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.

Yes. This wasn't a
It was a bit predictable.
Sometimes when the narrator would use the woman's/kid's voice, it annoyed me. But, that may just be me. It just took me away from the story.
If it was made into a T.V. movie, I'd probably watch it.
There were a couple of creative moments that I wouldn't have thought of, so I give points for that.
I enjoyed this story and the twists it offered. The writing is fairly simple but overall enjoyable
I thought this was a pretty good story. Kept me guessing most of the time. I loved all of it except for the very end. Would have loved some closure.
I really enjoy Audible and the great choice of books. I like true stories, good mysteries, and books about life events.
I like a book that is believable, and you can relate to the characters. The story must be fast paced with unforseen changes in the plot.
this book does it ALL, and does it well. The author kept the story alive, and managed to increase the "tension" as it progressed.
sandra Brown did a superb job, this was not a run of the mill who dun it tale. If you want to be kept on the edge, this is a book you will not want to miss.
As far as Sandra Brown I find her books to be hit or miss. The story is a little unbelievable and it drags especially early on. Overall I like her books, this one was a miss.
Well read but the story just did not hold up. Way too much poor kids stuff and an ending that was just too far out. I have enjoyed some of her other books, but this one some how got off the tracks. Some interesting moments, unfortunately over shadowed by the poor and unbelievable story line. I could not wait for this book to end while hoping for the best.
Say something about yourself!
I wasn't sure I'd like this but it was a very pleasant surprise. I could NOT put it down, so to speak..
Wow, I really enjoyed this book, it's exactly what I was looking for. Great story and I loved the narrator. I couldn't put it down, in fact, as soon as it was over, I started to listen to it a second time. I've already recommended it to friends. Sandra Brown is becomming one of my favorite authors. I'll try Envy next, hope its as good as Lethal.
I couldn't wait for it to end. I sped through parts of it. so much narrative spent on the mom and the 'bad guy' when he held her captive...boring and so unoriginal. I won't be picking up a Sandra Brown again for a long time.
Come on is that the best you could dream up for an ending? The FBI's guys wife is head of a criminal organization? You have got to be kidding me. The ending stunk.
