. And try as I did I didn't guess who the arch villain was until the arch villain was introduced at the end of the book.

    "Great Book! Stayed up all night listening!"

    This a great book. Well done!! The plot is enthralling. I love the main characters. Passion and Chemistry btw the Honor and Colben is perfect. Ms. Brown did a great job balancing the romantic aspects with the mystery plot.

    Victor Slezak is at his very best.
    I listened in one sitting, up tiill 5 am!

    Hope for more to come from Sandra Brown. Her latest books have been excellent.

    "Worst narrator ever!"

    I have never listened to such a bad narrating before. Sad to say the story was also a bit thin.

    "Highly disappointed"

    I was disappointed. I was able predict the bookkeeper within 2hours of listening to the book.. The storyline was boring and hard to follow!! This book could have been an eight hours book instead of 12
