Five years earlier, Jay was a hero of a disastrous fire at Charleston's police headquarters, which would have been even deadlier if not for the bravery of Jay and three other city officials who led others to safety.
Firefighter Raley Gannon, Jay's lifelong friend, had been assigned to investigate the fire, but the investigation ended in a scandal that shattered Raley's world, and forced him to surrender the woman he loved and the work to which he'd dedicated his life. For five years his resentment has festered, but he was helpless to set things right. That changes when he learns of Jay's shocking death.
As suspicion against Britt Shelley mounts, Raley realizes that the newswoman might be his only chance to get personal vindication - and justice for the seven victims of the police station fire. But there are powerful men who don't want to address unanswered questions about the fire, and will go to any lengths to protect their reputations.
As Raley and Britt discover more about what happened that fateful day, they realize that they're not only chasing after the truth but running for their lives.
Smoke Screen is Sandra Brown's most intense novel yet.

Entertaining story with a great narrator. It's a step above the usual Sandra Brown romance/suspense- a more complex plot with good surprises.
Sassy dialogue, humor, and a great reader are important to me.
This one smokes! I re purchased through audible as it is ez on I pod. I have listened to this one many times. Full version of White Hot is about the only one better. Audible, you really should try to get the full Victor Slezak read version. Fans are missing out. You got Envy and Hello Darkness, White Hot beats both of those books.
Lethal, same hunky character which Victor makes yummy
I have all of his SB performances...he is more $$$ but no one does SB characters better!
He makes all the heros "sexy as all get out" none better.
I do listen to all of SB books read by Victor in one sitting. Hence, I have to re listen another time to catch all the clues given by SB to figure out the who done character.
if you are a SB fan, this is one you must not miss. I buy all of SB Books read byVictor Slezak. None will disappoint read by him. Rainwater will break your heart
Sandra Brown spends too much time having her two heroes run from the same people over and over and over again. The plot is too simple to keep your interest for this many pages. She needed to wrap up the ending of her book a little faster. It dragged on...and that was WITH me organizing my garage while listening.
The story was entertaining enough, it kept me listening with interest. It all comes together nicely at the end with a surprise too! Perhaps a little too nicely though, and the gratuitous sex at the end was not really necessary.
...not too sure
I have enjoyed Sandra Brown books read by Tom Wopat, Renée Raudman, Natalie Ross...
I don't know, I couldn't engage
This book just kept getting better and better with each chapter. Several twists and I love when the author gives you a "Screaming out loud YES" moment. She had several in this one. As always Victor Slezak was masterful with his narration. I don't want these books to end because of his way to make a book 100 times better.
Also one of Sandra Brown's best endings. Some of them are not quite the way you'd want to end a story. This one is one of her best ever.
I've read Play Dirty, Envy, Mean Streak, Breath of Scandal, which are some of her best.
My new favorite Sandra Brown novel. Oh my!!! This book was so well written. I really felt like I knew these characters. It had action and suspense. I didn't want this one to end!!
