The third book in Greiman's Christine McMullen series has much to offer, including snappy dialogue and
fast pacing. Christina, a likably
flawed character, and the secondary
characters come to life to create
a world that's too good to miss
out on. Plus, the chemistry between Christina and her police detective
paramour sizzles.

There's just no denying that homicide detective Jack Rivera gets psychologist Christina's blood rising. This shouldn't be a bad thing, but in the past Rivera has tried to have her arrested for murder. Now, they are trying to get past their differences -- until Rivera himself is arrested for murder.

He's accused of murdering his ex-girlfriend, who just happens to be his rich senator father's current love. Christina knows she must help in any way she can, but first she must decide if she believes Rivera is innocent. As she looks into everyone's past, secrets are revealed -- secrets that someone would kill to keep hidden. (Dell, Feb., 400 pp., $6.99)
