Then one listener - who identifies himself as "Valentino" - tells Paris that the girl he loves jilted him because of Paris's on-air advice. He intends to exact revenge by killing the girl and then coming after Paris. Desperate to stop the sinister Valentino, Paris enlists the help of the police - including crime psychologist Dean Malloy, the very man she had hoped never to meet again..."


Review:I have to tell you that I bought this book at a used book sale simply because I loved the play on Simon & Garfunkle - the song it quotes, "The Sounds of Silence", is one of my favorites. I'm happy to say that this book goes far beyond just a whim's a fabulous read!

Paris Gibson is that anonymous voice in the radio - think Delilah - and that's exactly what she wants. Formerly a television reporter, she now craves simply to be left alone - except for the several hours each night that her show is broadcast. Running from a past that is tragic and overwhelming, she does her best to lay low and remain a loner. But when a psychologically-twisted madman horns his way into her life via her show, she's forced to out herself...and to allow a man back into her life whose very presence unburies all that she's worked so hard to run from in the past.

Sandra Brown is a fabulous writer. Her characters are believable, her plot moves at a great pace, and her sense of suspense is unbeaten. Grab a copy today!
