Barrie Travis is a damn good reporter stuck at a low-budget television station when the First Lady calls her—and offers her the opportunity of a lifetime. Stunned by the loss of her infant son, the president’s wife hints he may have been murdered. Barrie sets out to find the truth, fighting for the exclusive story with the help of Gray Bondurant, a mysterious former presidential aide. Soon they unearth White House secrets that, if exposed, could topple the presidency. And certain powerful parties want nothing more than to see the scandalous past—and a certain young reporter—dead and buried.

“Fast fun with a wild twist at the end.” —Cosmopolitan

“A plot-wise, entertaining yarn.” —People

    " I haven't read many of Sandra Brown's books (this might be my second one???) but this could hold a candle to deMille or Lehane or Baldacci. Great, gripping read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ella | 2/12/2014

    " Good story. The only part I found hard to believe was that Gray would risk his life to save the First Lady, who was not worth saving. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 LJ Smith | 2/12/2014

    " Only read this to give Sandra Brown another chance. A good start but too many plots to follow easily. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Eva | 2/8/2014

    " pretty good. a bit confusing at the end though. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 NTE | 1/30/2014

    " This one had a different storyline, and I really appreciated the something new. It definitely had a thriller feel, which isn't my go-to, usually, but was well written and quick paced. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jennifer St. | 1/16/2014

    " Good but not one of my favorite Sandra Brown books. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Alyn | 12/30/2013

    " few writers can write romance and suspense with flair, and ms. brown does it well. politicians and those from the public service might hate the way she shed light to the dirty dealings of their profession. "

    " I wish there were half stars - this is more a three and a half. It was good. A romance novel with a bit of suspense in it. Not the best written book in the world but an easy and enjoyable read. Nice little twist at the end. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Krista | 7/25/2013

    " Good airplane page turner. Main character disappointed me by having sex with a stranger within minutes of meeting him (geez). I gave her another chance and enjoyed the story (it was written 15 yrs ago, after all). It's a chick book. "

    " I like Sandra Brown so it is no surprise that I found yet another book by her that I liked. I found the story line very intriguing and a couple of twists in that I didn't expect. Some I had figured out by the end, but not all of them. I like that in a book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Dawn | 7/13/2011

    " I didn't like this as much as I've liked her others. It was decent, with some good twists, but I guess I expected more. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Arlene | 9/25/2010

    " The First Lady calls journalist Barrie Travis out of the blue to join her for tea. Barrie follows up with a formal interview about the death of the First couple's baby from SIDS. What follows is shocking and suspenseful with an undercurrent of romance thrown in for good measure. "

    " Scary, power corrupts the most innocent and if your corrupt to begin with then its only worse. Great intrigue and I really didn't guess who was the true bad guy. Surprise and shock, how could a person do that? "
