Publisher's summary

Los Angeles is gripped by the exploding celebrity of Allison Murietta, her real identity unknown, a modern-day Jesse James with the compulsion to steal beautiful things, the vanity to invite the media along, and the conscience to donate much of her bounty to charity. Nobody ever gets hurt - until a job ends with ten gangsters lying dead and a half-million dollars worth of glittering diamonds missing.

Rookie Deputy Charlie Hood discovers the bodies, and he prevents an eyewitness - a schoolteacher named Suzanne Jones - from leaving the scene in her Corvette. Drawn to a mysterious charisma that has him off-balance from the beginning, Hood begins an intense affair with Suzanne. As the media frenzy surrounding Allison's exploits swells to a fever pitch and the Southland's most notorious killer sets out after her, a glimmer of recognition blooms in Hood, forcing him to choose between a deeply held sense of honor and a passion that threatens to consume him completely.

With a stone-cold killer locked in relentless pursuit, Suzanne and Hood continue their desperate dance around the secrets that brought them together, unsure whether each new dawn may signal the day their lies catch up with them.

Crack another case with Charlie Hood.

Critic reviews

"This tour de force of plotting and characterization may well be Parker's best book." (Publishers Weekly)

"The reading, performed by real-life husband-and-wife team Susan Ericksen and David Colacci, is performed with sensitivity.... Both pairs - Ericksen and Colacci as well as the two lead characters - blend perfectly in this taut thriller about love, greed, and redemption." (AudioFile)

Just okay...

Story very repetitive. Had a hard time staying interested. Listened tp several other books from this author, always enjoyed them. This book was disappointing.

I was unable to get past the first forty minutes or so of this book due to my strong aversion to this narrator. I was unable to keep going even though I gave it two attempts. It seemed to me as if the narrator should have been a male as the "voice" I heard from the sections of the book I was able to get through was not a feminine one. Just my opinion and not meant to be an attack on this person.
