Sandra Brown has rapidly risen to the top of the ranks of suspense novelists with a succession of stories that feature strong, independent heroines caught up in life-or-death situations. In each of these books she has explored the psychological underpinnings of both the villains and the heroes, and she has told her stories with a grittiness not common to most female authors. These traits, which have set her apart from the pack, and have helped to elevate her standing among readers, both male and female, are readily apparent in Hello, Darkness, the novel which will launch her association with Simon & Schuster.
Paris Gibson is a talkshow host on late-night radio at a station just outside Austin, Texas. She has come to this town to escape from an affair gone wrong, and the death of her former fiancé, for which she blames herself.
The other half of the affair, a police psychologist named Dean Malloy, has also recently relocated to Austin; in his case it is an effort to get his teenage son away from some bad influences in his old home.
Paris and Dean are drawn together when she realizes that one of her radio callers, a man who identifies himself as "Valentino," is telling her that he has just decided to get even with a woman who he feels has wronged him. He says that he is holding her in a secure place and that he plans to kill her within three days. Paris and Dean race to identify and locate the mysterious "Valentino" before he can fulfill his promise of death.
Ripe with sexual tension and filled with plot twists that are both exciting and surprising, Hello, Darkness is exactly the kind of book that readers of suspense fiction crave.
