As time winds down Paris and Malloy try desperately to find Valentino, while simultaneously trying to reconcile with their past, before he carries out his threat. This is a fast paced novel that truly kept me guessing until the very end.
I would recommend this book to anyone, this is not a book you will be able to read over a few weeks - after page 1 you are hooked.
For Paris Gibson, her popular late-night radio show is both an escape and her one real contact with the outside world.
Since moving to Austin to ease the pain of past, tragic mistakes, she has led a life of virtual solitude, coming alive only when she hosts her show. To her loyal listeners, she is a wise and trusted friend who not only takes their music requests but listens to their problems and occasionally dispenses advice.
Paris's world of isolation is brutally threatened, however, when one listener -- a man who identifies himself only as "Valentino" -- tells her that her on-air advice to the girl he loves has caused her to leave him and that now he intends to exact his revenge. First he plans to kill the girl, whom he has abducted -- which he says he will do in 72 hours -- then he will come after Paris.
Joined by the Austin police department, Paris plunges into a race against time in an effort to find Valentino before he can carry out his threat to kill -- and to kill again. To her dismay, she finds that one of the people she must work with is crime psychologist Dean Malloy, a man with whom she shares a history that had a catastrophic effect on both their lives. His presence arouses old passions, forcing Paris to confront painful memories that she had come to Austin to forget.
As the clock ticks down, and Valentino's threats come closer and closer to becoming a reality, Paris suddenly finds herself forced to deal with a killer who may not be a stranger at all
This novel tells of the race against time to rescue a young woman from an unknown man who calls himself Valentino, and threatens (via phone calls to a late night radio show) to kill her in 72 hours. Paris Gibson, the radio presenter, feels responsible, and helps join in the search, coming across Dean, a lover from her past, in the process.
The story moves along well, but somehow failed to grab my attention as some of Brown's others have done. At times it was gripping; at others, it seemed to slow down. I found the writings a little sloppy at times, and felt the novel could have done with a little further editing (and perhaps cutting). The ending, too, was a little disappointing. I was hoping for more surprises. But Brown knows her stuff, and if you want a fast holiday read, this could be for you.

Loved this novel another one where you can't stop reading to find out who the culprit is and romance as well can't beat her novelsPublished 18 months ago by Suzanne Whyke

A thriller from start to finish. Kept the reader guessing all the way. Bit of overkill on the sexual descriptions but if you can overlook that it was a great read.Published on 19 Feb. 2014 by Mrs Mary Jones
