Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly

At the start of this scintillating slice of romantic suspense from prolific bestseller Roberts (Sweet Revenge), Lt. Phoebe MacNamara, the chief hostage negotiator for the Savannah, Ga., PD, meets Duncan Swift, a sports bar owner, as they both try to prevent a suicidal bartender Duncan fired from jumping off a roof on St. Patrick's Day. In the aftermath, a romance develops between Phoebe and Duncan, though in typical Roberts style the enigmatic Phoebe's devotion to career and family, who include a young daughter and an agoraphobic mother, creates tension in their relationship. After Phoebe survives a vicious attack within her own precinct house by an unknown assailant, it becomes clear that someone is intent on harming Phoebe and those close to her. A courageous protagonist, deft plotting and the sultry Savannah backdrop all add up to another winner for consummate storyteller Roberts. (July)

Phoebe MacNamara is the top hostage negotiator on the Savannah police force, but she has yet to deal with the guy who assaulted her at her precinct house and is now leaving nasty notes at her door. Literary Guild and Doubleday Book Club main selections. Copyright 2007 Reed Business Information.
Library Journal

Phoebe MacNamara found her calling when she was a hostage at the age of 12: she now is Savannah, GA, PD's top negotiator. She crosses paths with Duncan Swift while talking down a jumper who was one of his former employees. Duncan is intrigued by Phoebe's drive and commitment, and she feels the same way about him, but she comes with a lot of baggage, including an agoraphobic mother and a seven-year-old daughter. Worse, lurking around the corner is someone who wants Phoebe to pay for past sins, and he doesn't care who dies in the process. Narrator Susan Ericksen wrings tears and laughter and incites anger and fear all with impressive ease. She becomes Phoebe, while her Duncan is suave, fun, ambitious, and smart, rolled into an attractive package. His drawl is a constant comfort. Roberts created a blockbuster, and Ericksen amplifies it with spot-on narration. Essential for public libraries.
—Jodi L. Israel

Kirkus Reviews
Murder mixes with anguish in steamy Savannah. FBI-trained hostage negotiator Phoebe MacNamara is a lieutenant in the Savannah police department. Ever since Phoebe and her family were held hostage when she was 12, her mother has been agoraphobic, and Phoebe and her brother Carter still bear the psychological scars, but Phoebe's used the memory to hone her skills. While talking a suicidal bartender off a ledge, she meets his boss, Duncan Swift. The charming millionaire coaxes her into meeting for a drink, and their relationship slowly deepens. But life takes a turn for the worse when a misogynist cop botches a hostage situation. Suspended, he blames Phoebe and retaliates by viciously attacking her in the precinct house stairwell. He loses his job, but his father's connections keep him out of jail. Phoebe is physically and mentally injured, but her family and her blossoming relationship with Duncan help her cope until a dangerous pattern develops: A strange man keeps crossing her path. Dead animals begin appearing on her doorstep. A hostage taker is shot after she talks him into surrendering. Her ex-husband is brutally murdered by the mystery man, who phones her with sadistic threats. Is it the spiteful disgraced cop or someone from her past? Phoebe must identify the killer before he can carry out his final outrage. Nerve-wracking suspense leavened with romance and spiced with sex: another hit for the prolific Roberts (Blue Smoke, 2005, etc.). Agent: Amy Berkower/Writers House LLC

    Not one of Nora's best

    I love Nora Roberts! She is predictably good at writing thrilling romance novels, some novels are more thrilling than others though and during the mid 2000s she hit a bit of a slump. High Noon was not her greatest effort. It was not a page turner, at least not in a good way. I kept turning pages knowing with each page I turned I was closer to the end of this story. It was too long with too little thrill and to be blunt too little passion. One of Roberts' greatest strengths is that she is able to consistently create characters with amazing chemistry, these characters just didn't have it. This will not dissuade me from reading more of her books. She was more than due for a dud.

    Not Great

    Despite being a very long book (nearly 500 pages) this story had zero character development and the ending came out of nowhere. We are told that Phoebe, the main character, is really strong and tough at least a hundred times. Then there are the cliched stock characters: her crazy Southern family, adorable daughter, sexist police colleague, token African-American lawyer friends, and, of course, the attractive, supportive, rich new boyfriend who does nothing but live off his lottery winnings and admire Phoebe's sexy toughness. Yawn. Nora Roberts has written some great, three-dimensional characters in the past (see Birthright) but this mishmash won't please anyone. The book isn't romantic enough to satsify romance novel fans, not authentically gritty enough to please fans of mysteries and police procedurals, and not well-written enough to impress readers of weightier fiction. I think Nora is talented, but this book is not her best work by far.

