This is my first Coulter book and I have mixed feelings about it. Although the mystery was well written and the romance was well written, some of the character interactions were just too phony to believe. It was a good book, don't get me wrong. I'm just glad I didn't pay to read it! For free, it's worth the read. I'll give it 4 stars.

This Coulter suspense romance is so convolated you will have to read it to get any idea of what is going on. It is worth the reading.

In an unusual move, author Catherine Coulter has updated mystery-romance-suspense novel that first came out in 1990 and she makes good on her promise that "I'm going to have you turning pages so fast you could compete in the Indy 500."

It took me awhile to get into this book, but then I thought "hey, it's not so bad". As I went on, it became more and more convoluted until it was a mass of intersecting lines that threatened to turn into a knot. Everyone and everything had a secret until the miasma threatened to drown you. Of course, everything is resolved quite nicely and neatly in the last 10 pages, but that previously-mentioned thought of drowning is still there in the back of your mind. Untimately unsatisfying.

A weak, tangled plot dims the shine of two fairly enjoyable sparring partners in this contrived novel of romantic suspense set in the high-stakes arena of black-market arms and art. Rafaella Holland, wealthy, shapely, Pulitzer Prize-winning reporter with a powerful karate kick, goes undercover at a Caribbean resort owned by the gangster who seduced and discarded her besotted mother many years before. Rafaella is his daughter. When her mother is hit by a car owned by the gangster's estranged wife, Rafaella decides to expose him for the snake he is. Charming her way into the resort, she runs up against the manager Marcus Devlin (actually a good guy working for U.S. Customs), whom she instantly distrusts and immediately beds. The pair dodge bullets, bicker and try to unmask each other while a mysterious third party makes repeated attempts on her father's life.
