Now from Encore! New York Times bestselling author Sandra Brown presents a sizzling tale of corruption, betrayal, and redemption set amongst the ruling elite of Charleston, South Carolina.

When newswoman Britt Shelley wakes up to find herself in bed with Jay Burgess, a rising star detective in the Charleston police department, she remembers nothing of how she got there...or of how Jay wound up dead.

Handsome and hard-partying, Jay was one of four heroic city officials who risked their lives to lead others to safety during a catastrophic fire five years ago. Firefighter Raley Gannon, Jay’s lifelong friend, was assigned to lead the investigation into the cause of the fire. But it was an investigation he never got to complete because one calamitous night, his career was destroyed by scandal.

Now, the newswoman whose biased reporting helped bring about Raley’s downfall might be his only chance to vindicate himself and get justice for the fire’s victims. But as Raley and Britt discover more about what happened that fateful day, the more perilous their situation becomes, until they’re not only chasing after the truth but running for their lives.

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Patty | 2/11/2014

    " Decent thriller. Kept my interest throughout. Romance stuff a little harlequin novel like. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jill | 1/26/2014

    " Great suspense novel...the author always keeps you wondering what will happen next. Not sure I'm crazy about all the "sexual details" described in her books, but the general plots are very good. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jen | 1/25/2014

    " Again another excellent who-dunnit story. Although, this one had a LOT of monologues in it where people confessed or explained what happened. I ended up skimming through a lot of the end of the story. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jennifer | 1/25/2014

    " I did not want to put this book down. There was a real twist that had me gasping in shock out loud. I just could not believe what had happened. This is a definite must read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jess | 1/22/2014

    " The best Sandra Brown book I've read thus far! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Mona | 1/22/2014

    " My first beach read of the Indonesia summer trip. I even took it on the plane. This one was not my favorite of hers. Too much running around being chased for my taste. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Peggy | 1/14/2014

    " This was a pretty good book except for one major problem. All the deaths and destruction was a result of something that really shouldn't have been that big of a deal. ! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Shawn | 1/14/2014

    " I liked the story. However, I think it took the author too many words to accomplish it. I feel there is often too much explanation for everything from the characters' actions and what they are thinking. The plot was a bit predictable, I had the villain pegged early on. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Rose | 1/11/2014

    " The ending was great! My mind went there for a minute but dismissed it! Ha! Another great book! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Amie | 12/29/2013

    " I couldn't put this book down...loved it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mary | 12/27/2013

    " Maybe not her best work, but I still really enjoyed it. Also, it was a nice quick read for the Thanksgiving weekend. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kelly | 12/24/2013

    " I just finished the last page and truthfully it keeps you guessing until the last few chapters. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Rachelle | 12/16/2013

    " Very good! Keeps you guessing! I always make a prediction after all the main characters are introduced and always enjoy being wrong more than right. It was my first Sandra Brown book, but not my last. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kristin | 12/4/2013

    " Not sure why I continue to read Sandra Brown - I am always disappointed. Fairly promising mystery but it just got bogged down in too many words...should have only been a 100 page book! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Steve | 11/27/2013

    " While it was an entertaining story, I had a big problem with the timeline of the story and backstory. I was also bothered that Raley would go to such extremes to help Britt when Britt was the person who ruined his life several years earlier. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lindsey | 10/25/2013

    " A very intriguing mystery filled with arson, cover-ups, murder, and a bit of romance! A fun and suspenseful read! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Marianne | 1/19/2013

    " Great Plot. Sandra Brown is always a good sexy read. Dirty cops, bad fire, master cover up brings a fireman and TV reporter together. Bodies everywhere with a surprise twist at the end. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Donna | 1/14/2013

    " Typical Sandra Brown light read. Wish she would leave the detailed sex out, but guess that is what sells the books. She usually has a good plot. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Eky | 10/28/2012

    " Too bad, I didn't enjoy reading this book. It is far below my expectation. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Deb | 7/11/2012

    " Love this author, I don't think she's capable of writing a bad one. Worth reading although I didn't enjoy it as much as some of her others, but good story. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Donna | 12/24/2011

    " All you need to do is to see Sandra Brown's name on a book and you know that you are going to enjoy it, and this book doesn't disappoint. It was hard to put down, and oh so easy to pick up again. I already have her latest book, "Tough Customer" on order and am looking forward to receiving it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sue | 5/23/2011

    "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Elizabeth | 4/30/2011

    " The unraveling of a mysterious fire in a police station is tightly scripted and fast paced, but there's a lot more sex of the raunchy, nasty variety here than I would prefer. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Steve | 4/25/2011

    " A very good story it was pretty much what you would expect from Sandra Brown. I did not think there was much of a mystery here though it was entertaining. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Linda | 3/24/2011

    " Although somewhat formulaic (and despite figuring out the "who"), there was redemption in the end. The twists and turns involving the "why" and "how" kept my interest. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jill | 3/22/2011

    " This was a really good story that really kept my interest. Liked the plot line. "
