Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Brown's latest thriller, in which an idealistic public defender discovers a terrible secret about her new husband, spent 11 weeks on PW's bestseller list. (July)
Library Journal
Brown's 16 appearances on the New York Times Best Sellers list gives instant appeal to this forthcoming tale of a young woman who testifies against a pair of white supremacists-who just happen to be her ex-husband and father-in-law. A Literary Guild and Doubleday Book Club main selection.
Mary Frances Wilkens
Kendall Deaton wants to be the best public defender the town of Prosper, South Carolina, has ever seen. She figures her dream is in the bag; she is married to the handsome newspaper editor, her father-in-law is a well-respected and popular man in the community, and the downtrodden of Prosper need a devoted advocate. What Kendall doesn't expect, though, is a town so entrenched in bigotry and "perfection" that she soon becomes the enemy, even to her new family. The book opens as Kendall pulls herself from the wreckage of a serious car accident. In the hospital, Kendall is careful not to disclose the true past of the seriously injured male driver; she tells the hospital personnel that he's her husband, and even though he's suffering from amnesia, he knows it is not true. Brown unfolds the story by alternating between the present and the past, keeping the reader guessing what's what all along. Though not an elegant writer, this prolific author writes a true page-turner that is recommended for fans of graphic crime fiction.
From the Publisher
"This page-turner is a must on any summer beach reading list and a testament to Brown's gifts as a talented storyteller."
-USA Today"

Through a mosaic of tantalizing clues, premonitions, and withheld identities, Brown has created another page-turner to ensure her phenomenal popularity...Secrets keep popping out until the last page. Brown's forte is glitch-free, all-over-the-map plotting."
