Publisher's Summary

Like the city of New Orleans itself, Claire Laurent is a vibrant beauty laced with a mysterious elusiveness. The founder of French Silk, a fabulous lingerie company, she has fought hard to make it a worldwide success. Then a TV evangelist attacks French Silk’s erotic sleepwear as sinful. And when he is killed, Claire becomes the prime suspect.

District Attorney Robert Cassidy knows Claire is damning herself with lie after lie about the murder, even as he feels her drawing him into her world and her very soul. But neither Cassidy nor her protests of innocence can save Claire unless she reveals a shocking truth – one she has sworn to take to the grave….

What the Critics Say

"Set in atmospheric New Orleans, Brown's latest highly entertaining novel again demonstrates her mastery of the romantic suspense genre....[T]he novel is adroitly plotted and sleekly paced, and has just the right mix of menace and sex to keep pages turning." (Publishers Weekly)

    "Heroine was annoying!"

    I usually enjoy Sandra Brown's stories but this one's heroine really annoyed me. She was always getting caught lying about something. I'm glad I got it on sale and didn't waste a credit on this one.

    Story
    "A bit more "romance" than I expected."

    I find a true New Orleans accent very appealing. So why have a narrator with a phony accent? Although the characters are stereotypical I did get caught up in the tale and it held my interest. Some nice twists at the end......I was certain I had the mystery solved and then I was surprised.

    "The reader failed"

    This narrator was lovely when speaking for women but terrible on male voices. It really affected the quality of the listen.

    Story
    "Cardboard cutouts"

    The reader was impressive: she managed to act out all characters and even personalised the narration. The quality of narration exceeded the book: characters were cardboard cutouts -- the goodies and the badies -- the plot was gratuitously complex with contrived twists and turns. However, this popular author knows well how to put a good yarn together and it was the sort of undemanding book that makes tedious chores pass more quickly.

    "Will buy more Sandra :)"

    I am happy a took a chance on a new author to me. I like the mixture of romance and suspense ! It was done perfectly with balance. Loved the characters and the mystery that till the end of the book I am left with no idea to how it will turn out. Very good!
    However, the narrator needs to improve her performance, the male voices should emote realistic ! She made the hero sound like an old man :(
    Other than that, I have bought already my next Sandra brown audiobook :) you should as well :)
