Book Description

December 2002 Thorndike Press Large Print Basic Series
While serving as a juror on a high-profile murder trial, Dr. Rennie Newton, usually cool and reserved, finds herself defending the inalienable rights of the accused-even as his stare unnerves her. Ominously, when she arrives home, five dozen roses are there waiting for her. Now, as she becomes the obsession of Lozada, the accused murderer she helped acquit, Rennie is drawn into a ferocious endgame of vengeance with an embittered cop who wants Lozada-by any means necessary.

Product Description

From Amazon

When Dr. Rennie Newton's jury duty on a case involving a contract killer ends in an acquittal for Ricky Lozada, her carefully composed and very private life begins to unravel. First, someone breaks into her house to leave her an anonymous dozen red roses. Then her colleague and one-time rival for the chief of surgery job is murdered in the parking lot of her hospital, which makes her a prime suspect, especially when the police learn that she's killed a man once before. None of that stops Detective Wick Threadgill from falling in love with her; unlike his partner, he's sure that Lozada, not Rennie, is behind Howell's murder. And it soon becomes clear that the killer is so obsessed with Rennie that he'll do anything to have her--including killing again. Brown, master of the romantic mystery, goes into darker territory here, but she handles it with her usual deftness and turns in a well-paced if not particularly heart-stopping thriller with the requisite happy ending for Rennie and Wick. --Jane Adams --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

From Publishers Weekly

Brown's latest thriller pits the infamous Ricky Lozada, an unscrupulous killer for hire, against Wick Threadgill, a wily, disgruntled detective on leave from the force. Threadgill's former partner, Oren Wesley, lures him back with the news that Lozada-against whom Threadgill has a personal vendetta-has murdered a respected doctor. The author ups the stakes by giving Threadgill and the killer the same love interest: Dr. Rennie Newton, a no-nonsense surgeon who unwittingly attracts Lozada's obsessive attention while serving on a jury that acquits him for murder. Newton's secret past raises doubts about where exactly her loyalties lie, and Brown deftly builds suspense around the romantic aspect of her story. She also scores points for her insight into the sociopath's mind, despite a rather facile explanation of how he went bad. (Not everyone with a handicapped younger sibling who gets all the parents' attention ends up a ruthless killer.) Similarly, the underlying reason for Dr. Newton's startling transformation from a young adult who lived on the wild side to a cold, controlled professional is too pat. Worst of all, Brown's prose seems aimed at an audience of eighth-graders, padded throughout with a slew of adjectives, useless descriptions and catch phrases ("Is that your final answer?"). But once things get rolling, the plot crackles with tension moving toward the final showdown between Lozada and Wick. Brown fans will not be disappointed.

4.0 out of 5 stars creepy stalker July 15 2004
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Sandra Brown has become one of my favorite writers. This book in particular wasn't as heavy as some of her books. This one you knew who the bad guy was but didn't know when he would come around. The chemistry between the two main charaters was typical and predictable but with their different personalities they meshed very well together.
A very good book.

1.0 out of 5 stars A tired plot, a thoroughly unlikable heroine Nov. 29 2002
By A Customer
Sandra Brown is a favorite author--I always buy her books as soon as they are released. I wish I had waited on this one. The plot is old and tired (A criminal fixates on a juror at his trial--haven't they made a movie or two with this plot line?), the heroine is unlikable and unbelievable and I am sick to death of maverick cops. Can someone write a book where the hero isn't a tortured loner? Ms. Brown is far more talented than this book. Take a pass, borrow it from a friend or the library if you must, but save your money for her next book. I'm sure it will be better.

Liked the story and the ending. Please don't ask for this after every book. Will prefer to purchase regular paperbacks instead. Most annoying
