Product Description

From Publishers Weekly

Starred Review. A sultry noir in contemporary clothes, this tight new thriller from Brown plays like measured chaos. The plot is twisting, the characters are well shaded, and Brown manipulates each string with a skilled hand, creating a story that will keep listeners puzzled and rapt. Narrator Boutsikaris is a perfect complement to the material. He lends the characters just enough twang to betray their Southern heritage but not so much as to make protagonist Duncan Hatcher seem anything less than a shrewd and hard-edged detective. And for Elise, the gorgeous but married damsel in distress who ties Duncan's libido and loyalties into knots, Boutsikaris employs a lilting tone that simultaneously suggests sweetness, sin and mystery. Did Elise's husband, a distinguished judge, hire someone to kill her, or is she involved in a plot with a drug dealer? Is Duncan making a mistake mistrusting Elise, or is his wariness the one thing that will save him? With Brown's skill for creating rich, layered characters and Boutsikaris's talent for embodying them, this audio doesn't disappoint.

From Booklist

Detective Duncan Hatcher has no reason to like Cato Laird, the judge who let Robert Savich, a Savannah crime lord, slip through the cracks by declaring a mistrial over a juror conflict. But Duncan is all business when he and his partner DeeDee Bowen are called to Laird's house one night to find Laird's beautiful wife, Elise, has fatally shot an intruder. Duncan and DeeDee are immediately suspicious of Elise, who managed to kill the man, Gary Ray Trotter, with a single, precise shot. Elise denies knowing Trotter, but Duncan isn't comfortable dismissing the case as self-defense. When Elise comes to him with the seemingly preposterous assertion that her adoring husband actually wants her dead, Duncan is more suspicious of her, even as his attraction to her grows. He continues to pursue the investigation, despite the fact that Cato himself clearly considers the case closed. But when Elise's car is discovered on a bridge with a dead man in it and no sign of Elise herself, Duncan realizes he may have misjudged Elise and fears it might be too late to help her. Gripping and absorbing, this is Brown's best thriller in years and a must-read for her many devotees. Kristine Huntley

Format: Mass Market Paperback
I thoroughly enjoyed this suspense, the plot has lots of surprising twists and turns and is carefully crafted, you don’t know whom to believe as the story unfolds and you are kept guessing till the last pages. I found it was a perfect combination of mystery and romance, I thoroughly enjoyed this book, a excellent read.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
I can't say what exactly grabbed me in this book, but I never put it down till the end. Maybe it is everything: from Duncan's unusual reaction to Elise, to her unusual masterplan, to the great backgound plot, to the hot, lustful and dangerous romance....strongly recommended.

Sandra Brown's novels usually provide me with a great amount of enjoyment: an enticing plot, mystery, great characters, suspense, romance, and superbly written. "Ricochet" certainly met more than my full anticipation.

The setting for the story is in Savannah, Georgia. The main prodigy is homicide detective Duncan Hatcher who has a master's degree in criminology, is both physically tough and mentally sharp, is unusually compassionate, and has the naturally acquired ability to play classical music on the piano. His partner is Dee Dee Bowen, who works very well with Hatcher employing her intuition, thoroughness and tenacity on their cases. She is also effective in controlling Hatcher's emotions when he becomes frustrated.

Hatcher's frustrations occur early in the story when key witnesses are murdered just prior to the trial of the master criminal, Robert Savich, and the presiding judge rules a mistrial. The story moves quickly with a surprising climax.

Always love Sandra Brown books! I love the way she writes and unlike some of the previous authors I have enjoyed, each of her
stories are completely new and unpredictable.
