#1 New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Sandra Brown delivers her trademark nonstop suspense and supercharged sexual tension in this thriller about tainted heroism, cold fury, and vengeance without mercy. Kerra Bailey is a television journalist on the rise, and she's hot on the trail of a story guaranteed to skyrocket her career to even greater heights: an interview with the legendary Major Trapper. Twenty-five years ago, the Major emerged a hero from the bombing of the Pegasus Hotel in downtown Dallas when he was photographed leading a handful of survivors out of the collapsing building. The iconic picture transformed him into a beloved national icon, in constant demand for speeches and interviews--until he suddenly dropped out of the public eye, shunning all members of the media. However, Kerra is willing to use any means necessary to get to the Major--even if she has to wrangle an introduction from his estranged son, former ATF agent John Trapper.
Still seething over his break with both the ATF and his father, John Trapper wants no association with the hotel bombing or his hero father, and spurns the meddling reporters determined to drag them back into the limelight. Yet Kerra's sheer audacity and tantalizing hints that there's more to the story rouse Trapper's interest despite himself. And when her interview of a lifetime goes catastrophically awry--with unknown assailants targeting not only the Major, but also Kerra--Trapper realizes he needs her under wraps if he's going to track down the gunmen before they strike again . . . as well as discover, finally, who was responsible for the Pegasus bombing.
Kerra is wary of a man so charming one moment and dangerous the next, and she knows Trapper is withholding evidence collected during his ATF investigation into the bombing. But having no one else to trust and enemies lurking closer than they know, Kerra and Trapper join forces and risk their very lives to expose a sinuous network of lies and conspira

5 "Uncovering the Truth" Stars!
Sandra Brown's ability to pen romantic suspense is as strong as ever! Every year I look forward to her annual romantic suspense release, and once again Ms. Brown has captivated my attention with an intriguing mystery and garnered my attention with a well-developed and I think this year extra charged passionate romance!
John Trapper's father is America's favorite hero. Over twenty years ago his father became a cherished heroic icon when he saved the lives of numerous people in a hotel bombing of the Pegasus Hotel that claimed close to 200 lives. John's life, however, was forever negatively affected by that event (which occurred when he was just 11 years old). John feels like he might as well have lost his father that day given his father's lack of involvement in his life from that day forward as a result of the dramatic change that his father's fame and notoriety led to. This distance, as well as the circumstances surrounding John's questionable departure from the ATF, lead to John and his father no longer being on speaking terms.
So when an up and coming TV reporter (Kerra Bailey) asks John for his help in securing an interview from his father for a special anniversary edition, John wants no part of this request--even if he can't help but have salacious thoughts about the very attractive, Ms. Bailey. When Kerra, however, leaves John--who now works as a private detective--with a puzzle that he quickly solves and which may be the key to proving the theory he "quit" the ATF over, John reluctantly agrees to help Kerra in her request.
That interview, however, leads to one whopper of a revelation and ends up stirring up all kinds of previously buried skeletons. Just what is the truth and what really happened all those years ago? Moreover, as danger is unleashed, will Kerra and John be able to work together to uncover the truth before it is too late? And will they be able to keep their professional distance or will they succumb to their heated attraction?
Lovers of romantic suspense stories will not want to miss SEEING RED: it is sure to hit you in the feels department in all the right spots and challenge your ability to sleuth a mystery to boot! With yet another fantastic Sandra Brown story under my belt, now I can't wait to read more of Ms. Brown's talented and intelligently written romantic suspense titles.
