Mediocre. Blah. Average and only so-so. Pretty boring, with improbable ending.

I finished it in one day and wouldn't have guessed who did it if I hadn't peeked ahead. If you enjoy this one, be sure to check out Close Enough To Kill, which has some of the same characters but is also a stand alone book.

This book is one of Beverly Barton's BEST ever!!! I read it in less
than 3 hours as I just did not want to put it down until I got to
the end! If you love thrillers....with a little bit of playful
sexual tension between characters then you need to read this book.
GREAT .......I would rate it 10 stars if I could!!! Kudos to Ms
Barton!!!...... GAIL L

How happy am I that I found "Beverly Barton"? I really liked this book. I read a lot and a lot of the books I've been reading are "ho hum". Not this one. It's a real page turner.

In the courtroom Quinn Cortez is a ruthless - take no prisoners - kinda lawyer. In his personal life he's a charming seducer that woman fall for immediately. Unfortunately the woman he is lover to are being brutally slaughtered. Quinn has blacked out for the murders being committed.

Annabelle Vanderley (from a very wealthy family) wants her murdered cousin Lulu's killer found and brought to justice. She and Quinn try to hire the same P.I. (the best in the country) to help solve the murder. She and Quinn are immediately attracted to one another and both try to ignore the attraction. He wants her. She's afraid he may have killed Lulu and then several of his past lovers also turn up brutally murdered.

If you want to be totally entertained, read this book. This was my first Beverly Barton book but it won't be my last. I'm a true fan. I haven't been this interested in an author since James Patterson.

I have always enjoyed Beverly Barton's books. This one was a little tedious. That could be because I enjoyed the slight supernatural aspect of her last series.
This story revolves around defense lawyer Quinn Cortez. He has a rep of being a ruthless womanizer who always gets what he wants. When his current and former lovers turn up murdered, he teams up with Annabelle Vanderley,a cousin to one of his former lovers, to find the killer.

High-powered attorney Quinn Cortez is planning on celebrating his latest victory with a private party at an old lover's house. But when Quinn arrives, he discovers that Lulu Vanderley has been murdered. Knowing that he will be a suspect, Quinn quickly arranges for counsel and decides to hire famed P.I. Griffin Powell to uncover the truth.

Annabelle Vanderley has been running her family's fortune for years. Her cousin's murder is a horrible blow to her beloved uncle Louis, so she decides to seek justice by hiring Griffin. With both the prime suspect and the family wanting him, Griffin proposes they combine resources. When another of Quinn's exes is murdered, it looks like the killer is connected to him. Despite police insistence that Quinn is the top suspect, Annabelle's instincts tell her he's innocent. But if she gets involved with Quinn, will that place her in the killer's sights?

I read a few pages last night but was distracted by the flashing tv set and couldn't seem to focus. It appears the "hero" of this one is a lawyer. Always a sure way to put me to sleep. I'll never finish this so I'll pass this along to someone who is waiting as I have way too many other books screaming my name!
