Dr. Eleanor Grayson serves as the large animal doctor at the biggest veterinary hospital in Tennessee, Creature Comfort. Now she is placed in charge of the new farm program at the local prison where she meets Steve Chadwick, who has spent three years in jail convicted of homicide. He was mourning the death of his spouse when he was convicted of killing her.

Steve lives for one thing, vengeance on the individual who murdered his wife and shredded his business, his former partner and brother-in-law. This obsession is all that keeps Steve sane and alive until he meets Eleanor. The two are attracted to one another, but neither wants it. Eleanor is just another obstacle in the way of Steve completing his agenda. Steve cannot replace Eleanor¿s beloved deceased husband. Then there is the extra impediment of he being a guest and employee of the state.

Though not quite as remarkable as the incredibly insightful THE MONEY MAN, Carolyn Mcsparren¿s latest tale, THE PAYBACK MAN, remains a powerful novel. Once again the story line provides a strong case for animal rights inside a romantic suspense novel starring two of life¿s walking wounded. The support cast augments the plot with depth enabling a multi-layered plot, yet the forbidden love between the lead characters makes this robust book worth reading.
