THE COLOR OF DEATH
Genre: Romantic Suspense, General Romantic Suspense
Talented jewelry cutter Kate Chandler fears her brother Lee Mandel is dead, but she can't get the police to listen. When Lee disappears while carrying priceless sapphires known as the Seven Sins, the authorities assume he stole the merchandise and fled the country. Determined to discover the truth, Kate starts to follow the gem show circuit. She hits the jackpot in Arizona, spotting one of the stones on exhibit.
FBI maverick Sam Groves is in Arizona as part of a special task force looking for a ring of notorious gem thieves. When Sam sees Kate palm the sapphire, he thinks he's hit the jackpot. But he quickly learns she was giving back the real gem.
At first Sam is skeptical about Kate's insistence that Lee was a victim of foul play, but the evidence shows she may be right. Too bad the leaders of the task force are too bullheaded to listen. Sam and Kate are going to have to follow up this one on their own—if they live that long.
Passion and greed can be a very deadly combination, as Lowell clearly demonstrates in her scorching new thriller. Hot romance and hot jewels make this book irresistible! (Jun., 400 pp., $24.95)
