5.0 out of 5 stars Very enjoyable, 15 July 2007
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: High Noon (Paperback)
In style and content, very similar to Robert's Dallas and Roarke stories under the pseudoname of JD Robb, except for the fact that this is not futuristic. Roberts uses the same short abrupt sentences. Also the character of Pheobe is very similar to that of Eve Dallas. Both are tough, competent women with traumatic backgrounds which have led them into their careers. Unlike Dallas, Pheobe has other demands on her apart from her job. Her's are her lively, shopaholic, seven year old daughter, her agrophobic mother and the fact that because of a will she is tied to living in an old house in Savannah. If she leaves, then her mother is automatically thrown out of the only place that she feels safe in. Pheobe is a woman who takes her family commitments as seriously as she does her job as police negotiator.

She has the added problems of a chauvanistic subordinate police officer who dislikes taking orders from a woman and an unknown stalker who is determined to punish her for some wrongdoing known only to him; are they one and the same? Added to that, is that she, a woman who hasn't time for love, falls in love with Duncan Swift, a man who seven years ago won the lottery and is a millionaire.

However, the romance really takes second place to the suspense elements of the novel. A good read nevertheless.
