Overview

New York book editor Maris Matherly-Reed knows a bestseller when she sees one -- even if it is a tantalizing partial manuscript submitted by a writer identified only as P.M.E., with the return address of an obscure island off the Georgia coast. Maris is intrigued enough to search for him.

Her trip to Georgia to meet the mysterious author takes her to an eerie, ruined cotton plantation, where Maris finds Parker Evans, a man confined to a wheelchair who carefully hides his past. Coaxing his novel from him chapter by chapter, Maris gets caught up in his tale of two friends who rent a boat with a young woman for a night of sex and drinking. Only one person will return from that trip.

Disturbed about her sexual attraction to Parker and worried about her marriage to author and her co-publisher Noah Reed, Maris returns to New York where the delivery of Parker's newest chapters convince her they are more than fiction. She wonders how well she knows her husband and begins a harrowing search for a truth that ties back to a terrifying crime and a will use her, or anyone, to get his revenge.

"Envy" explores the way love and hatred shape lives in a breathtaking story of suspense.

Just finished listening to this Sandra Brown novel----my first in several years. I enjoyed her then and even more now. This story was captivating and enthralling from start to finish. Very well written---even a newbie will appreciate the talent. Narrator took a little getting used to---at first, I felt he was portraying the hero a little harshly but as the story unfolds, you realize why. Will definitely read more Ms Brown novels!

I have read about half of her books and this one is hands down my favorite. The characters are well developed and the narrator really brings them to life. The narrator does a great job with all the voices and brings each personally through loud and clear. I loved this book!

o have tried to listen to this book from other sites, but have been unable to tolerate the echo and muffled recording. This particular recording from audiobooks.com is excellent! I was so excited to find it

Very intriguing. It had me listening closely to the very end. I wanted to listen to parts of it again just to catch additional hints. Enjoyed the suspenseful story line.

Frankly I did not expect to like or get into this book but got very interested in the plot as it thickened with lots of twist and turns - some edge of the seat reading.
