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.

I'm no prude but...
Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?
I would recommend the book with an asterisk. I enjoyed the story and the performance but the overly detailed sex scenes and the slang used for anatomy seemed superfluous, outdated and really unnecessary to moving the story forward. There was a lot of sex and little romance; so much so that I think it would be off-putting to many.
What was one of the most memorable moments of Seeing Red?
I won't give specifics because I don't want to tip off readers to the story but there were several aha moments that weren't entirely predictable.
Which character – as performed by Victor Slezak – was your favorite?
How about my least favorite? I thought the performance on all characters was good except Trapper. His accent wasn't consistent, the delivery sporadically laconic and sometimes he sounded too much like other characters.
If this book were a movie would you go see it?
Probably would be more suited for a Hallmark movie Saturday afternoon.
Any additional comments?
This was my first book by Ms. Brown and I did enjoy the story but the sex took away from it--as I said in the headline I am no prude but I think the graphic descriptions and the puerile slang just made the listen uncomfortable. It wasn't sexual tension, rather graphic depiction.

not my favourite
I love Sandra Brown and have read all her books, but this was not a favorite. I struggled to finish it. I found it to be very slow. Definitely did not keep me on the edge of my seat.
