5.0 out of 5 stars Highly recommended Jan. 30 2001
By C. Penn
Format:Mass Market Paperback
In her first romantic suspense novel, Beverly Barton tells the story of Johnny Mack Cahill, a redeemable bad boy in AFTER DARK. Set in the small town of Noble's Crossing, the streets roll up after dark leaving a quiet, sleeping town. Nothing wild goes on -- at least in public. Indeed, Noble's Crossing's secrets go on behind closed doors and mostly after dark.
Everyone in town knew that Johnny Mack Cahill was John Graham's illegitimate son, making him Kent Graham's half-brother. Fifteen years ago Kent hated his half-brother with a passion only matched by his determination to marry Lane Noble. When Kent found out about Lane's crush on Johnny Mack, he arranged for his half-brother's murder. Beaten nearly to death by Sheriff Buddy Lawler and his thugs, Johnny Mack was thrown into the cold waters of the Chickasaw River. Only Lane's discovery of his nearly dead body on the river's shore saved his life.
Johnny Mack returns to Noble's Crossing when an anonymous letter arrives stating that he has a son. He's stayed away from Noble's Crossing for fifteen years, but learning that he has son and that Lane stands accused of Kent's murder brings him back. Johnny Mack quickly discovers that fourteen year-old Will's life has been formed by lies, one stacked neatly on top of the next.
A dying woman's letter to adopted father Kent tore Will's world to shreds, revealing not only his adoption, but that his birth father is none other than Johnny Mack. Kent couldn't forgive the boy for being Johnny Mack's son. Nor could he forgive Lane for orchestrating the adoption of Johnny Mack's child.
Johnny Mack can't be scared off. He can't be run off. And he can't be bought off. He doesn't play by the rules and these days he's the one who always wins.

1.0 out of 5 stars Too Sleazy for a Romantic Suspense!! Feb. 23 2001
By fjmcmm
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I love romantic suspenses, but this didn't come close. The story concept was good, but the characters were so plastic. The sex wasn't romantic, just plain sleazy. And it wasn't hard to figure out what the secret was. The writing was simply amateurish. I recommend you read Tami Hoag, Sandra Brown, Nora Roberts, or Karen Robards instead.

If you love romantic suspense, then this book is for you. I could NOT put it down! I'm eagerly awaiting Beverly's next romantic suspense, EVERY MOVE SHE MAKES, which is coming out in September 2001.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not for a true mystery reader Jan. 31 2001
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This book was a real disappointment to me. I am proud to be a southerner, but the people in this book are portrayed to be sweltering sexaholics. I enjoy my mysteries as more mystery than romance. You can see the "secrets" coming way too early and there are not enough suspects to keep you guessing until the end. However, if you enjoy mindless drivel served up as "romantic suspense" this book is for you. My copy will be waiting for you at the local used book store.

After Dark is a can't-put-down read. Compelling characters, beautiful language and Ms. Barton's storytelling skills make it a pleasure to read--especially if you love hot Southern suspense! Don't miss this one!

AFTER DARK was a compelling book, atmospheric and impossible to put down. Beverly Barton has a magic touch with the bad boy hero. I highly recommend this book.
