Product Description

From Publishers Weekly

In Lee's contemporary romantic suspense novel set in Tampa Bay, Fla., former prosecutor Carissa Stover is now radio talk-show host Carey Justice, a syndicated success with left-of-center leanings. Learning that John Otis, a man she once prosecuted for murder, is set to die in three weeks, and unsure about his guilt, she begins a crusade to prove his innocence and save his life. For help, she turns to her ex-lover Detective Seamus Rourke. Will they be able to save Otis? Is the maniac who's now stalking those involved in Otis's conviction the real killer? Will Carey and Seamus get beyond their problems and build a new life together? Readers will likely have closed the book before these questions are answered. The romance becomes mired in excessive introspection about the ex-lovers' painful pasts, and pacing problems mar the suspense angleAthe few days left to save Otis seem an eternity. The novel's only saving grace is Otis himself, a man able to make beautiful poetry out of a lifetime of sorrow. Lee is the author of the Conard County series and also writes and publishes as Sue Civil-Brown. (July)

5.0 out of 5 stars good romance and suspense July 22 1999
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I've been a fan of Ms. Lee's for some time now and really like her stories. This one was very good also, even though I figured out the killer about half way through the book. The suspense of getting to the murderer before Mr. Otis was due to die was great. This is a good one, don't miss it.

I felt this book was preaching against the death penalty. I don't mind an author having an opinion but I don't like to be preached at during the whole book which I felt she did. I did not like this book at all. I usually buy books by the authors that I like. Rachel Lee was one of these but I will hesitate to purchase her next book. I also did not like the use of foul language in this book. I thought it was unnecessary. In the past her books have made me cry, laugh and just feel good. I had to force myself to finish this book.

It has been five years since Carey Justice was a hotshot prosecutor. Now she is the hottest radio talk show hostess. Carey has just found out that one of the men she had helped convict for murder is innocent, and there are three weeks until he is electrocuted. Using the power of the media, she broadcasts a series of shows on the case, and she enlists the help of her former lover, Seamus Rourke. A well written piece of mainstream romantic suspense, Before I Sleep is tight and dramatic. Before I Sleep is a melodrama filled with the sense of impending doom.
