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.

"Gripping and absorbing, this is Brown's best thriller in years and a must-read for her many devotees." (Booklist)
"Tight plotting, a hot love story with some nice twists, and a credible ending help make this a stand-out thriller." (Publishers Weekly)
I found the story lack intrigue. I also thought the story kind of dragged rather than just getting to the point.
The book/plot is good; keep one on your toes; like the book but the narrator is not that great..trying to immitate women's voices is not his forte...but would still recommend if one could overcome the narration of the book
I give this one a 3 star based purely on the enjoyment and suspense factor. You really could not tell who was the bad guy(s) until the very end. It is a typical Sandra Brown, with lots of plot intricacies (a la Envy), and lots of suspense. "Gripping" is appropriate; and naration is great. Somewhat unbelievable in substance and outcome; and some of the events are non-realistic (too fantastical). It is like she had to put these in to make the outcome work. But overall enjoyable read.
