It began so peacefully. The scene is tranquil, domestic, happy. A young widow, Honor Gillette, is frosting cupcakes under the watchful eyes of her four-year-old daughter, Emily. The words finally penetrate "that innate mom-screen that filtered out unimportant chatter" - Emily is saying there's a sick man in their backyard.

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.

In a shocking turn of events Honor comes to believe Coburn is telling the truth and they go on the run in search of the secret Eddie held and the mastermind behind the mass killings, barely staying inches ahead of the law, those who were her trusted friends.

Always an ace at penning romantic suspense Sandra Drown has outdone herself with Lethal. From page 3 it's exciting, tightly plotted reading and ever mounting suspense peopled by finely drawn characters who are not who they appear to be.

This is stay-up-all-night reading!

LETHAL is one of Sandra Brown's best books in YEARS. I couldn't put it down!! I have found, in the last 4 or 5 years, that Ms Browns books are basically a cookie cutter copy of the last one with just a few changes made here and there....LETHAL blew me away!!! It had an exciting story, great characters and an excellant and surprising ending. Brings me back to Ms Browns earlier works that caused me to be hooked on her to begin with!!!! More Please!!!!

You never seem to disappoint miss brown, I never thought you could do better than "envy" but you have proved me wrong. Please consider writing a third book from the series Sunset Embrase, and Another Dawn, I would love to find out what has happened to Lee Coleman. I also look forward to see more of your books made in to movies. Thank you for the great reads!

Sandra Brown has written another very entertaining novel with the setting in the coastal region of Louisiana. Questions arise immediately when a 4-year old informs her recently widowed mother that an injured man is lying in their yard. Who is the man, and what is he looking for? Why and who had killed the woman's husband, a policeman. Who is the diabolical criminal manager corrupting the law enforcement agencies and trucking companies in smuggling human cargo and drugs while issuing assassination commands by cell phone. Who can be trusted? These questions are answered at a tumultuous pace right to the end. Be prepared to stay up late to finish reading this suspenseful story.

When I turned the page and Coburn was sitting and waiting. THE END That was the worst ending ever At least let Emily say hello. The rest of the story was compelling and never let me put it down. I just didn't want it to end so abruptly. Sandra Brown can really write these chillers.

The book is a magnet. Once you start you'll be drawn in to a twisting, turning plot that will consume your every spare moment till you're to the last page. And even then you'll wish it never would end. I never imagined for one second how it would end...
