New York Times Bestseller: The hunt is on for a missing woman in steamy Florida in this romantic thriller from an author who “knows what readers want” (Publishers Weekly). Few people in Florida worry when Marnie Newcastle disappears. A successful lawyer with a wild side, Marnie has been known to disappear during her passionate love affairs. But Samantha Miller, a college friend who is as sensible as Marnie is impulsive, knows better. When Marnie vanishes a few days after moving into her dream house, Samantha is the only one who doesn’t think her friend is off on another tryst. There are dark secrets in Marnie’s past, and Samantha thinks one of them may have gotten her killed. Investigating Marnie’s menagerie of ex-lovers, Samantha finds a crooked contractor, a rock star, and a homicide cop—all with something to hide. A killer is stalking the Florida swamps, and Samantha must find him before he finds her—or else she may be the next to die. This ebook features an illustrated biography of Heather Graham including rare photos from the author’s personal collection.
A deranged man is on the loose in Miami, killing women and dumping their bodies into gator-infested swamps. Now the madman has kidnapped beautiful, bitchy, lascivious lawyer Marnie Newscastle, and her friend Samantha Miller must convince authorities that Marnie's absence is no wild weekend fling. To make matters worse, Samantha discovers her new neighbor is Rowan Dillon, a man she once loved but who betrayed her years before. With a setup like this, Graham's (Glory; Drop Dead Gorgeous) latest should pack a wallop, but, surprisingly, it doesn't--even with strippers and a long list of suspects added to the mix. While the burgeoning romance between Samantha and Rowan is handled well, Graham's portrayal of a murderer--that someone so "handsome and virile" simply couldn't be crazy--na ve. The lost-and-found love story works; the suspense simply doesn't.
