Sting is a mystery novel by author Sandra Brown.
Sandra Brown’s bestselling book shocks listeners from the very first minutes of this heart-pounding tale of corruption, betrayal, and relentless deception… where nothing is what it seems and everything is. The truth is brought to light exposing a darker lie.
When Jordie Bennet and Shaw Kinnard make eye contact through a controversial underground water bar, something is bound to flare up. Shaw radiates a sense of danger that keeps men on alert and inspires women to sit up and take notice. No one feels that undercurrent more strongly than savvy businesswoman Jordie, who doesn’t belong in a deep dive on the bay. But she’s here… and Shaw Kinnard is here to kill her.
As Shaw and his partner take aim, Jordie is sure her moment has come. But Shaw has other plans and kidnaps Jordie, hoping to get the $30 million that her brother stole and presumably has hidden. Shaw isn’t the only one looking for luck. Her brother’s ruthless boss and the FBI are also pursuing it. Now on the run from the federation and a notorious criminal, Jordie and Shaw must rely on their wits – and each other’s – to survive.
Miles away from civilization and surrounded by marshlands, the two play together against their common enemy. Jordie’s only chance of survival is to fool Shaw, but Shaw soon realizes that Jordie isn’t entirely trustworthy either. Is she involved in her brother’s scam, or is she an innocent pawn in a deadly revenge case? And how valuable is her life to Shaw, her captor unrepentant and manipulative? Eagerly searching for answers – and searching for each other – this uncertain couple has finally taken a desperate move that could be their last.
The relentless plot and tantalizing sexual tension that have made Sandra Brown one of the world’s most beloved authors, Sting will keep listeners on their toes until the very last minute.
I really disliked the two main characters in Sting, which made enjoying this book impossible.
First, it’s clear from the start that Shaw isn’t really an assassin, even though he’s a total jerk. Shaw kidnapped and terrorized an innocent woman (Jordie) because he wanted information about her brother, an admitted embezzler. Shaw wasn’t trying to save a life but wanted personal revenge, but he felt justified in breaking the law and violating her civil and human rights.
Second, Jordie needs therapy to stop feeling guilty about an accident that happened to her brother when they were both children. Jordie handled the stress and fear of being kidnapped well but went on to recklessly risk her life, which I find very frustrating in an otherwise intelligent adult. Jordie was also too quick to forgive Shaw, especially since he never even apologized.
This is an interesting hearing. It has a few unexpected twists that, to me, are amazing! Enjoy. The novel’s title says a lot about what’s to come… “tickling” but the who, what, when, how caught me completely off guard.
I have a number of Sandra Brown novels in my library, and when there’s nothing interesting in my hand, I re-read one of her novels.
