There is, indeed. Honor asks Emily to retrieve her phone from the bedroom and goes outside, but as she draws closer the obviously wounded man acts so quickly, so professionally that she doesn't even have time to recoil before he has her neck in a hold and a gun pointed toward her heart.
Life change in a nano second - from baking cupcakes to being held hostage in her own home, forced to save herself and most of all, Emily. The man is Lee Coburn, the prime suspect in the massacre of seven people the previous night. Obviously, he is capable of anything, a soulless creature. He promises Honor he will not harm them if she does exactly as he says. She has no choice - her home is isolated, bordering a Louisiana bayou. Honor has remained there because it is the home she and her late policeman husband, Eddie, had shared.
Coburn begins to systematically dismantle her house, searching for something he claims Eddie has hidden. Despite Honor's denials of knowing what he is talking about he literally reduces the home to a shambles, while hinting that Eddie's death was not an accident, that he was killed for what he knew. Further, he claims that what he is looking for is of such great value that the lives of Honor and Emily are in danger.Read more ›
I am always skeptical when someone says that the book had them at the first line. It ususally takes me a coupl eof chapters to get into the book. This book had me in the first chapter. Not often a book does that.
This was book of action. The story spans a couple of days. A lot happens in those couple of days. Killings, bombings, double crosses and much more. The characters are developed enough to explain their actions and develop some feeling for them, but this is an action driven story. The story keeps us rivited wis each chapter adding to the story and teasing us into wanting to read more of it. This was a sign of an experienced author.
This was not Sandra brown's first novel. She has written several others and it show. She able to keep us interested and tell a very suspenseful story that keeps us guessing until the end. The plot twist caught me by surprise and always steered the story in a new interesting direction. We don't know who we can trust or what some characters might do. That is what keeps the reader guessing.
The author did know how to tease the readers, even at the very end. I found the ending a little sappy, without giving it away. Will they?
I don;t know if future generation will consider this fine literature. I think there could have been more character develpment, but that is what keeps the book light and moving.
I enjoyed the book. For an entaining read, I recommend it. Don't read it before you go to bed, because you will want to keep reading.
