Honor’s young daughter discovers a sick man lying in the backyard of their rural home. As Honor runs out to help him, she realizes, within moments, that this is simply a ploy for him to get into her home. Terrified, she allows him into her house, not understanding what’s happening or what he could possibly be seeking from her. She accepts what she’s telling him only to keep herself and her daughter safe. However, in a short amount of time, she finds herself feeling lost and not knowing who to trust, realizing things may not be what they seem.
Lethal is a very fast paced thriller which easily keeps your attention. Readers will know pretty quickly that there’s more to the situation than the scene laid out at the beginning and will want to keep reading to find out more. Although you don’t really know where the story is going, it’s very easy to follow because of Brown’s writing skills. She is an excellent story teller and makes the connections between her characters so the reader isn’t lost. My only criticism is some of the language and situations in the book could have been removed without impacting the incredible pace or plot line. If you enjoy mysteries, this will easily hold your attention and is likely a book you’ll read within a couple evenings or over a long weekend. Fans of Sandra Brown will not be disappointed.
