At first I saw Lethal on the rack and wondered if I would want to pick it up. After Tough Customer I was hesitant and not because it was a bad book which is far from the truth, but I wasn’t sure if it would be a roller coaster. Lethal had its ups and downs but there was not so much betrayal on the main characters which I liked.
Honor Gillette and her daughter Emily lived alone after her husband was killed in a fatal car accident. Her world will get turned upside down though when she encounters a man who just killed seven people.
Lee Corban is wanted for murder but he wouldn’t go down without a fight. He is looking for something which will tie everything together and he hopes that Eddie Gillette’s widow, Honor, will provide him with the answers.
With cops and FBI agents looking everywhere, Corban must make a decision and that is to take Honor and Emily with him before anyone else has to die.
This novel was fantastic. I loved it and did not want to put it down. Sandra Brown delivers books which are sometimes tough to read because they are not always romance but mystery or action adventure where the characters are not always at a happy ending.
Her characters were well written and intriguing to read about. I loved the twist and the betrayal as you were not sure who did what and who the person really was. The ending I thought wasn’t going to go how you wanted but it left it open and to a happy ending a reader can imagine which I liked.
I can’t wait for the next novel by Sandra Brown.
