Publisher's Summary

Some secrets need to be told....

Still reeling from her mother's recent death, Karen Whitlaw is stunned when she receives a package containing a mysterious notebook from her estranged father, whom she has barely seen since his return from the Vietnam War decades ago. Then, a shocking phone call: Karen's father has been murdered on the gritty streets of New Orleans.

Even if they lead to murder....

For homicide detective Marc Chastain, something about the case of a murdered homeless man just doesn't add up - especially after he meets the victim's daughter. Far from the cold woman he expected, Karen Whitlaw is warm and passionate. She is also in serious danger. A string of "accidents" have shaken Karen to the core, and forced her into the protective embrace of the charming detective she vowed to resist. Together, they unravel a disturbing story of politics, power, and murder - and face a killer who will stop at nothing to get his hands on her father's secrets.

    "Better than expected"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    This is the first book I read from Linda Howard. It had a great story line and a wonderful ending. It kept me wanting more and was never a dull moment. I am about to read another Linda Howard book and I am looking forward to the story.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Yes very much so. I was so curious and eager to see what was going to happen next


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

    This is the first time I have heard Natalie Ross and I thought she was great


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No


    Any additional comments?

    I look forward to continue listening to Linda Howard books

    Story
    "Formula Romance with a bit of mystery thrown in"

    This was OK, but it's basically a formula romance. The narration, while certainly skilled was a bit flowery for my tastes. I kept imagining being in a library room being read a "once upon a time" story. I won't be getting any more novels by this author.

    Story
    "A good Read But...."

    I am prefacing this review by saying I have never read a book by Linda Howard.
    With that being said, I thought the story line was good but was shocked by the explicit detail of the sex. It was not necessary and made me not want to listen anymore.
    I did continue the book and was glad I did as there was no other explicit sex scenes just overtones and the plot of the story was good.
    I am not sure if this is Linda Howard's style of writing.
    Has anyone else read her books?

    "Boring"
    What disappointed you about Kill and Tell?

    The plot line.


    What was most disappointing about Linda Howard’s story?

    Characters were uninteresting.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Natalie Ross?

    I don't know. I'm new here.


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

    No


    Any additional comments?

    The plot just didn't engage me. And I usually love murder thrillers.

    Story
    "Assasins, Police & Romance in New Orleans"
    If you could sum up Kill and Tell in three words, what would they be?

    Assassins, Police & Romance


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    The heroine who was able to defend herself.


    Any additional comments?

    The plot was well-designed, and I was involved throughout the narrative. The descriptions of New Orleans were evocative, those of the hunt(s) dramatic. Not having read any other books by this author, I found the sex unexpectedly explicit - the summary posted on Audible didn't include information re: that part of the narrative! Thankfully, the physical attraction between the main characters did not interfere with the story. I appreciated the link to the Vietnam War, and thought the description of a fictional sniper's thinking well-done.

    Story
    "Super Terrific Story and Narrator."
    What made the experience of listening to Kill and Tell the most enjoyable?

    Such a tight and solid story with a hero who embodies the idea of sexy, strong and caring. The female protagonist was extremely likeable and no fool when it came to getting satisfaction!


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Yes. The bady guys kept showing up and then being dispatched. I did not find any "What an Idiot" moments


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Hmmm.. I loved the burglar in the apartment towards the end of the story. GENIUS


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    It was sentimental at times dealing with parents and loss.


    Any additional comments?

    Love most of Linda Howard's books. The sequel All the Queen's Men is next on the list!

    "The Black BOOK holds the key to murder!~! 4 STARS"

    PLOT: THE mysterious black book and her fathers past holds the key to Karen's Future.

    NURSE Karen Whitelaw~ receives a black book from her wayward father. The Father who was never there and always made Karen and her deceased mother CRY. When a phone call from New Orleans sends Karen to ID the body of her DEAD father. the SEXY mega hunk Marc Chastain is the lead detective on a routine homicide that is anything but typical. a SECOND dead body is Rick Medina a CIA op who is murdered. The double murders are tied in to Karen. ADDED is the sinister Senator, AND a KILLER who is on Karen's trail and the MYSTERIOUS black book that may hold the key to the mystery. FIRST rate thriller, SUPER good couple, VG reader and 5 STAR story. This audio movies along very well and holds the interest. WE add the character of JOHN MEDINA~ ( All the Queens Men) and you need to follow up this audio with ALL THE QUEEN'S MEN that audible just released in unabridged (AFTER 10 years ) made available through audible for the complete tale. I ALSO RECOMMEND MR. PERFECT, ALL THE QUEENS MEN AND NOW YOU SEE HER~ ALL LINDA HOWARD GEMS.

    "Great story but it didn't "sing" for me"

    I love this old story. I've been revisiting Linda Howard's old books and trying to get them on Audible. I've always enjoyed this story, but for some reason, I couldn't get "into" it as much as her others. I think it was the narrator, but I can't quite put my finger on it. She was fine, the book was enjoyable and I'll listen to it again no question. But I didn't race to finish it, I switched to another book in the middle and that rarely happens for me. Sorry I can't be more exact - it just wasn't the "fit" I was hoping for.

    Story
    "Good book, not great, but good"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I would recommend this book for someone who is looking for a mindless pleasure, nothing too heavy.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    The story was fairly good. I thought the characters behavior & motivation was a bit questionable at times but it did not detract too much from the overall story line. The mystery wasn't very complex & the ending was a little abrupt, but overall it was an interesting premise. I have enjoyed all of Linda Howard's books I have read, and although this one was not my favorite, I did enjoy listening to it.

    The dialog and charactors made me laugh. I thoroughly enjoyed the story unfolding.
