Overview


Gail Connor and Anthony Quintana make a combustible mix on many levels. Passionately attracted to each other on a personal level, they are equally passionate defenders of their clients even when their interests don’t always work in tandem. Set all this against the sultry background of a Miami that is riddled with crime and corruption, drowning in drugs, illegal immigrants and shady deals, simmering with a melting-pot clash of cultures and you have a recipe for highly entertaining, hotly explosive crime and justice. In the eighth title in the Suspicion series, SUSPICION OF RAGE, Gail Connor agrees to accompany her new husband, Anthony Quintana, to his beloved native Cuba. Caught between a family which supports the Revolution, ties to a radical underground group, a threatening secret message from the CIA to his brother-in-law, a Cuban General, threats of terrorism and a long-lost love, the hard-won peace of a new family is at risk.

    Very disappointing

    I found this book disappointing as compared to Ms. Parker's other books. The book dwells on Cuban politics to the degree that the murder/suicide is lost and the investigation is non-existent. The attempt to assassinate Anthony's brother-in-law was anti-climactic after the build-up through the book.

    fantastic thriller

    After a quickie marriage, Miami lawyers Gail Connor and Anthony Quintana plan to travel to Havana via Mexico so she can meet the Cuban branch of her new husband¿s family. They plan to stay at his sister Marta¿s house; she is married to General Ramirez Vega, a rising star in Castro¿s government. Anthony is also friends with political dissidents so he tries not to talk politics while he is there.--- This trip proves impossible because before he leaves a government investigator wants Anthony to persuade his brother-in-law to defect; they want him to verify what Major Omar Cespedes Ruzi, a Cuban defector, told them when he arrived in the United States. Gail and Anthony find that General Garcia, Romero¿s boss, wants Anthony to find out what Cespedes told government officials and he won¿t let them return home until he gets some answers. While these events are transpiring, dissidents in an underground cell plans to assassinate General Vega and one of these rebels has a very special relationship to Anthony.--- Unlike the previous books in this series, this novel takes place on Cuban soil and readers see how life is like for those who support the government and those who oppose it. Much against his will, Anthony is forced into the role of spy in order to keep America from invading Cuba. There is plenty of action in this romantic thriller but the heart of the story lies in Anthony¿s love for a Cuba that he was forced to leave when he was thirteen years old. SUSPICION OF RAGE is a fantastic thriller that will grab and keep reader interest.--- Harriet Klausner
