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.

I'm sorry I could never recommend this to anyone because the narrator just KILLED IT!!! I really wish more authors would figure out that a book sounds better being read by a man and a woman... So disappointing...
One of Sandra Brown`s best
I loved this book, the story was great, the narration was great, the only criticism I have are the sex scenes, I think they are way too graphic and unnecessarily explicit, bordering on porn. maybe I am being a prude but personally I think they spoil a good book.
I was intrigued by the directions the plot took. And I liked the main characters, not cookie cutter.
Narration was good. Once I got into the rhythm of the narrator, my imagination took over and it just flowed.
Very glad I chose to listen to this.
The book was OK, a Sandra Brown mystery with some romance blended in. I don't think the book needed any kind of twist at the end and I thought the villian was totally unbelievable. My favorite parts were the interactions between the leading man and the little girl... so cute!
I have always loved Sandra Brown, and her book Envy was my all time favorite...until now. This book was perfect...excitement, mystery, romance...the works! And if I could listen to Victor Slezak all day every day I would be a very happy camper! The only complaint was the very ending. While it was very good, I kind of wanted just a little more at the end. Of course, don't we always want just a little more at the end of a great book!
the main character, really acted rutless
the story was well written
i like his voice....the tone was excellent for this character
it made me cry... in a sad and happy way
I downloaded this book based on previous reviews, and boy was I disappointed! I have enjoyed other Sandra Brown books, but this one was so predictable. And slow! I could not wait for it to be over, did a lot of fast forwarding. The ridiculous and repetitive banter between Coburn and Honor drove me nuts! I actually laughed hysterically at the end when the identity of the

This was my first book by Sandra Brown and I truly enjoyed it. The story was, for the most part, very well written, exciting and one I didn't want to leave. The narration was pitch perfect. The only caveat was the ending. The way Sandra pulled the plots and mystery together at the end was full of holes and, I'm afraid, not at all credible. I didn't believe the solution to the mystery. The actual ending left me flat and feeling like something important was missing. If it had not been for the ragged ending, I would have given this book 5 stars. Her writing left me wanting more and I will definitely listen to more of her books and hope she handles the resolution better next time!
I loved the story and how the suspense was on from the very first moment till the very end.
Victor Slezak added a lot to the story. I do not believe the book would the same effect had I listened to it from someone else.
