Palindrome

When both your past and future spell fear.

Award-winning author Stuart Woods has crafted a masterful novel no reader will soon forget. For years, Liz Barwick has been battered by her brutal husband, a famous pro football player. This time it takes an emergency room to keep her from death. Now the beautiful and talented photographer retreats to an island paradise off Georgia’s coast to find solitude—and herself.

As she becomes increasingly involved with the strange and handsome twin scions of the powerful Drummond family, she feels her traumatic memories begin to fade. But when a killer launches a series of gruesome murders, Liz discovers that there is no place to hide—not even in her lover's arms.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Liz Barwick's tranquil life on an island off the Georgia coast turns nightmarish after a tragic secret two decades old is unearthed and her ex-husband, a steroid-crazed NFL star, goes on a murderous rampage. A ``fast-paced, multilevel tale of mystery and revenge,'' said PW. ``In a suspenseful--albeit telegraphed--final encounter, one deadly monster destroys another.'' (Nov.)
Library Journal
Successful photographer Elizabeth Barwick is almost battered to death by her superstar pro-football player husband. To escape his vengeance, she accepts an offer to photograph Cumberland, a beautiful barrier island off the coast of Georgia. The novel's first four chapters are outstanding, describing Elizabeth's relationships with her husband and hotshot divorce lawyer, episodes which reveal her strength of mind and capture the reader's loyalty and interest. With her arrival on Cumberland however, the pace slows, a love interest with his own quirky past appears, and the story changes so radically the book reads like two separate novels. Attempts to fuse these elements with the reappearance of the psychotic husband don't succeed. This novel can't compare with the author's Chiefs ( LJ 5/1/81), but Woods's wide readership will want to make up their own minds.-- Lydia B. Johnson, Mesa P.L., Ariz.
