Overview

In her gripping novels, New York Times bestselling author Carla Neggers combines action, intrigue, romance and adventure like no one else...

Archaeologist Sarah Dunnemore is prepared for almost anything when she returns to her family home in Night's Landing, Tennessee...except the news that her twin brother, Rob, has just been seriously wounded in a sniper attack in Central Park. She rushes to New York to be with him, only to come up against no-nonsense Nate Winter, who was slightly wounded in the attack. In his work as a deputy U.S. marshal, Nate is the best, but he's willing to break the rules to track down his and Rob's would-be killer. Nate believes the official investigation is going in the wrong direction--especially when he learns that Sarah is like a surrogate daughter and a confidante to her family's famous Night's Landing neighbor--the president of the United States.

When Nate suspects that Sarah has held back crucial information, he follows her to Night's Landing. Because Nate will let nothing--not his and Sarah's growing attraction for each other, not the mounting danger they face--stand in the way of the truth. But in a place filled with betrayal, greed and long-held secrets, truth is guarded with a deadly vengeance.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
This middling romantic suspense novel from Neggers revolves around the mysterious parentage of United States President Wesley Poe, who, as an infant, had been left on the doorstep of two spinster sisters. After deputy U.S. marshal Nate Winter (brother to the heroine from Neggers's previous offering, Cold Ridge) and his partner, deputy Rob Dunnemore, are shot and wounded in Central Park, Nate tries to find out who would want them dead and why. He soon learns that Rob may have been the killer's primary target since his prominent Tennessee family has strong ties to President Poe, and his twin sister Sarah, a historical archaeologist, is working on a documentary of Poe's life. When a threatening letter suggests that Sarah may be next on the shooter's hit list, Sarah and Nate hole up at Night's Landing, her family's rural Tennessee home. Both the romance and mystery are lukewarm, and Neggers ties up the story's loose ends in an uninspired, journalistic fashion. However, an intriguing cast of characters including a bottom-feeding tabloid reporter constantly lurking in the shadows, a property manager who definitely is not who he seems and an expatriate looking for a presidential pardon lends complexity to this romantic intrigue. Agent, Meg Ruley. (May) Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.

Chapter One

After ninety minutes, the press conference dribbled to a close. As far as Nate Winter was concerned, the whole thing could have been wrapped up in fifteen minutes, tops. Announce the results of the joint fugitive task force. Outline its future. Answer a few questions.

Done.

But reporters had an uncanny ability of coming up with another way of asking what they'd just asked and politicians of saying what they'd just said. And the FBI, U.S. Marshals Service and New York Police Department brass wanted their fair share of credit. Deservedly so, maybe, but Nate just wanted to get back to work.

He cleared out of the airless meeting room on the ground floor of a fancy Central Park South hotel - the choice of the mayor's office - and made his way out to the street, welcoming the blast of chilly New York air.

It was midday. Traffic was bad. Some of the pedestrians had unfurled their umbrellas, but it wasn't really raining. Just misting, not even drizzling. People were craving real spring air - it was the first week in May - but it felt like March again.

Rob Dunnemore, a fellow deputy U.S. marshal, stood next to Nate and hunched his shoulders against the cold. "My southern blood is protesting."

Nate glanced at his younger colleague. They both had on their best dark suits, plus their nine-millimeter semiautomatics, their cuffs, their badges - the hardware wasn't visible, but Nate doubted they could pass for New York businessmen, either. "Air feels good to me."

"It would. I'll bet the snow hasn't melted where you come from."

Cold Ridge, New Hampshire, in the heart of the White Mountains. Nate hadn't been home since his sister Carine's wedding in February. "My uncle tells me there's still snow on the ridge. It's melted in the valleys."

"The frozen north." Rob gave an exaggerated shiver. He had the kind of blond good looks and southern charm tinged with danger that had an irresistible effect on the female support staff - and more than one female marshal. "New York's plenty cold enough for me. Come on. I need a dose of springtime. Let's check out the tulips in Central Park."

"Tulips? Dunnemore, what the hell are you talking about?"

"I saw about a million tulips when I was in Holland a couple weeks ago visiting my folks." He gave Nate an unabashed grin. "I'm kind of into them right now."

Before Nate could respond, Dunnemore seized on a break in traffic and jaywalked across Central Park South. Nate, who was taller and lankier, followed at a slower pace, still unaccustomed to his fellow deputy's wide range of interests. He had no idea how or why Rob Dunnemore had ended up in the U.S. Marshals Service, never mind being assigned to its southern New York district. The Dunnemores were a prominent Tennessee family - Rob had been educated at private schools in Nashville and Washington, D.C., and graduated from Georgetown. He'd done a year abroad. Paris. He'd been everywhere and spoke six or seven languages, including Arabic and Farsi. Sooner or later, someone in Washington would reel him in and put him to work in intelligence.

After just four months in New York, Rob noticed everything. After five years, Nate didn't even notice the noise and grime anymore. He liked the city, but he didn't delude himself. He wasn't staying there. There was talk of sitting him at a desk at USMS headquarters in Arlington, Virginia. It would be a major promotion after more than a dozen years in street law enforcement.

He and Rob walked down the steps at Fifth Avenue and Fifty-ninth Street and entered the normally busy southeast corner of the park. But on such a miserable day, it was quiet, the noontime traffic above them almost distant, as if they'd entered an oasis in the middle of the tall buildings and millions of people.

