Sandra Brown is wildly popular for her romantic suspense novels and I recently decided to give her a try. I thoroughly enjoyed Richocet with its many plot twists and adreniline rushes. Duncan Hatcher is a handsome, rugged, police detective who is on a mission to put away killer Robert Savich. The book opens with Judge Cata Laird declaring a mistrial in the Robert Savich case. Duncan Hatcher is incensed and wants to nail Robert Savich. Fast forward, and there has been a burglary and subsequent murder at the Laird household and Duncan Hatcher is the investigating detective. It turns out that Elise Laird shot the intruder. It also turns out that Elise Laird is beautiful and Duncan is captivated by her. Duncan and his partner investigate the shooting at the Lairds and uncover inconsistencies. Elise even makes a claim that her husband hired the intruder to kill her. Duncan is torn between his attraction to Elise and his duty as an investigator. This book comes to an exciting conclusion with some definite romance thrown in. I found it entertaining and exciting. I would read Sandra Brown again!
