New York Times bestselling author Sandra Brown is back with a spine-tingling story of murder and betrayal—and a homicide detective’s struggle with his own rules of conduct.

When Detective Sergeant Duncan Hatcher is summoned to the home of Judge Cato Laird in the middle of the night to investigate a fatal shooting, he knows that discretion and kid-glove treatment are the key to staying in the judge’s good graces … and keeping his job.

At first glance, the case appears open-and-shut: Elise, the judge’s trophy wife, interrupted a burglary in progress and killed the intruder in self-defense. But Duncan is immediately suspicious of Elise’s innocent act. And further investigation quickly puts Duncan’s career in jeopardy—because he can’t deny his increasing attraction to Elisa Laird, even if she is a married woman, a proven liar, and a murder suspect.

Ricochet’s plot twists—as only Sandra Brown can write them—make this a gripping thriller in which a decent cop’s worst enemy may be his own conscience … and trusting the wrong person could mean the difference between life and death.

Listener Opinions

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Blaise | 1/28/2014

    " i am reading bestsellers for work. i really did not like this book. i will even be childish and call it stupid! that's how i feel about it. there are some books that are bestsellers because they are actually good and then there are some books that are bestsellers because a long time ago maybe the author once wrote a good book. this is definitely the latter in my opinion. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cris | 1/27/2014

    " Always enjoy Sandra Brown's books. This is about a woman who is married to a judge that kills an intruder. She says it was self-defense but the detective doesn't believe her. Many twists and turns and just fun to read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tina Demas Broccolo | 1/21/2014

    " What a great book. The characters were well developed and I really got in to it. It's was very interesting to see the story through the lead detective's eyes and the end had so many twists and turns that it really got exciting! It's nothing too in depth or profound, but definitely a fun summer read that I kept thinking about long after I had gotten out of the car (audio book for me). "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Missy | 1/18/2014

    " This was a good book, but I was waiting, and waiting, and waiting for "the big finish" to come along. I was disappointed and found this to be predictable - BUT it was well written and did keep my interest throughout =o) "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Aure `Reading With The Dark` | 1/13/2014

    " Don't look at my vote, I'll always give to Sandra my best, cause I absolutely adore her writing, the thrill while reading her books. And this one was as always amazing! Loved it! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Margo Kelly | 1/12/2014

    " I thought this book was pretty good. My daughter and I picked it up because the cover is TOTALLY cool (you cannot get the full effect from the picture here). I am a sucker for covers, and the hard back was on sale for like $5 or something. So, anyway I told my daughter I had to read it first and it's a good thing, because it is not age appropriate for her (due to sex and language). However, it was an enjoyable easy read. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Sharon | 1/12/2014

    " I did read the book and enjoyed the easy read that it was. I do not quite understand the intense appeal that this author has as the stories are good but that is about it. A surprise ending it was but getting there was sometimes trying. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Anne | 12/31/2013

    " Even though this book got off on a slow and confusing start, overall I thought this was a great book. This is sure a long way from Sandra Brown's earlier novels I read. Her writing got much better detailed and suspenseful. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Brandee | 12/25/2013

    " Typical murder mystery love story, but I love 'em! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Becky Ray | 12/6/2013

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Christy | 10/8/2013

    " I had to read this book for a couple of reasons...1. my mom bought it for me and it would be just plain rude not to, 2. Since it's set in my hometown and I used to work at SPD I couldn't resist. I have to say, it didn't let me down. Really great read and it kept me guessing the whole time. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Geno | 5/19/2013

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Krista | 11/18/2011

    " Probably not my favorite Sandra Brown, but the book definitely filled my need for the guilty pleasure reading SB provides. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Heidi | 10/12/2011

    " This was a little better than I expected, but certainly wasn't the mystery thriller of the century. I read it because it will soon be a made-for-tv movie on TNT. I thought that it would be fun to read it and then watch it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Eva | 10/5/2011
