Overview

Lethal by Sandra Brown

When her four year old daughter informs her a sick man is in their yard, Honor Gillette rushes out to help him. But that "sick" man turns out to be Lee Coburn, the man accused of murdering seven people the night before. Dangerous, desperate, and armed, he promises Honor that she and her daughter won't be hurt as long as she does everything he asks. She has no choice but to accept him at his word.

But Honor soon discovers that even those close to her can't be trusted. Coburn claims that her beloved late husband possessed something extremely valuable that places Honor and her daughter in grave danger. Coburn is there to retrieve it — at any cost. From FBI offices in Washington, D.C., to a rundown shrimp boat in coastal Louisiana, Coburn and Honor run for their lives from the very people sworn to protect them, and unravel a web of corruption and depravity that threatens not only them, but the fabric of our society

I loved this book. It's been a long time since I have read a book that I couldn't put it down. I like most of Sandra Browns books but this one is one of the better ones. Can't wait for the next one

I absolutely loved this book! She is one of my top ten favorite authors. She is the master of tease - that name has followed her from critics, and this book is no different. I loved it, and was kept in complete suspense mode from beginning to end. I highly recommend it. All wonderful characters and superb dialogue!!!!!!!!!! I also Loved THE CHATEAU by C D Swanson. A masterpiece of suspense and twists and turns. This fairly newcomer, Swanson is already on my top ten list! She knows how to keep the reader riveted, and kept me guessing throughout the entire book. This should be a movie! LOVED IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

When Honor Gillette's young daughter discovers an injured man in the front yard, Honor runs out to help. The man turns out to be Lee Coburn... accused of murdering 7 people the night before. Dangerous, desperate & armed, he promises Honor that she and her daugjter won't be hurt as long as she does everything he asks. Honor has no choice but to accept him at his word. This story takes many twists and turns... many of them difficult to follow at times. Many characters evolve, some with multiple identites. If you can sit down and read uninterrupted, the story isn't quite as confusing... however I found myself re-reading several chapters. Overall, it's a good read with a nice surprise ending. A bit expensive on the Nook... just a few dollars less than buying the hardback.

What makes a writer of romance novels think that her readers, primarily women, want to read a story about violence to both women and children with a questionable hero and a very naive and souless supporting cast. For once, I found a Sandra Brown book very easy to put down and hard to pick up again. The only thing that kept me reading was the assurance that the book would end somewhat happily in a Shakespearen tragedy sort ot way. Even the ending left me feeling like we were deprived of at least a decent wrap up-how were Honor and Colton going to resolve their disparate life-styles, would they marry, where would they live, would Colton completely recover etc? Next time I will wait for the reviews before I run out and buy one of her books hot off the press.

This book starts off good but falls apart with the villain in the story. Okay so she doesn't have to tell you if it's a male or female character but in the end it just doesn't make sense and the author does little to make it believable ( or to me at any rate ) I expect more from Sandra Brown with stories like Rainwater ......I loved that book!

Great book rotton ending. The author sold out. Do not know if I will ever buy another book from her.

This is my least favorite book I've read by Sandra Brown. Even though I hadn't figured out who The Bookkeeper was, the whole plot was just sort of anticlimactic. Top it off with the fact that the ending was just stupid. I read it twice because I was sure I had missed something, but no. The ending is just dumb and disappointing. Overall, this book is a big letdown when I think about what I expect to read in a Sandra Brown book.

Excellent character development for Coburn & Honor, however, no matter how great two-thirds of this book was, the villain made absolutely no sense & the ending was an insulting "leave it up to your imagination". Really? If I wanted to leave it up to my imagination, I would have no reason to read the book. Storytelling includes a complete ending! I've been a devoted fan for years. Disappointing...

I dropped my rating from a 5 to a 3 purely because of the disappointment at the ending of this book. I expected anything, something at the end of this great read, but I was left with nothing. I'm not a huge fan of becoming a part of a story and then left to come up w/ my own ending. If a writer is going to tell me a story, get me involved as Ms. Brown did, then please throw me a bone at the end - one sentence would suffice as another reviewer put it... then he saw them.. 4 little words could have made all the difference.

As expected with any Sandra Brown novel, this was a great read with lots of twists and turns.

In Tambour, Louisiana, four year old Emily Gillette informs her mother Honor that a stranger dripping blood is in their yard. Assuming her daughter's imagination is running wild, the Widow Honor checks anyway. Holding a gun Lee Coburn is fleeing from the police who believe he killed seven people on a mass murder spree. Coburn searches her home hoping to find a clue left there by Honor's late husband Eddie a cop who dies in a car accident two years ago. He fails to find what he seeks. Eddie's father sends the cops to check on his granddaughter, but Coburn is already gone. However, he shoots a cop Fred who he swears to Honor was sent there by the Bookkeeper who runs illegal trafficking and owns the local police, including Coburn believes her husband. This is an exciting thriller that grips the audience from the moment Coburn points his gun at the frightened mom and never slows down even with some intriguing subplots involving other people. The entertaining story line is character driven by the mom who must decide between believing an accused mass murder who claims her late spouse was dirty and the cops including her husband she has known all her life. Although the tale follows the anticipated course, fans will enjoy the visit to Tambour, the Gulf and DC with Sandra Brown as the tour guide. Harriet Klausner

Awesome!!! If you want a book with twists and turns that you can't put down, this is the book for you. Even with all the action, drama and twists, the story is still believable and draws you in until you just can't stop reading. One of her best.

I normally enjoy Sandra Brown's books but her last two Tough Customer and Lethal have been a disappointment. The endings in both these books are terrible. I hope some future book holds a closure for these characters. I will be hesitant to buy another book written by Sanda Brown for fear she will leave me deprived of a decent ending once again..

Loved it and I'm glad I didn't listen to the reviews I read. The book kept me reading all night and the end took nothing from it. Instead the end says, "anything is possible".

Ok this has to be one of the best books I've read in the mystery genre hands down, Sandra Brown is a master of the craft and this book is a testament to that :) if you haven't read anything from Sandra before Lethal is an excellent starting point and I highly recommend it.

Probably my favorite Brown novel. She keeps you guessing throughout the entire story and simply does not disappoint in the steamy thriller genre at all. Every time I read a new book by her I think it can't be better than the last and she proves me wrong every time.

This was another outstanding thriller from Sandra Brown with an ending that kept it real
