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….

©1992 Sandra Brown (P)2010 Brilliance Audio, Inc.

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)

    Story
    "Not Impressed"
    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    I liked the idea of the storyline but the book itself was too drawn out. I almost stopped listening to it altogether because I was getting bored. This is surprising because I've like Sandra Brown's other books. The only good thing about the story was that there were so many possible murderers I couldn't figure out who did it until the end.

    Story
    "Great thriller!"
    If you could sum up French Silk in three words, what would they be?

    Great NOLA listen.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of French Silk?

    When Mary Catherine was in the hotel looking for her beau.


    Have you listened to any of Renée Raudman’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No. She is one of the best I've heard with southern dialect. I'm from the south, so I appreciated her performance.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Panties or pie, you can't beat French Silk


    Any additional comments?

    This was my first Sandra Brown book, but won''t be my last.

    Story
    "Good O'l Southern Comfort"

    I REALLY enjoyed listening to the narrator's southern draw for these characters. The story was really good too, but the narrator, for me, really made this audio book worth the credit I spent. I really like murder mysteries and this one did not dissapoint. Just when I knew who did it, I was completely surprised in the end. The sex was minimal and tasteful! I give this one a two thums up!!

    "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.
