Good book. Author made you care about the main charactors and want to know what happens to them as they go through some unusual twists and turns. There are some sex scenes that got a little too detailed. I'm not a prude and they certainly didn't take away from the story but I have a 12 year old granddaughter who loves to read and always tries to read what Grandma's reading and frankly I didn't want to have to go there with her. I can't recommend leaving this book laying around if you have a young bookworm nearby. : )

Another superb mystery/romance from Sandra Brown. It kept me guessing until the very end. Both of the main characters, a newspaper reporter and a police detective. are involved in mysterious, but separate ,circumstances which bring them together. It contains a more involved story line than other of Brown's novels.

I just don't know where to start---this is such a well written story that you are hooked from the very beginning, the plot is good and easy to follow, the characters are so clear you can almost see them, it never gets bogged down with too much of anything, it has just the right amount of the story, the sex, the twist, the story, the twist again, this is one book that Sandra Brown didn't get carried away with 6 pages of one sex scene and it is a much better story to stick with, it is hard to put down for any reason.

This was a excellent, enteraining, exciting read. It was the first one that I read of this author. It is full of twists and turns right up to the very end of the novel. The story is set in Charleston, S.C. There is major fire. Serveral peaple are killed in it. There are four hero's who did their best to save people or did they. This is a story of corruption, berayal,deception, and murder. I highly recommend this book.

Just finished reading this book and enjoyed it so much.
Sandra Brown is a great author but she has out done her
self on this one. You just can't put the book down and
before you know it you have finished it. Keeps in suspense.

I'll tell you something...I would never want to get into an argument with Sandra Brown. She'd just twist me into a pretzel without even trying! SMOKE SCREEN proves this, with its 3-dimensional characters, reasoned (if outrageous) behaviors and truly twisty plot

From back cover: When newswoman Britt Shelley wakes up to find herself in bed beside Charleston PD detective Jay Burgess, she remembers nothing of how she got there--or how he wound up dead. Burgess was one of four heroic city officials who risked their lives five years earlier to lead others to safety from a catastrophic fire that his lifelong friend, Raley Gannon, was later assigned to investigate. But Raley never finished the inquiry 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 the more Raley and Britt discover about that fateful day, the more perilous their situation becomes, until they're not only chasing the truth but running for their lives.
