Overview

With Every Turn In The Case...

After moving from Los Angeles to Lake of the Ozarks, Missouri, homicide detective Claire Morgan has at last adjusted to the peaceful rhythms of rural life. Until a grisly celebrity murder at an ultra-exclusive “wellness” resort shatters a quiet summer morning...

With Every Twist Of The Mind...

One of Dr. Nicholas Black’s high-profile clients, a beautiful young soap opera star, has been found dead, taped to a chair at a fully set table -- submerged in the lake. Back in L.A., Claire investigated the rich, famous, and the deadly -- but she never expected the problems of the privileged to follow her to this sleepy small town. Just as she never imagined crossing the line with her prime suspect...

With Every Beat Of The Heart...

Immersed in the case, Claire finds herself drawn to the charismatic doctor, spending more and more time in his company -- and in his bed. Now, to catch a killer, Claire will have to enter the darkest recesses of the human mind. But is Black leading her there to help her -- or luring her ever deeper into a madman’s grip?

"A feisty new heroine to root for...Ladd is a bright new voice in suspense!" --Patricia Gaffney

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Romance novelist Ladd (White Orchid) makes a successful venture into thriller territory with this first in a series featuring Missouri homicide detective Claire Morgan. Canton County, located on the "Lake Tahoe of the Ozarks," is a relaxing beat for the former Los Angeles cop until a soap opera star, vacationing at an exclusive resort for the rich and richer, is found at the bottom of the lake-naked, taped to a chair and sitting at a fully set dinner table. As she pursues the investigation to Louisiana and California and back, Morgan herself is pursued by her prime suspect: the resort's handsome, charming owner, Dr. Nicholas Black, whose romantic advances may hide a dangerous agenda. Though Ladd saddles Morgan with an all-purpose tragic past and occasional logic-deficient reasoning, she's a smart, strong character capable enough to avoid the woman-in-distress scenarios her genre colleagues so typically fall into. Despite a propensity for caustic rambling, her tough-girl voice keeps the story moving toward a satisfying denouement with plenty of suspense and surprises. (Mar.)

    Will the anonymous person with the personal Vendetta again Harriet Klausner please cut it out already? If you don't like her posts then don't read them. Stop punishing the author with your one star rants.

    Stephie

    Will all of Harriet's bashers please shut up! It's YOUR choice whether or not to read Harstan's reviews. So who's at fault here, think about it. It's quite simple. Don't try to ban her for those of us who enjoy reading her reviews. I have for many years now, I know if Harriet enjoys a book I definitely will too. If I find a book I'm interested in, I always search for a review from her. So please grow up and leave Harriet, and those of us who appreciate her, alone. I'm sure BN also realizes that the choice to read her reviews is your's alone.

    Looks good

    I am excited by this freefriday book! But i would agree with those who complain about harriet. Her reviews are NOT reviews, they are more like a kids book report. She tells too many details. She fancies herself a book reviewer? She must or she wouldn't put in her name. I would recommend she take a look at professional reviews and learn from them. Maybe as a warning she should put her name at top of review so those of us who don't want book ruined can ignore.

    Ok then

    I'm going to be perfectly honest in my review, I couldn't get halfway through the book. It's much too graphic for me. I enjoyed the sitting and the plot in the first 80 pages I was intrigued and honestly enjoyed the book.....but then BAM!! Way to much for my too even try to imagine. Thanks though.

    amaaaazing read

    Seriously i was hooked from the first page and stayed hooked til the end..so much mystery and suspense. I didnt figure anything out until i was well into the book. I dont usually read books like this but after this one i think ill start..i doubt any other book will compare to this one tho..somethings are morbid and very much described so i would recommend to older readers..GREAT READ!!!!

    I just wet my pants!

    Wow... I dont know how else to describe this book... chilling is one good word to use... also disturbing, twisted, scary, gory, and certainly NOT a childrens book. 14+ only
    So all and all i liked this book mostly cuz the end is so unexpected and twisted AND depressing. I know it probably sounds like a bad book but for those who love mysterys, have a strong stomach and few emotions this is a great read:)

    Read this with the lights on!

    I have been a fan of thrillers for a long time, so I was excited to be introduced to this author on Free Friday. And I was not dissapointed! The sarcasm and attitude of protaganist Claire reminded me of Janet Evonovich's Stephanie Plum character , and the crime scene discriptions, and horror filled twists and turns were reminiscent of Patricia Cornwell and James Patterson novels. That being said everything was still quite fresh and unique. The action, gore, and twists definately kept me up at night with the light on, and made it hard to put this book down. Just enough romance w/o the graphic sex scenes of romance novels. My only complaint was that some plot lines got a bit unbelievable and I was also able to figure out the murderer half way through the book (but that could be b/c I have read alot of psychological thrillers & am getting good at spotting twists) I will be reading more from this author!

    This book was neither a detective thriller or humorous. It tried to address both aspects and failed on both. Wouldn't read any more books by this author.

    Not a bad book

    Worth reading. Not worth raving about. I AM SO GLAD Harriet Klausner no longer reviews books for B&N. I enjoyed this murder mystery. It is very violent and gory though. If you find this sort of writing disturbing, then this book is not for you. Some sexual situations, not explicit. Extreme child abuse of all types. For adult readers. A few events sickened me.

    I really enjoyed this book!  A thoroughly creepy plot with enough surprises to keep you turning the pages. I will definittely look for more of Linda Ladd's books. Oh and for everyone being harsh to the people who get upset about this Harriet person: they have every right. There is no excuse to give away spoilers about a book. That is what the AUTHOR is for, NOT a reviewer! Obviously, she gets some sort of twisted sense of power from it. Really immature. Anyway, read the book, it is enjoyable!!