    Avid Roberts Fan!!

    Just put away my copy of HIGH NOON.And very disappointed!! Ms. Roberts books have consistently been books in the 'can't put down' category for me. Sadly not this one. Of course I will read her next novel.'It can't be as boring!' I know she wont disappoint me again!!

    Nora Roberts' Audio Books Rock

    Listening to books on disc is my new passion. The voice quality of the readers is wonderful. I listen most of the time in my car as I drive. This offers a great alternative to radio and cd listening. Brilliance Audio does a quality job of pacing and pausing as the series of discs complete. I recommend the unabridged versions rather than the abridged. The books are intriguing and wonderful to listen too. If you enjoy reading Nora Roberts, you will most definitely enjoy listening to her stories read aloud.

    Exciting read

    This is one of many books that have made Nora Roberts one of my favorite authors of all time. Phoebe McNamara is a wonderful and strong character who is very close with her young daughter and her mother who is afraid of leaving the house. It has a great story line, great sex, and awesome characters. Another must read from Nora Roberts!!

    Nice summer read.

    This really was a wonderful book. Easy read. I really liked the main character. This book is a page turner. I couldn't wait to see what would happen next. The love story way wrapped very nicely around the main idea of the story. I thought this gave a very interesting view of the life of a negotiator. This book shows the challenges of being a single parent, working, and dating. I would recommend this book. Nora Roberts does it again.

    What we do for love

    I've just finished reading High Noon. It's an intense and clever reading. I enjoyed the relationship between Duncan and Phoebe: two people with big hearts and real problems.. The antagonists were brutal and sinister, too. I enjoyed the novel. Yes,it's another page turner for Nora Roberts.

    High Noon

    Forgot how much I loved reading Nora Roberts. This book is a "can't put it down" one. Once again, the plot and the characters hold your attention till the very end. The mystery with the romance keeps the balance perfect. not too much of either. Great read. Highly recommend.

    Not awful but not particularly good either

    I won't review the plot as it's already been done. However, the plot is the biggest problem I have because it was weak at best, nonexistent at worst. Most of the book was about Ben, Phoebe and her family with some hostage rescue taking place. It was towards the end that it came out she was being stalked by a killer, not who had harassed her off and on throughout the book. Also, all the people being in the same place, and not knowing each other, at the end of book was totally unbelievable. Duncan was too good to be true. Rich, handsome, athletic, smart honest, brave, etc. And loving Phoebe's dysfunctional family (hers tops mine in the dysfunctional which is hard to believe) and wanting to take on their problems from the beginning isn't very realistic.

    Very disappointed

    I'm a huge Nora Roberts fan! I've read all her books. I was so disappointed in High Noon. What happened? It's almost as if someone else wrote it. Too much dialog and not enough action. Wait until it comes out in paper back, pick it up on used book store.

    Where's the suspense?

    Normally I love Nora Roberts' writing, but High Noon just isn't keeping my attention. I'm only halfway through and I'm bored. The writing jumps around, never building suspense and the only character I find enjoyable is Duncan. I don't find the obscure, High Noon whistling character threatening at all, and I think he is probably going to be pivotal to the predictable showdown at the end. I'm going to slog through to the end - maybe it will redeem itself.

    Savannah Police Lieutenant Phoebe MacNamara is the Georgia city¿s top hostage negotiator. Her work is how she meets sports bar owner Duncan Swift when he observes her talk a leaper whom he just fired from jumping. Unable to resist this fascinating woman, Duncan romances her although Phoebe's family baggage, her young daughter and her agoraphobic mother causes difficulty in their relationship. At the police station, someone assaults Phoebe battering her after he or she put a hood over her head so she cannot identify who her attacker is. She is stunned as this is the last place she would expect anyone to be so brazen. She looking deep inside herself and remembers when she was a child and she and her family were terrorized by a dangerous intruder in their home. Phoebe refuses to back down and become a victim though she is very shook up. When the terror campaign continues with threats to her loved ones, the frustrated Phoebe decides to uncover the culprit so that she can get into his or her face before her fears of harm to her loved ones cripple her. --- This is a one sitting action-packed thriller that grips the audience from the moment they meet the intrepid Phoebe and never slows down until the final confrontation with her unknown adversary. The entertaining cat and mouse police procedural story line is gripping because the beleaguered heroine is likable while her anonymous antagonist remains shadowy adding tension. Fans of Ms. Roberts or anyone who appreciates a tense HIGH NOON drama will want to read Ms. Roberts¿ strong Savannah saga. --- Harriet Klausner
