Most Helpful Customer Reviews
Ms. Kane weaves a tale of diabolical revenge threatening to destroy what Cody Maxwell holds most dear, his ex-wife Dana. Forced together for Dana's protection from the evil Fontenot, Dana and Cody realize the attraction between them is still strong. Dana and Cody sizzle! The New Orleans setting adds to the heat. Let's hope Ms. Kane writes a sequel for hunky detective Dev.
New Orleans police detective Cody Maxwell knows that paroled convict Gerard Fontenot is coming to kill him for being the catalyst that sent him to prison for four years. Cody Knows Gerard is brilliant, clever, sneaky, and a psychopath. His enemy has slowly increased the pressure until the latest trap leads to Cody taking a bullet in his shoulder at his own apartment. Instead of going to a hospital, Cody rushes to the Metairie home of his beloved ex-wife Dana Maxwell to insure her safety. Cody knows that Gerard plans to complete his vengeance by harming and ultimately killing Dana. As Gerard¿s plan slowly simmers into focus, the love Cody and Dana feel for each other surfaces, but his dangerous lifestyle sent her running once and now it is even more dangerous. Mallory Kane has written an exciting romantic suspense novel with the emphasis on the action. The romantic subplot-adds great dimension to the lead couple. The story line is fast-paced and never slows down due to the ingenious Gerard, a powerful villain in a Lex Luther (first series) sort of way. Though his release from prison for good behavior, etc. seems stretched (after all he shot a cop) fans wanting plenty of entertainment filled with conflict (both life threatening and sexual) will relish Ms. Kane¿s powerful tale. Hopefully there will be more tales involving the heroic hunk¿s law enforcement peers in the future. Harriet Klausner
