Publisher's Summary

New York Times best-selling author Sandra Brown is back with a spine-tingling story of murder and betrayal, and a homicide detective's struggle with his own rules of conduct.

When Detective Sergeant Duncan Hatcher is summoned to the home of Judge Cato Laird in the middle of the night to investigate a fatal shooting, he knows that discretion and kid-glove treatment are the key to staying in the judge's good graces and keeping his job.

At first glance, the case appears open-and-shut: Elise, the judge's trophy wife, interrupted a burglary in progress and killed the intruder in self-defense. But Duncan is immediately suspicious of Elise's innocent act. And further investigation quickly puts Duncan's career in jeopardy because he can't deny his increasing attraction to Elisa Laird, even if she is a married woman, a proven liar, and a murder suspect.

Ricochet's plot twists, as only Sandra Brown can write them, make this a gripping thriller, in which a decent cop's worst enemy may be his own conscience...and trusting the wrong person could mean the difference between life and death.

Really liked it !

I really enjoyed this book ! Could hardly wait to get back in the car and turn the ipod on! Yes, narration wasn't the best, but not bad enough to spoil it.

ricochet

I enjoyed the Sandra Brown's newest book & am enamored with this way of "reading" after listening to my first couple of audio books. It was also nice to see two main characters that were not paragons but had real life flaws.
The narration lacked a lot. The narrator made Elise sound as if she was whining virtually all the time. This does not endear her to a listener. Being new to audio books & without reading the book, it's impossible to tell if this is how Brown intended her to come across. But she usually has stronger female characters.

Good but not as good as Envy

I love the narrator. The story is good. The romance is ok. Envy is still the best.

Great Story with twists and turns

I really enjoyed this story. It unwinds slowly, but does not disappoint. True Sandra Brown style.
