It began so peacefully. The scene is tranquil, domestic, happy. A young widow, Honor Gillette, is frosting cupcakes under the watchful eyes of her four-year-old daughter, Emily. The words finally penetrate "that innate mom-screen that filtered out unimportant chatter" - Emily is saying there's a sick man in their backyard.

There is, indeed. Honor asks Emily to retrieve her phone from the bedroom and goes outside, but as she draws closer the obviously wounded man acts so quickly, so professionally that she doesn't even have time to recoil before he has her neck in a hold and a gun pointed toward her heart.

Life change in a nano second - from baking cupcakes to being held hostage in her own home, forced to save herself and most of all, Emily. The man is Lee Coburn, the prime suspect in the massacre of seven people the previous night. Obviously, he is capable of anything, a soulless creature. He promises Honor he will not harm them if she does exactly as he says. She has no choice - her home is isolated, bordering a Louisiana bayou. Honor has remained there because it is the home she and her late policeman husband, Eddie, had shared.

Coburn begins to systematically dismantle her house, searching for something he claims Eddie has hidden. Despite Honor's denials of knowing what he is talking about he literally reduces the home to a shambles, while hinting that Eddie's death was not an accident, that he was killed for what he knew. Further, he claims that what he is looking for is of such great value that the lives of Honor and Emily are in danger.

I'm not a particularly good reviewer of books (which is a good start) but I loved this book. I found it hard to put down.

Unlike a few books that I've read recently, I could clearly remember every character and every twist and turn. It's a real mystery, who can be trusted? Will they live?

Very well written and believable characters that you ended up caring about. Highly recommended!

I'm pretty sure that in the course of my reading history I have read Sandra Brown before. She isn't an author that pops to the front of my mind, when thinking about my favourite crime books. When I received a review copy and read the synopsis I thought it sounded surprisingly engrossing so I bumped it up the `to read' list and made a start. When Honor Gillette's daughter runs into the house and tells her Mum that there is `sick man' on the front lawn, Honor does no more than go out to help the guy. What she doesn't realise is that the man on her front lawn is actually Lee Coburn who is wanted by the police for multiple murders.

Within the first two chapters I was hooked. Lee Coburn although armed and dangerous is also a desperate man. He insists that Honor's late husband Eddie had something extremely valuable and he wants it. If she goes along with Coburn both Honor and her daughter would remain unharmed. The fact that this ordinary Mother and daughter are taken at gunpoint makes for extremely exciting reading very early on. I was drawn into the story as Honor fights to keep her daughter safe. She is completely unaware of what Coburn wants but is determined to make sure he gets it.

Quite a few other characters are introduced early on and even before the halfway mark I began questioning every character almost convincing myself that they were `in on it'! Before too long I realised that I was nearly finished and realised that although it was late I HAD to finish reading. Was I right? This is certainly a `whodunit' kind of book and I loved the fact that there was so much going on. There were quite a few plot twists and although I saw one or two coming I certainly couldn't have predicted others.

Not sure where the title 'Lethal' came from.From the outset the author indirectly asks the reader to try & guess who The Bookeeper is. The whole story was based on this and in my opinion was not handled as well as some of the previous reviews have indicated.

There were too many characters, too many implausible events, too many attempts to throw in red herrings, and too many failed attempts to throw in as many unsuccesful plot twists as you can possibly fit into one book.

As you have probabaly already guessed this was not one of my favourite books. It all got a bit too much at the end and it lost what bit of credability it had.
By the time the author revealed the identity of the bookeeper I had lost all interest. I was just glad it was all over.
Of course all loose ends were tied up neatly, just as I thought they would be.
Not my thing at all.

My first ever review on Amazon. I am writing this because I would recommend this book to anyone who liked tv programs like 24 or Homeland in terms of fast paced thrillers full of twists throughout. You do not know how it will play out till you get to the end. Do not get me wrong - when you take a step back it's easy to question the "realism" and whether certain characters would risk their own lives as much as the storyline suggests. However, it is a "story" at the end of the day and most of what I watch on TV would never happen in real life anyway. Overall a fantastic read, and the writing sytle is so creative you can vividly imagine each scene and understand the emotions of the lead characters in your mind as you read through it.
My first time reading a Sandra Brown novel. I plan to read all of her novels now!