The grass was lush and green, the spring leaves thickening on the trees and brush on the steep bank along the Central Park South fence and the famous elliptical-shaped pond. There was just enough of a drizzle to cause pinpricks across the pond's gray water.

"The tulips are something, aren't they?" Rob walked up the gently curving path along the edge of the pond. "My sister says they're done for in Tennessee."

"Rob, Christ. I've got work to do. I can't be wasting time looking at flowers."

"What's the matter? We hard-ass marshals can't appreciate tulips?"

Nate made himself take in the thousands of tulips that blossomed in waves on the sloping lawn to the right of the path, opposite the pond. Dark pink, light pink, white - they added a cheerful touch of color against the gloom. "All right. I've appreciated the tulips."

"When do tulips bloom in New Hampshire? July?"

"We're a couple weeks behind New York."

Probably more than a couple weeks this year, according to his uncle. Even for a tried-and-true northern New Englander like Gus Winter, it had been a long winter. More snow than normal, more days with temperatures that fell below zero - and a Valentine's Day wedding in the middle of it. The second of Nate's younger sisters, Carine, and her childhood friend, Tyler North, had finally married. They'd almost made it to the altar the previous Valentine's Day, but called the wedding off at the last moment. It had taken a murder in Boston and a dangerous showdown with a madman on infamous Cold Ridge in the White Mountains before they came to their senses and finally married.

The previous October, Nate's other younger sister, Antonia, had married Hank Callahan, now the junior U.S. senator from Massachusetts.

No one had said, "Two down, one to go," but Nate had heard the words in his mind. He had no intention of getting married while he was still working on the streets. He'd been orphaned as a little boy. He liked not having anyone worrying about whether he'd come home that night. A wife, kids. A dog. He didn't even own a cat.

    Kept it Real!

    I loved this book! Not one of my top five's but it was sexy and i loved the mystery about it! I liked how she made the characters so mysterious like the gardner and Conroy. She made you think and i was always wondering who was behind the Central Park Shooting. Great characters and great chemistry between Nate and Sarah! Awesome stuff!

    Lots of characters.

    Historical Archaeologist Sarah Dunnemore returns from Scotland to her family home in Night's Landing, Tennessee, expecting to relax a bit before deciding what to do next with her career. Just as she settles in, Sarah receives a phone call that alters her life. Her twin brother, Deputy U.S. Marshal Rob Dunnemore, has just been shot by a sniper in Central Park. Rob's partner and friend, Nate Winter, was also shot at the time but his wound is minor and he is released from the hospital quickly. ........................ Sarah leaves her family home in the care of Ethan, the handyman, and rushes to New York. There she meets another deputy U.S. Marshal, Juliet Longstreet, who used to date Rob. Juliet is Sarah's constant escort while in N.Y. Then there is Nate. Nate believes the FBI investigators have the wrong suspect, who is conveniently dead, as the sniper. ........................ Rob convinces Sarah to return to Night's Landing. However, she finds a letter from Rob's would-be killer and Nate sprints to her side. Nate is determined to locate who the sniper really is and to protect Sarah. There are plenty of questions but few answers. Who is the sniper? Will he try again to kill Rob? Will he go after Sarah next? Was the shooting related to the Dunnemore's close friendship with U.S. President John Wesley Poe? And most importantly, could Nate open up to Sarah and take a chance on their growing attraction? ........................ **** There are several other characters and for awhile I was overwhelmed with figuring out who everyone was and how they figured into the story. So if you do not like books that have several things going on at once and lots of characters to keep up with, pass on this one. However, if you want a suspenseful story that tests your crime solving wits, this book is for you! Here is a brisk who-dunnit story that will keep you reading until the very end! ****

    Great storytelling

    Following an overkill press conference of the joint fugitive task force, US Marshals Rob Dunnemore and Nate Winter are enjoying a walk in Central Park when a sniper shoots both law enforcement officials with the former critically hurt. While Nate struggles to keep his partner alive and locate the killer, Rob¿s sister historical archaeologist Sarah Dunnemore is taking a slight breather after completing her Poe family project with the documentary that goes back to the roots in Scotland..................................... When Sarah learns that her twin is injured, she leaves her home in Night's Landing, Tennessee to be at her side in a Manhattan hospital. There she meets by the rules Nate, who is obsessed with finding the assassin who escaped the park. Though out of character, he is very attracted to his partner¿s sibling but, Nate believes she has insider information involving her Tennessee neighbor and sometime resident, the President of the United States that ties back to his investigation. He will not allow even the woman he loves to escape his scrutiny whether she is in Night¿s Landing, New York City or some remote historical site for she is the key to unraveling who paid the killer.............................. NIGHT¿S LANDING is an exhilarating police procedural romance with political elements that raise the tension, but also distracts from the prime two subplots of searching for a killer and of course the love story. Carla Neggers provides terrific counterpoints whether it is locations or just looking at tulips when blood abruptly flows. The lead couple is a delight as hardboiled Nate seems like Sam Spade refusing to let even love from stopping him from obtaining the truth......................... Harriet Klausner

    TERRIFIC, ROMANTIC, SUSPENSEFUL

    Carla Neggers has once again given us a book whose characters have depth and soul. Her story full of suspense, political intrigue and romance keeps you turning pages until the wee hours of the morn. Nate our hero who does things his way to get the truth and apprehend the bad guy. Sarah our heroine who has her own secrets and agenda. Nate and Sarah are the cake, the other characters the icing. If you're looking for a great read you need look no further than Night's Landing. Ms. Negger's story telling is superb.
