Publisher's Summary

Number one New York Times and USA Today best-selling author Sandra Brown delivers her trademark nonstop suspense and supercharged sexual tension in this thriller about tainted heroism, cold fury, and vengeance without mercy.

Kerra Bailey is a television journalist on the rise, and she's hot on the trail of a story guaranteed to skyrocket her career to even greater heights: an interview with the legendary Major Trapper. Twenty-five years ago, the major emerged a hero from the bombing of the Pegasus Hotel in downtown Dallas when he was photographed leading a handful of survivors out of the collapsing building. The iconic picture transformed him into a beloved national icon, in constant demand for speeches and interviews - until he suddenly dropped out of the public eye, shunning all members of the media. However, Kerra is willing to use any means necessary to get to the major - even if she has to wrangle an introduction from his estranged son, former ATF agent John Trapper.

Still seething over his break with both the ATF and his father, John Trapper wants no association with the hotel bombing or his hero father and spurns the meddling reporters determined to drag them back into the limelight. Yet Kerra's sheer audacity and tantalizing hints that there's more to the story rouse Trapper's interest despite himself. And when her interview of a lifetime goes catastrophically awry - with unknown assailants targeting not only the major but also Kerra - Trapper realizes he needs her under wraps if he's going to track down the gunmen before they strike again...as well as discover, finally, who was responsible for the Pegasus bombing.

Kerra is wary of a man so charming one moment and dangerous the next, and she knows Trapper is withholding evidence collected during his ATF investigation into the bombing. But having no one else to trust and enemies lurking closer than they know, Kerra and Trapper join forces and risk their very lives to expose a sinuous network of lies and conspiracy running deep through Texas - and uncover who would want a national hero dead.

I'm no prude but...

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

I would recommend the book with an asterisk. I enjoyed the story and the performance but the overly detailed sex scenes and the slang used for anatomy seemed superfluous, outdated and really unnecessary to moving the story forward. There was a lot of sex and little romance; so much so that I think it would be off-putting to many.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Seeing Red?

I won't give specifics because I don't want to tip off readers to the story but there were several aha moments that weren't entirely predictable.

Which character – as performed by Victor Slezak – was your favorite?

How about my least favorite? I thought the performance on all characters was good except Trapper. His accent wasn't consistent, the delivery sporadically laconic and sometimes he sounded too much like other characters.

If this book were a movie would you go see it?

Probably would be more suited for a Hallmark movie Saturday afternoon.

Any additional comments?

This was my first book by Ms. Brown and I did enjoy the story but the sex took away from it--as I said in the headline I am no prude but I think the graphic descriptions and the puerile slang just made the listen uncomfortable. It wasn't sexual tension, rather graphic depiction.

not my favourite

I love Sandra Brown and have read all her books, but this was not a favorite. I struggled to finish it. I found it to be very slow. Definitely did not keep me on the edge of my seat.

Victor Slezak is the perfect reader

I'm a big fan of Sandra Brown audio books, especially when read by Victor Slezak. This story is suspenseful with some unexpected twists. The relationships between the characters is interesting. Very enjoyable.

Disappointed

I really like Sandra Brown, always have and I have been anxiously awaiting this book. But it was flat and just kind of blah. I knew who the bad guy was within the first 10 chapters, and it ended up being a long drawn out story with a hurry up we're done ending. And I'm all for a good sex scene but these were a little over the top, like she was trying to make up for the rest of the book being boring. Maybe it was the narrators voice or the rhythm of the production but I was very sleepy and disappointed. Doesn't mean I won't keep reading her work but this one wasn't good.

Great mystery

Seeing Red is a great mystery involving characters effected by a hotel bombing many years ago. It delves into the lives of a man who rescues a five year old girl and the after effects on their lives. Very in depth book.

Great Book

I really enjoy Sandra Browns writing style! I've read them all and even though they are all mystery/romance, I don't feel like they plots are repetitive! She keeps coming up with new material that is believable, entertaining, and well narrated. She is a skilled writer that structures her stories to continue to unfold but carry details throughout that leave the reader in awe.

Welcome Back Victor

Where does Seeing Red rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

I'm a long time fan of author and she never disappoints. She has mystery with a twist which is her signature writing, but since she started as a core romance writer, Ms Brown can add some sizzle in just a few words or scenes. (Do Not miss Mean Streak, reader Jonathan Davis, wow!)

What did you like best about this story?

If you liked author's short novel Prime time, this is on steroids!!

Which character – as performed by Victor Slezak – was your favorite?

I have all of Mr Slezak's Sandra Brown's reads. He brings the best out of all the characters as he interprets author so well. He adds so much to her writing.
My fave is White Hot unabridged if you can find it. Smoke Screen, and Lethal.

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

I always love the moment of truth that Ms Brown includes in each of her mystery novel. This book was worth the year long wait.

Any additional comments?

note: I do use the new 1.25x speed to match the author's intent.
I hope this was helpful?

Embarrassed to be listening

Enjoyed the story. Vulgar language and sex made me uncomfortable. Sandra Brown has done better
