Sandra pulls another good crime thriller out of her hat. A nice thick book that you can sink right into. One where it takes a good long while to figure out who’s the good guy and whose not.
When Honor finds an “unconscious” body in her yard… one who happens to be playing possum and shortly has herself and her four year old daughter under the watch of a big gun, Honor thinks it can’t get much worse.
Then she realizes that Lee Coburn, owner of the gun, is also a face she has just seen on the news – a face accused of murdering 7 men the night before in cold blood. Then he proceeds to tear her house apart looking for “something”. To top it off, she realizes he had heard of her husband, a policeman, and lets her know that his death in a car accident 2 years before may not have been so accidental after all.
Before she knows it she torn trying to figure out who to trust and who will save her and her daughter before she learns so much that she becomes completely expendable.
A nice fast pace that keeps you interested and on edge. Honor has a believability in her victimization in that while she’s terrified for herself and her daughter, and follows the commands of the man with the gun, she’s not a complete doormat. She still remains a thinking, breathing person who keeps her eyes out for an opportunity to save themselves.
PS - Sandra has SIXTY NY Times bestsellers under her belt in her 30 year writing career - she knows how to write a good story!
