She needs him if she wants to stay alive, and he needs her if he is to exact his revenge for the death of his wife and son. But staying alive is nothing next to the explosive attraction that threatens to consume them both - and places them into the greatest danger of all...falling in love.

I'm a published novelist under my own name and the pen name Sara Donati. I'm also an academic specializing in sociocultural linguistics.
I am a big fan of Brockmann's other books -- especially the last five or so SEAL Team series. On that basis, I thought I'd try this novel, one of her early (earliest?) efforts. Everybody starts somewhere, after all.
This is not a bad novel, but it is awkward and strained in tone, and the characters are less well rounded than those in later books. The narrator handled all the different regional and social dialects well.
Somehow it just didn't gel for me.
Hmmm. I'd rather see Izzy Zanella on a big screen, I think.
This book was so-so, I will try another of her books. However if it stinks then she's toast in my book.
Really liked the ending, it had a bad start but half-way thru really got into it.
Hated the accents. Harry sounded like a slow-witted jack ass.
This is my first Suzanne Brockmann book. I started it without much expectation, but Brockmann is an author of true skill, with an unique style that I enjoyed more than I expected. I have gotten sick of stories with exaggerated drama and murder plots. However, this was a very good suspense novel with many characters that were interesting. It wasn't forced.
Recommended especially for fans of Linda Howard ,Sandra Brown and JD Robb.
