Lethal [Brown]

Book: Lethal
Author: Sandra Brown

Review: When her 4 year old daughter finds a sick man in their yard, Honor Gillette goes out to help. She's shocked to find Lee Coburn, a man accused of killing 7 people. Lee claims he is innocent and needs to find something that Honor's late husband left her that is extremely valuable. Honor insists her husband left her nothing, but she must make a quick decision when Lee claims her life is in danger and that she (and her daughter) must flee with him to remain safe. 

This was a quick paced, page turning thriller and I loved every chapter. I thought Honor's reaction to Lee's initial threats to her daughter were spot on. I liked both Honor and Lee and think they made a great team. Even though the master criminal was easy to decipher (I'll avoid spoilers but it became apparent the individual was the 'big bad' when such a seemingly meaningless character had so much page time), I still couldn't wait to get to the big reveal at the end. 

If you enjoy thrillers, definitely try this one!

Grade: 4/5
