Karen Whitlaw travels to New Orleans to identify the body of her estranged father. While there she meets Detective Marc Chastain who is investigating her father's murder. Marc helps Karen with her father's funeral arrangements and they soon begin a relationship. But when Karen returns to her home in Ohio, strange "accidents" begin to happen. Karen realizes that someone wants her dead and quickly heads back to New Orleans to get help from Marc.

I usually love Linda Howard's books, but this one wasn't a favorite. The story is interesting and it kept me turning pages; but we know the identity of the villain from the beginning of the book so there is really no mystery for us to figure out. There also seemed to be an overload of secondary characters who took up half the pages of the book. I did enjoy both Mark and Karen. He was a great hero who knew what he wanted. Karen (thankfully) was a strong heroine with no TSTL moments. My rating: 3.5 Stars.
