About this title
In the latest installment in his acclaimed series, award-winning crime novelist Stephen Greenleaf delivers the sexiest, fastest story to date in the life of San Francisco P.I. Marsh Tanner. Author Chandelier Wells is scared. Someone is sending her notes that read: If you don't stop it you will die. Stop what? Chandelier doesn't know, or she's not telling. It's the kind of case Tanner doesn't usually accept: bodyguard to an alluring, world-famous writer. But this time he can't say no. Chandelier knows people who mean a lot to him and when a car bomb comes too close for comfort, the chase is officially on and the suspects are many. There's the jealous writer who accuses Chandelier of plagiarism, the real estate mogul she rejected, and, of course, her ex-husband. Tanner must negotiate the complex turns of Chandelier's life to find the answer. Along the way, Tanner explores his own relationships, unaware that his life is about to take a dramatic turn.Review:
This is the 16th outing for Stephen Greenleaf's series hero, San Francisco PI John Marshall Tanner (Past Tense, Strawberry Sunday). In Ellipsis, Tanner signs on as bodyguard to a bestselling romance novelist. Chandelier Wells's connections to people Tanner loves persuade him to temper his dislike and protect her from the death threats she's been receiving as she prepares to embark on a book tour. At first Tanner doesn't take the threats very seriously; he's halfway convinced they're just a publicity stunt. But when a car bomb kills a former FBI agent who's been moonlighting as Wells's driver, Tanner gets serious in a hurry.
Suspects aren't in short supply; it seems that Wells has as many enemies as readers. Is the perp a deranged fan, a fellow writer who swears Chandelier plagiarized her work, a real estate mogul she dumped in an act of public humiliation, or an ex-husband who believes he's entitled to a share of her wealth? With Tanner on the case, the chase is on, in a smartly paced story that gives the reader a deeper look into Tanner's emotional complexities and capacities. Greenleaf is a master plotter, and Tanner gets more interesting with every adventure. --Jane Adams
