Diana Ladd Walker is a successful author whose fame is based on a major tragedy. Twenty years ago she was brutally attacked in her own home by Andrew Carlisle. She escaped, blinding him in the process. While he was imprisoned, she collaborated with him on a book that brought her fame and fortune. It also helped her marriage disintegrate and will cause her a terror even worse than the attack.

When Andrew dies in jail, Diana hopes that she can move on with her life. What she doesnt know is that in spite of the collaboration, Andrews hatred towards her grew and he found a disciple to carry on his evil work.

This disciple plans to destroy Diana and her husband through their adopted Native American daughter, Lani. Lani is destined to play a great role for her people, if she can survive.

Master of mystery J.A. Jance comes up with a novel of pulse-pounding suspense in KISS OF THE BEES. The tale is a harrowing one, bound to keep readers on the edge of their seats. Youll be holding your breath until the last, satisfying page. (Jan., 465 pp., $7.50—Hardcover published January 2000)
