Delilah Butler survived a violent past and has become a good cop. Now she finds herself working with Jesse Montalvo, the police negotiator who was her lifeline when her mother was murdered and she was taken hostage. For years, Delilah has had fantasies about the mysterious Jesse, whom she knew only as a voice on the phone, and who helped her more than he realizes. Their search for a serial killer triggers Jesse's guilt over not being able to save the young Delilah from harm. Tight suspense and great chemistry between the lead characters make Jean Brashear's Most Wanted (4.5) a page-turner.
