#1 New York Times bestselling author Sandra Brown is back, with a blistering story about corruption, betrayal, and the ultimate abuse of power.

When newswoman Britt Shelley wakes up in bed with the handsome and hard-partying Jay Burgess, a rising star detective in the Charleston PD, she remembers nothing of how she got there...or of how Jay wound up dead.

Five years earlier, Jay was a hero of a disastrous fire at Charleston's police headquarters, which would have been even deadlier if not for the bravery of Jay and three other city officials who led others to safety. Firefighter Raley Gannon, Jay's lifelong friend, had been assigned to investigate the fire, but the investigation ended in a scandal that shattered Raley's world, and forced him to surrender the woman he loved and the work to which he'd dedicated his life. For five years his resentment has festered, but he was helpless to set things right. That changes when he learns of Jay's shocking death.

As suspicion against Britt Shelley mounts, Raley realizes that the newswoman might be his only chance to get personal vindication -- and justice for the seven victims of the police station fire. But there are powerful men who don't want to address unanswered questions about the fire, and will go to any lengths to protect their reputations. As Raley and Britt discover more about what happened that fateful day, they realize that they're not only chasing after the truth but running for their lives. Smoke Screen is Sandra Brown's most intense novel yet. Download and start listening now!

Listener Opinions

  • 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 Demarco | 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 Hill | 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 Beamer | 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 Beth | 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 L. | 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. "

    " 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 Mcnab | 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. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ida | 4/11/2011

  • 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. "
