When her four year old daughter informs her a sick man is in their yard, Honor Gillette rushes out to help him. But that "sick" man turns out to be Lee Coburn, the man accused of murdering seven people the night before. Dangerous, desperate, and armed, he promises Honor that she and her daughter won't be hurt as long as she does everything he asks. She has no choice but to accept him at his word.
But Honor soon discovers that even those close to her can't be trusted. Coburn claims that her beloved late husband possessed something extremely valuable that places Honor and her daughter in grave danger. Coburn is there to retrieve it -- at any cost. From FBI offices in Washington, D.C., to a rundown shrimp boat in coastal Louisiana, Coburn and Honor run for their lives from the very people sworn to protect them, and unravel a web of corruption and depravity that threatens not only them, but the fabric of our society.

I listened to this one and thought the narrator did a great job. I wouldn’t say LETHAL is a romance book but it does have a sprinkling of “romance” towards the end of the book. If you decide to read this one keep in mind this is more about suspense than it is about romance.
Leathal takes place over 2 days and has 4 couples that play a bigger part in the overall story. The main couple is Coburn andHonor. Honor possibly holds the key to Coburn figuring out who the bad guys are.
The other 3 couples are secondary couples but they have good amount of time in the story.
Couple #1 – Honor’s best friend and her rich boyfriend
Couple #2 – An agent and his wife. They have a severally handicapped child.
Couple #3 – Bad guy and the prostitute who he saves
Each of these couples adds to the overall story with their unique part of the story.
LETHAL is my second book by Ms. Brown. It was a suspenseful adventure with low romance but a fun plot twist towards the end of the story.
