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.

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Chelsea | 1/23/2014

    " I enjoy Sandra Brown's simplistic yet effective writing style, but the characterization was a bit lacking in this novel. I loved the hero, but didn't like how the heroine wasn't seen as altogether good until the very end; it's hard to get into a novel when you can't love both the hero and the heroine throughout the story. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Diana | 1/21/2014

    " This is one of the best books I've ever read from Sandra Brown series of paperback. Content keeps you in suspense, craving for more. At the middle of the book, you'll still not able to figure out the motive of person in question. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Hapzydeco | 1/17/2014

    " Good read - not too suspenseful - plot and narrative develops very slowly. Too much emphasis on main character Detective Sergeant and Duncan Hatcher's foibles. "

    " Couldn't put it down! I kept telling myself to finish the current chapter and walk away ( I had a ton of things to do), but I simply couldn't! Every time a chapter ended I had to continue reading to find out what happened next. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Barbara | 12/7/2013

    " Detective finds himself in a touchy investigation. Doubts plague him with every new discovery. Judges, crime bosses, murder.....what more could you want from another page-turner by Sandra Brown? "

    " I wish it was possible to rate books half way through then at the end. I would give the first half 3 stars and the second half 5 stars. It started picking up for me at 68% done and got really good at 75%. Her books usually get me in the first chapter. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lori1035 | 1/4/2013

    " This book was really good. The plot just kept twisting until the very end. I was able to predict a few of the twists in advance but not everything. By the last hundred pages, I really didn't want to put the book down. It had me intrigued as to what would happen next. "
