In a departure from the fantasy element of earlier novels, Ms. Shayne has delivered one of her best yet, a novel rich with spine-tingling mystery and an abundance of suspense.

Syracuse police detective Vince O¿Mally oversteps the bounds of his profession and becomes too involved in his latest case. Two children are found murdered, and the only clue he discovers is an old library edition of THE GINGERBREAD MAN. That one clue leads him to Dilmun, New York, a small town on Cayuga Lake.

There, Vince encounters Holly Newman, last-known borrower of THE GINGERBREAD MAN, and secretary to the Dilmun Chief of Police. Vince and Holly¿s paths keep crossing, and he senses that she could provide a connection to his recent case. Holly, deftly portrayed as the fragile, yet strong heroine, can¿t decide whether she is attracted to or disturbed by the very forthright Vince.

Suddenly, many of Holly¿s old fears return as strange happenings grip the town of Dilmun leaving Holly and Vince in the eye of the storm. With a truly skillful manifestation of clues and possible suspects, the reader is kept guessing as much as any of the players. As Holly and Vince get closer to the truth and to each other, an eerily familiar series of events forces Holly to come to terms with her past. Can they catch the killer before it is too late?

In some novels, the suspense is over long before the book is finished. Not so in this case, as the answer to ¿who done it?¿ is made known when it should be, at the novel¿s conclusion. The nail-biting conclusion will leave readers white-knuckled for some time to come.

True romance readers won¿t be disappointed, either, as the love scenes become more memorable because they are not overplayed. With sizzling love scenes and suspense that just won¿t quit, Ms. Shayne has created a praise-worthy novel truly deserving of its classification as romantic suspense.

But****** this was a very intriging book. At about page 168 there was a very graphic sex act. Totally unnecessary.. some foul language. Why do authors feel they have to include such filth. I will not read another of this author. If you can skip over a couple pages of filth the balan e of the book is good. 3 stars because they feel readers want this, think again,,!!!! Without tat it could have been a 5.

    Good book, disappointing ending

    This book started out so good - I couldn't put it down. But then 3/4 of the way through the book it became too predictable and I was very disappointed. it's like the author ran out of steam and just wanted to get it over with or something. Which is really too bad cause this book had fantastic potential.
