Publisher's Summary

New York Times best-selling author Sandra Brown is back with a spine-tingling story of murder and betrayal, and a homicide detective's struggle with his own rules of conduct.

When Detective Sergeant Duncan Hatcher is summoned to the home of Judge Cato Laird in the middle of the night to investigate a fatal shooting, he knows that discretion and kid-glove treatment are the key to staying in the judge's good graces and keeping his job.

At first glance, the case appears open-and-shut: Elise, the judge's trophy wife, interrupted a burglary in progress and killed the intruder in self-defense. But Duncan is immediately suspicious of Elise's innocent act. And further investigation quickly puts Duncan's career in jeopardy because he can't deny his increasing attraction to Elisa Laird, even if she is a married woman, a proven liar, and a murder suspect.

Ricochet's plot twists, as only Sandra Brown can write them, make this a gripping thriller, in which a decent cop's worst enemy may be his own conscience...and trusting the wrong person could mean the difference between life and death.

    "It's not her best"

    I usually love her books. This one is not one of my favorites. I was very intrigued at times, however, Elise was simply an unrealistic character. There is no way that anyone in their right mind would marry someone for the reasons that she did. Also, the romantic relationship between the detective and Elise was just weird and overly lustful. The narrator was fine, I didn't mind him, but I think I would've enjoyed it more if I read it myself. Give it a chance.

    "Good Narrator, Lousy Book"

    Waste of time.

    Unlike a lot of the reviews, I thought the narrator was good. The book however was not. If this guy is supposed to be some crackerjack detective, he's got a funny way of showing it.

    I've never met a man who is so given to all the supposedly deep thoughts (of course they're all about the icky main female character, Elise)he has. I think maybe he's supposed to be a tortured conflicted detective, but it just doesn't work. He sounds like a woman, not a man. Sandra Brown should have just had a female detective, however then she wouldn't have had all those weird out of place sex scenes in the book.

    This is the second book of Sandra Brown's I have listened to (what was I thinking?), and while this one was better than the other one I listened to, it wasn't by much.

    "Thank you Sandra Brown"

    Ricohet maybe the most touching, entertaining romantic mystery listen of my experience. Outstanding reading, audio reproduction quality, intense character development, magnificant plot fill me with joy and appreication for living in a world where such art florishes. Sandra Brown's grasp of human nature, and creativity in interuptating this nature in her characters simply holds me in awe. For me, this was a wonderful experience.

    "Really liked it !"

    I really enjoyed this book ! Could hardly wait to get back in the car and turn the ipod on! Yes, narration wasn't the best, but not bad enough to spoil it.

    "ricochet"

    I enjoyed the Sandra Brown's newest book & am enamored with this way of "reading" after listening to my first couple of audio books. It was also nice to see two main characters that were not paragons but had real life flaws.
    The narration lacked a lot. The narrator made Elise sound as if she was whining virtually all the time. This does not endear her to a listener. Being new to audio books & without reading the book, it's impossible to tell if this is how Brown intended her to come across. But she usually has stronger female characters.

    "Great Story with twists and turns"

    I really enjoyed this story. It unwinds slowly, but does not disappoint. True Sandra Brown style.
