From #1 New York Times best-selling author Sandra Brown comes a heart-pounding story of survival, that takes the age-old question, "Does the end justify the means?" and turns it on its head.
Dr. Emory Charbonneau, a pediatrician and marathon runner, disappears on a mountain road in North Carolina. By the time her husband Jeff, miffed over a recent argument, reports her missing, the trail has grown cold. Literally. Fog and ice encapsulate the mountainous wilderness and paralyze the search for her.
While police suspect Jeff of "instant divorce," Emory, suffering from an unexplained head injury, regains consciousness and finds herself the captive of a man whose violent past is so dark that he won't even tell her his name. She's determined to escape him, and willing to take any risks necessary to survive.
Unexpectedly, however, the two have a dangerous encounter with people who adhere to a code of justice all their own. At the center of the dispute is a desperate young woman whom Emory can't turn her back on, even if it means breaking the law. Wrong becomes right at the hands of the man who strikes fear, but also sparks passion.
As her husband's deception is revealed, and the FBI closes in on her captor, Emory begins to wonder if the man with no name is, in fact, her rescuer from those who wish her dead - and from heartbreak.
Combining the nail-biting suspense and potent storytelling that has made Sandra Brown one of the world's best loved authors, MEAN STREAK is a wildly compelling novel about love, deceit, and the choices we must make in order to survive.

Definitely not my favorite. Very disappointed....
This book is an easy read, one you take to the airport or read in a doctors office. Its not however a book that you cannot put down. For me I was not wowed by the writing nor was I impressed by her lack of making the characters more interesting. Just not worth the amount of money paid for the book.
Enjoyable and interesting!
I read this book on vacation and it kept my interest.
However, it always amazes me how people with such desirable and admirable characteristics are attracted to those with such unattractive ones. This amazes me in real life too!
I think it was a bit far-fetched about the lengths one character went through to keep his privacy, but I played along.
The message: be careful who you trust and go with your instincts. Let's hope justice prevails more than half of the time.
