Dear Listener: Lindsay Foxe is a successful model in New York - a woman who hides behind a new name to protect herself from a past of betrayal and treachery and a present that becomes fraught with danger. The product of old San Francisco wealth, the daughter of a man who despises her, her life is forever changed when she is brutally assaulted by her sister’s husband, and then rejected by her family. Lindsay is finally forced to face up to her past when she meets S. C. Taylor, a tough ex-cop turned private investigator and computer troubleshooter. He is hired to protect her; but can he both win her trust and discover who is trying to kill her and why? Is it her family? A supposed friend or colleague? A faceless sicko, or perhaps a mad psychiatrist? Ah, it’s a mystery to savor.

Coulter does a great job of weaving mystery and romance into a story with a great plot and interesting characters that you love and detest.
I really enjoyed this story that begins with a terrible betrayal of trust and leads to violence, intrigue, romance, and vindication. Teenager Lindsay Foxe has every reason to give up after horrific treatment by her brother-in-law and receiving no support from her society family. Yet, she finds the will to become a successful young lady. The story leaves the reader wondering who continues to attack Lindsay as an adult and why they will not leave her alone. Detective Taylor provides Lindsay with the support and love that she never received from her family. Renee Raudman and Paul Costanzo provide excellent performances for each of the characters.
57 Yrs Young, have been reading since age 5. Avg 3-5 books per week. Avid reader/listener, enjoy ALL genres & many writing styles.
The story itself was pretty good, the writing was a bit crappy -- she needed to hang around with REAL cops or do more research to learn how to talk tough. Most of the police interaction wasn't even close to realistic but the story was amusing. Her leaping back & forward was ackwardly put, it wasn't clear exactly where you went for a paragraph or two. Expecially on the Taylor parts.
The narrators needed to be more balanced. Renee delivered her usual great performance - Paul was too lackluster and tended to make his portion drag.
This book is SO GOOD that I was pissed off that it ended! The characters are so delicious and intersting! I loved this book! The narrators are spectacular! Catherine Coulter is again ALWAYS a good read and I just hate when the books end! Ms. Coulter's books are wonderfully engaging and just a joy to read/listen to.
After four hours of this depressing tale I couldn't imagine a reason to go on. Cruelty, brutality and abuse fill the first four hours. If you are tender-hearted, I can not recommend it.
Lindsay should not have been such a wuss and the story is so unbelievable! Such a coward would be agoraphobic not modeling!
I'm listening to "one for the money"
Both disappointment and disbelief that Coulter wrote this! It wasn't up to her usual romantic thrillers! I can't believe the person who wrote the FBI thrillers wrote this book!
I don't recommend listening to this book.
I usually enjoy performances that have multiple narrators because you get men narrating men and women narrating women but this was like a bad soap opera narration.
I think I would as long as it was narrated by these narrators.
It had potential. The plot had potential but it was like a cheap B rated soap opera in the beginning. It did get better about half way through. I think it had more to do with the narration than anything. I have read other book by this other and I don't remember getting this feeling about them.
Female narrarator sounds like she has a marble in her mouth or needs to blow her nose or something.... drove me crazy!
Story was o.k. just went on for hours and hours without any exciting turns until the last two hours.
I am only half way through and don't know if I can - or even want - to finish this book. The only character in this book I can stomach is Taylor - he seems to be the only normal one in the bunch. Eden/Lindsey is a completely spineless wuss! While I could feel real sympathy for her at 16....by the time she hits her 20's, I am like, really?? Find your spine and tell that crazy moranic family to go jump off the Golden Gate bridge. Yikes, she is annoying....
The narrators were ok - I just don't usually care for 2 narrators doing a book, it seems disjointed and often pulls you out of the story when the voices change back and forth.
Anger at the sheer stupidity of the main character and lack of spine. Her family is supposed to be evil - but really came across as cartoon villains. And have mercy - way too long to get the story told. Just scene after scene of this spineless woman trying to grow a set and stand up for herself. Really tedious.
So - maybe I'll finish it - but probably not.
This was a good story. Enjoyed the way the author wove the story back to something that happened a good many years ago and they meet. I always enjoy Renee Rudman's narrating--She adds an acting ability. Would have given the performance a 5, however, Paul Costanzo has a good voice, but is "boring".
