Detectives Duncan Hatcher and DeeDee Bowen are incensed that a mistrial was ruled in the murder trial of Savannah businessman Robert Savich because the key witness was killed. Judge Cato Laird had no choice because there was very little evidence but Duncan knows the drug czar ordered the hit. A few days later they are called to the judge¿s home where Cato¿s wife Elise killed a burglar in self-defense. --- It looks like an open and shut case but both Duncan and DeeDee feel that there is more to the story than meets the eye. This looks like a homicide and when Elise is called in for questioning, she goes to Duncan to tell him that her husband is trying to kill her. Although he is attracted to her, he doesn¿t believe her following a sexual encounter, Elise disappears after once again meeting with Duncan and finding the dead body of the private detective her husband hired to follow her to see if she was having an affair. Evidence points to Elise drowning in the river and certain pictures come to light that have Savich and Elise meeting several times. Duncan is determined to find out the truth about both to assuage his guilty conscience. --- Nobody writes suspense thrillers the way Sandra Brown does. Elise is a character shrouded in mystery leaving the audience to wonder if she is a clever murderer or an innocent dupe. Duncan¿s feelings for her and the sexual encounters make his come down harder on her than he normally would. His need to find answers about the connections between all the players makes for an exciting reading experience. --- Harriet Klausner

not as good as recomended

I did like the book but I had 3-men tell me this was one of the BEST books they have ever read so I thought well it must be great. This is my first Sandra Brown book and I will try another one but ricochet was not that great to me.

    what a disappointment

    I couldn't believe that this was wrote by Sandra Brown. It was just terrible. I couldn't get into it. I hope that her writing doesn't continue in this format.

    Where is the REAL Sandra Brown

    I could NOT get into this book. This is the first SB book that I could not finish. I felt cheated! No way could this be Sandra Brown.

    What happened???

    I have read many Sandra Brown books in the past, but this one did not live up to her earlier works. Her use of extreme swearing was very offensive and showed a serious lack of intelligence on the part of the author, not to mention making her characters appear weak and unlikeable. If her work continues on this line, I will probably stop reading her books.

    disappointed

    there is just some things,you just would not do with a person that you truly dislike --- and that is what makes this story not so good (sicking).How could you care about a person that could go that far (unbeliveable, unlikeable).

    Suspense Is Not Her Strength

    Being a huge fan of Sandra Brown and very open to her repeated attempts over the years of moving from her specialty of romance into the suspense arena, I find her strength is romance. With the exception of 'Chill Factor' which I found to be an excellent book & renewed my hope that she's finally getting the hang of this transition from romance into suspense, Ricochet proved me wrong once again. I use to find every one of her books a huge struggle just to put down, now I find her books a huge struggle just to finish. I'll read a few pages, then go about my day...and that makes me sad. I continue to look forward to her new releases, though what was once a sure thing with her romance, it's hit or miss with her suspense.
