Number one New York Times and USA Today best-selling author Sandra Brown delivers her trademark nonstop suspense and supercharged sexual tension in this thriller about tainted heroism, cold fury, and vengeance without mercy.
Kerra Bailey is a television journalist on the rise, and she's hot on the trail of a story guaranteed to skyrocket her career to even greater heights: an interview with the legendary Major Trapper. Twenty-five years ago, the major emerged a hero from the bombing of the Pegasus Hotel in downtown Dallas when he was photographed leading a handful of survivors out of the collapsing building. The iconic picture transformed him into a beloved national icon, in constant demand for speeches and interviews - until he suddenly dropped out of the public eye, shunning all members of the media. However, Kerra is willing to use any means necessary to get to the major - even if she has to wrangle an introduction from his estranged son, former ATF agent John Trapper.
Still seething over his break with both the ATF and his father, John Trapper wants no association with the hotel bombing or his hero father and spurns the meddling reporters determined to drag them back into the limelight. Yet Kerra's sheer audacity and tantalizing hints that there's more to the story rouse Trapper's interest despite himself. And when her interview of a lifetime goes catastrophically awry - with unknown assailants targeting not only the major but also Kerra - Trapper realizes he needs her under wraps if he's going to track down the gunmen before they strike again...as well as discover, finally, who was responsible for the Pegasus bombing.
Kerra is wary of a man so charming one moment and dangerous the next, and she knows Trapper is withholding evidence collected during his ATF investigation into the bombing. But having no one else to trust and enemies lurking closer than they know, Kerra and Trapper join forces and risk their very lives to expose a sinuous network of lies and conspiracy running deep through Texas - and uncover who would want a national hero dead.

Welcome Back Victor
I'm a long time fan of author and she never disappoints. She has mystery with a twist which is her signature writing, but since she started as a core romance writer, Ms Brown can add some sizzle in just a few words or scenes. (Do Not miss Mean Streak, reader Jonathan Davis, wow!)
If you liked author's short novel Prime time, this is on steroids!!
I have all of Mr Slezak's Sandra Brown's reads. He brings the best out of all the characters as he interprets author so well. He adds so much to her writing.
My fave is White Hot unabridged if you can find it. Smoke Screen, and Lethal.
I always love the moment of truth that Ms Brown includes in each of her mystery novel. This book was worth the year long wait.
note: I do use the new 1.25x speed to match the author's intent.
I hope this was helpful?
What's better than a great Sandra Brown novel? One performed by Victor Slezak. This is going on my favorite list.
