When Detective Sergeant Duncan Hatcher is summoned to the home of Judge Cato Laird in the middle of the night to investigate a fatal shooting, he knows that discretion and kid-glove treatment are the key to staying in the judge's good graces and keeping his job. At first glance, the case appears open-and-shut: Elise, the judge's trophy wife, interrupted a burglary in progress and killed the intruder in self-defense. But Duncan is immediately suspicious of Elise's innocent act. And further investigation quickly puts Duncan's career in jeopardy--because he can't deny his increasing attraction to Elisa Laird, even if she is a married woman, a proven liar, and a murder suspect.… (mere)

Suspense in which a decent cops worst enemy may be his own conscience and trusting the wrong person could mean the difference between life and death.

Erin St. Claire writing as Brown, Sandra

3/21/18 Done. Would never recommend this book and it was not time well spent IMO. Romance?!? This is not romance, more like lust which can be fine but I think it was awkward adding sex scenes to the detective mystery. Instalove and the h is like do whatever you want with me in bed because I love you so, so much and H is all in turmoil because he loves and wants her so bad but he's keeping his gun nearby because he doesn't really trust her.

Not a fan of the narrator. His girl voices .... not good.

I can't imagine ever reading another book by this author. A 13 hour CD and the truth of the story is revealed in the last hour, as expected but the previous 12 hours weren't that memorable, suspenseful or exciting. I hate mysteries. h had all the answers but couldn't tell the H because it would only make it a 2 hour story. The monologuing by the bad guy was of course caught on tape so he'll be easily prosecuted. I guess my f-i-l liked it for the "twists" which I was "whatever" about.
-----------

2/23/18 My father-in-law asked me if I ever read it because he just finished it and really liked it. He offered to lend me his Kindle so I could read it. So for him, I will read it so we can talk books. Found it on CD, great!
-----------

Ut-oh it opens on a court case with cops and lawyers and a judge. *sigh* Where are the fairies and magic? I actually hate mysteries which this is crowd-sourced as. I love my father-in-law though. (Last book I read for my mother, this one for my father-in-law, next for me? Actually I have plenty going for me)

Elise's bro was killed by drug lord Savage. Judge lenient on Savage because they are working together. Elise works for Savage & marries Judge but can't get dirt. Judge and Savage attempt to murder Elise because they knew what she was doing but let her for fun. Elise disappears after 2nd attempt but witnesses Savage kill the person who came to murder her. Reveals her self to detective Duncan. Sex, sex, sex. Tells him everything gets Savage to confess which is taped. Judge commits suicide. They get married. ( )

Reading a Sandra Brown novel is always an entertaining treat and "Ricochet" is no exception. The homicide detective partnership pairs Detective Sergeant Duncan Hatcher and Detective DeeDee Bowen with the Savannah-Chatham Metropolitan Police Department. There is mystery, suspense, romance, betrayal, secrets, police investigations, and court room drama for a roller coaster reading experience filled with unexpected twists and turns. At the end of each chapter, I found myself saying, "just one more chapter."

Note to self: in the future, let's stay clear from the insta-love romances.

This is another solid Sandra Brown book, but sorry, I couldn't get past that insta-lust turned insta-love without any character interaction to warrant it, unless we mention the mistrust, lies, general deception and rudeness they shower each other with for 75% of the story.

Hence, the 3 * rating instead of the 4*.

Enjoyable book. Enough twists, turns and suspense to keep me wanting to read. ( )
