The #1 New York Times bestselling author of Seeing Red presents a spine-tingling story of murder and betrayal in high society Savannah, where a homicide detective finds his career—and life—on the line.
When Savannah detective Duncan Hatcher is summoned to an unusual crime scene, he knows discretion is key. Influential Judge Cato Laird's beloved trophy wife, Elise, has fatally shot a burglar. She claims self-defense, but Duncan suspects she's lying, and puts his career in jeopardy by investigating further. Then, in secret, Elise makes an incredible allegation, which he dismisses as the lie of a cunning woman trying to exploit his intense attraction to her. But when Elise goes missing, Duncan finds that trusting the wrong person could mean the difference between life and death for both of them.

Not one of her best books
Even though ms brown delivers, the characters are weak and if you are like me who has read all her other novels, this one lacks a certain panache. The novels spins like her other books, lacking originality. If your a fan, you might want to read this to tic off your book list , but other than that, it's not worth a good thrill ride, very sedate.
There were so many holes in this plot I can't even count them. I can't believe the same person who wrote this also wrote Chill Factor. No more Sandra Brown books for me.
