So, this is a book I've read once. Or, now, one-and-a-half times.

It's not my style. And it's kind of awesome.

I am, as I have previously mentioned, a murder mystery person – preferably of the 1930s variety. I am not a modern thriller fan. Smoke Screen, by Sandra Brown, is emphatically a modern thriller. (Apparently, Sandra Brown – who I've never heard of – is winner of the "Thriller Master Award", which I've also never heard of. She totally deserves it.)

It's a book about corruption, covering up corruption with murder, covering up murder with more murder, and covering up more murder with more corruption. It's also about a woman on the run, and said woman having hot sex with the man whose life she ruined.

It's rather brilliant. I'd forgotten how much I enjoyed it.

And now, if you'll excuse me, I'm going to finish rereading it, and then somehow persuade my husband that I really need to spend money on more Sandra Brown books.
