In INTIMATE STRANGERS (2), convicted murderer Mark Ramsey, with a new face and a new life, is out of prison and wants to find the man who framed him for the murder of his wife. He believes that Molly Dumont, a real estate agent in his old hometown, is somehow involved, but Mark begins to fall for her. The suspense picks up when Mark and Molly become the targets for a killer. Rebecca York pens an intrigue weak in suspense and lacking in sizzle. Although the plot twists have some engaging elements, the resolution just doesn't deliver the emotional satisfaction of York's previous intrigues.
