Linda Howard is a superbly original storyteller.Iris Johansen Blair Mallory has already survived one murder attempt. Now, while planning her wedding and dealing with holiday-season madness, Blair once again dodges a bullet. Or more precisely, a Buick. And though the drivers identity remains a mystery, his or her murderous intentions are all too clear. Or are they? After all, Blairs homicidal ex-husband and his partner in crime/wife are safely behind bars. And even Wyatt Bloodsworth, her police detective groom-to-be, isnt inclined to believe shes being targeted again. All of which makes Blair wonder if her close call was simply a mishap. But the wondering stops when she narrowly cheats death again in another seemingly innocent accident. Two strikes is all it takes to convince Blair that shes back in someones crosshairs. And the only thing more frightening is that Wyatt still doubts her. That means this time, no one will be watching Blairs back when she sets out to get the drop on her would-be killerbefore whoever it is finally drops her.From the Paperback edition.
