#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.

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sue | 1/23/2014

    " For light reading, I enjoyed this book...nothing special...somewhat predictable...but good enough! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jenny Hadley | 1/21/2014

    " I think this would be an excellent movie. Fun to read and hard to put down. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jen Noble | 1/18/2014

    " Fun and easy to read, suspense thriller. And the whodunit had a great twist at the end. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Steve | 1/11/2014

    " 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 Tasha Neaton | 1/11/2014

    " I loved it, just enough mystery to keep me entertained and guessing and not too much romance. Perfect book for logan and I to read together. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Cathy | 12/30/2013

    " A decent book to read. "

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

    " I enjoyed this book and the challenge of the twists to the plot and being able to guess who the "bad guy" was before being told - it still left me guessing whether or not I was right clear to the end. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Shirley | 12/23/2013

    " As usual Sandra Brown creates quite an exciting story. I thoroughly enjoy her books and the settings she uses. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jesica Abella | 12/5/2013

    " I was engrossed in this book all weekend. How terrifying to have your world turned upside down... no one to trust. I couldn't put it down. I had to know how all of this came about and how on earth everything would be put right. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 John | 12/5/2013

    " Very enjoyable. All the Sandra Brown books I've read, thrillers, not romance, have been very good. I was completely confused by the sex scene on page 434 (paperback copy). What the heck is the "slit" she's talking about? The tip of his penis? Very strange. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Isabel Roberts-ammon | 11/26/2013

    " OK thriller. You will keep reading. However nothing too sophisticated or special. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Elizabeth Martel | 9/14/2013

    " Gripping and non -put-downable....the reason I so enjoy Sandra Brown's books. The twists in this plot were a little hard to follow, and the decisions and some actions of the heros were hard to understand...but a very good read nonetheless. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Nicole | 6/17/2013

    " Her signature formula for romance was missing from this novel - as well as character development. I never got the feeling that there was a "love" connection between the two main characters. And, the remaining characters never were fully developed. The entire story was summed up in the last chapter. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Shelleen Toland | 5/21/2013

    " I could not stop listening to this and I had figured out who the bad person was about 3/4 of the way through the book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Brasel - | 5/14/2013

    " Very good, another good book about the corruption of the police departments. "

    " This is a good book with a good twist. Easy read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Linda | 4/7/2013

    " 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 Leslie | 11/24/2012

    " A very good mystery type read. A little slow to get into, but after the first few chapters, I was not able to put it down. Surprise ending as you would expect, but not what you would expect, at least I didnt. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Cindy | 7/9/2012

    " Quick read for the beach or pool! "

    "

  • 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. "
