I read my first Sandra Brown novel about 20 years ago. My favorite of her series is the Texas! series. I entertained myself endlessly on Sandra Brown's book. She always has romance, action, some heartbreaking moment and more. Lethal her newest book published in September 20 is just as fun to read. I thought Coburn was the 'bad guy'. He certainly does not sound 'safe' when he first burst into scene. Yes, burst. There's not other word for it. You sit up and take notice when he's on. Honor Gillette is not one of my favorite of her heroine, but she grow on me. When the story is spectacular, it's difficult not to enjoy every character in the book.

Even the villain is quite enjoyable. Ms. Brown kept me guessing almost to the end. I was almost tempted to jump to the last chapter and read ahead. But, I managed to contained myself since my husband reminded me I only do that on books I am not enjoying. I wonder if there's going to be another book with these couple.

About the Book (from the author's site)
 When her four year old daughter informs her a sick man is in their yard, Honor Gillette rushes out to help him. But that "sick" man turns out to be Lee Coburn, the man accused of murdering seven people the night before. Dangerous, desperate, and armed, he promises Honor that she and her daughter won't be hurt as long as she does everything he asks. She has no choice but to accept him at his word.

But Honor soon discovers that even those close to her can't be trusted. Coburn claims that her beloved late husband possessed something extremely valuable that places Honor and her daughter in grave danger. Coburn is there to retrieve it -- at any cost. From FBI offices in Washington, D.C., to a rundown shrimp boat in coastal Louisiana, Coburn and Honor run for their lives from the very people sworn to protect them, and unravel a web of corruption and depravity that threatens not only them, but the fabric of our society.
