Publisher's Summary

When her four-year-old daughter informs her a sick man is in their yard, Honor Gillette rushes out to help him. But that "sick" man turns out to be Lee Coburn, the man accused of murdering seven people the night before. Dangerous, desperate, and armed, he promises Honor that she and her daughter won't be hurt as long as she does everything he asks. She has no choice but to accept him at his word.

But Honor soon discovers that even those close to her can't be trusted. Coburn claims that her beloved late husband possessed something extremely valuable that places Honor and her daughter in grave danger. Coburn is there to retrieve it - at any cost. From FBI offices in Washington, D.C., to a rundown shrimp boat in coastal Louisiana, Coburn and Honor run for their lives from the very people sworn to protect them, and unravel a web of corruption and depravity that threatens not only them, but the fabric of our society.

    "Great Sandra Brown "who done it!""
    Would you listen to Lethal again? Why?

    I did re listen as victor Slezak makes the hero, just so Lethal<br/><br/>If you are a SB fan, then you know she always has a twist in the story. This is one of the<br/>better ones. Smoke Screen and White Hot are at the top. Audible only has short version of <br/>white hot,which is a shame. We really miss out.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Lethal?

    many but coburn grabbing the kid and her bankie or when he indulges his sweet tooth were good for me. SB always makes her few sex scenes hot hot. Sandra can really paint her heros as strong as they can get. Her adjectives are just so strong and make the hero, just yummy and of course Lethal.<br/><br/><br/>


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

    I have all his performances...he has such great a reading voice...I melt as he reads the hunkie male characters.


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

    yup, both times


    Any additional comments?

    fans of SB listen to this one twice to catch the clues

    Story
    "First Sandra Brown-Lived up to hype with exception"
    If you could sum up Lethal in three words, what would they be?

    Detailed, intriguing, predictable


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Stan - Dedication to his principles. His character was abrasive (as it was written to be) but love for his family caused him to have blinders on


    What does Victor Slezak bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Liked his reading of the male characters. Found his reading of Emily to be annoying


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

    Honor talking to Stan and helping him to see the forest and not just the treees

    "Excitement, Twists, and Adventure!"

    I enjoyed reading Lethal by Sandra Brown. The narrator did a good job as well. The author takes us on a journey of conspiricy, mystery, and danger. After the main character and her young daughter are kidnapped, they learn that they don't know who they can trust anymore! Perhaps there is much more behind their recent losses than they could have ever imagined! Who do you turn to when no one appears safe? Do you contact your loved ones when doing so may place them at risk? With so many unknowns, where do you turn next?

    I loved witnessing this exciting story unfold as the characters made their journey through constant turmoil while trying to discover and solve the root of the conspiracy. This was my first time listening to a Sandra Brown novel. I loved the adventure and couldn't stop listening. I will be looking for additional books by this author. If you like mystery, suspense, and excitement in a book, I recommend you give Lethal a try!

    "Good Book"

    We enjoyed this book. I was totally shocked at the bad guy - a total surprise.

    The book would have been better with a female narrator for the female characters.

    Story
    "A near miss"

    This story has all the elements, too many of them. If you're using a formula for a certain kind of book, you don't have to insert ALL the items. 1) woman in danger, make her a single mother, a widow, give her a little girl. 2) handsome, manly-man, Dangerous, but turns out to be the good guy. Too obvious. It is not faultlessly crafted. It also has too many elements that don't make enough sense, they should have been left out. It doesn't add up at the end. Perhaps there should have been more editing. It ends up formulaic. It's a pretty good idea, but perhaps if it was pared down and then polish what's left it could have been much better.
    The "communication" with the Bookkeeper premise that is dropped in at the end does not fit how it is handled earlier in the book. It doesn't work. It becomes a little too obvious that certain facts are being withheld to spring on us later, and so it isn't a surprise.
    I did enjoy it, but the only thinking it made me do was "Why the heck did the author do that, it doesn't work?" It really needs better editing. Firm editing.

    The narration was excellent.

    "Slezak does mean & ornery like nobody else I know"

    love, love, love sandra brown's later books and this is one of the best. I figured out who the bookkeeper was in the middle, but by the time he was revealed I'd forgotten all about it, the action had me so shook up.
