Overview

Julie Garwood created an electrifying tour de force in her suspense-charged bestseller Heartbreaker, a "crackling good thriller" (New York Post) that pitted a relentless FBI agent against a madman in a frenzied race for one beautiful woman. Now, in this thrilling new novel, Garwood goes further down the dark road where passion and obsession meet.

Like his FBI-agent brother Nick, Theo Buchanan is devoted to his crime-?ghting career. Only Theo works the other side of the desk as an esteemed Justice Department attorney. At a gala ceremony in New Orleans, he is suddenly struck ill and is rushed to a hospital where a brilliant and beautiful surgeon, Dr. Michelle Renard, saves his life. It is not the only life-and-death crisis that will ensnare Theo -- for he is about to uncover a ring of criminals bent on preserving their secrecy at any cost.

They call themselves the Sowing Club: four white-collar professionals whose sophisticated crimes have amassed millions of dollars in a Cayman Islands bank account. The group is bound by a pact to leave the cash untouched until they accumulate a cool $40 million. But their leader, John, has begun to lose his focus in their "all-for-one" commitment, distracted by and nearly bankrupt from his wife's grave illness. Knowing what must be done, John turns to his three friends. For the sake of the pact, their brand of crime must turn to the mercy killing of John's wife. But the line between mercy and murder quickly vanishes....

Now, in the small bayou town of Bowen, Louisiana, Theo Buchanan comes to the aid of Michelle Renard when her medical clinic is vandalized. What he discovers is chilling and deadly. As the relentless and cold-blooded Sowing Club sets out to silence Michelle, the one person who may have the information that will destroy them, Theo confronts the lies, greed, and evil that bind the lethal foursome -- and risks more than he ever has before. Michelle saved his life...now can he save hers?

With all of the storytelling power and insight into the human heart that have made her one of the bestselling authors of our time, Julie Garwood introduces readers to an unforgettable cast of intriguing characters in this new masterpiece of contemporary suspense.

Thoroughly enjoyed my drive time listening to this book. I highly recommend it for the story but mostly for the narrator...Terrance Mann. He made the book so pleasurable with all of his different voices. I have books to my list because he is the storyteller.

While I don't usually care for abridged novels the narrator was TERRIFIC, keeping all the accents and characters easy to follow. I enjoyed the plot and have enjoyed other novels in this series

Have Mercy. Theo sounds delicious! I loved the narrator. Usually I'm a little put off by men performing female roles but he did a great job...didn't miss a beat. I enjoy his Boston accent (a lot more than Alec's in the audio of Murder List). It has suspense, it's steamy, and it has it's funny moments too. Of all of the books in the Buchanan series, this is the one I would hope to be unabridged. A great story. A definite must listen.

Julie Garwood is an excellent author and I love the readers she picks. To me, that is a big part of listening to a good book. This book is really good and it keeps you on the edge of your seat (literally)!! (smile) It's neat to see the love bloom between the doctor and Theo. Great listen. )

Thought this one was great. Not too predictable and the romance was just enough to keep a good balance to the mystery. Reminded me of times I've spent in Louisianna. Narrator did a nice job and was easy to listen to. One to rent!!
