Publisher's Summary

Since moving to Austin to ease the pain of tragic mistakes, Paris Gibson has led a life of virtual isolation, coming alive only at night when she hosts her popular radio show. Then one listener - who identifies himself as "Valentino" - tells Paris that the girl he loves jilted him because of Paris's on-air advice. He intends to exact revenge by killing the girl and then coming after Paris.
Desperate to stop the sinister Valentino, Paris enlists the help of the police - including crime psychologist Dean Malloy, the very man she had hoped never to meet again....

A Mystery That Will Keep You Guessing...

This is a good mystery using flashbacks which develop the mystery little by little. Subplots involve betrayal between friends and typical family conflicts. Of course there is murder. The story ended very well with plenty of twists and turns along the way, especially in the last few chapters. The story held my interest throughout, wanting to know what happens next. The sexual content is minimum and not over the top, however, the central story revolves around child sexual perpetrators.... mostly older men having and paying for sex with minor girls Child abuse is one topic that I try hard to avoid in my recreational reading, and I was happy that the descriptive passages were limited.

The romantic portion of the story involves a couple who falls in love (in a love at first sight sort of way), but one of them is already in a engaged, ready-to-be-married relationship. This was not a typical boy meets girl love story. It was refreshing that Sandra Brown found a way to bring what could have been a typical romantic triangle to a conflicting point with interest and suspense.

Narrator Victor Slezak is one of the better narrators that I've heard. His voice is smooth which is a 'must have' for me in order to listen for 13 hours.

A little contrived but still engaging enough.

It was simple enough to call the reveal in this story and the added in characters felt like last minute additions. The performance was good enough but at times it was difficult to tell the characters apart.
