Linda Howard's romantic suspense Kill and Tell
supplies readers with plenty of thrills and chills. As a nurse, Karen Whitlaw has seen more than the average person, but even she isn't prepared to identify the body of the father she hasn't seen since she was 13. The local detective on the case, Marc Chastain, informs Karen that her father, who was homeless, has been murdered. Still grief stricken over the recent death of her mother, Karen isn't prepared to examine her feelings about her father and his absence from her life. She is willing to accept that he was the victim of street crime until her home is burglarized and she becomes the target for some frightening "accidents." Whoever killed her father is after her, and the only hope she has for discovering why must lie in the notebook that Karen's father mailed to her mother shortly before his death.

A riveting masterpiece of suspense. Linda Howard is a superbly original storyteller -- Review
<br /><br />Karen Whitlaw's mother had been dead for only a few weeks when Karen received a package from a man she hardly knew- her father. Raw from the pain of her recent loss as well as the years of her father's abandonment, Karen puts the package and its papers away without reading them. Months later, Karen is called to New Orleans to identify the body of her father. He was murdered... and soon it becomes apparent that someone is after Karen as well. Detective Marc Chastain's first impression of Karen is negative. But he quickly discovers her apparent lack of feeling is due to the iron control she has over her emotions. Marc quickly revises his opinion of Karen- it's not that she doesn't care, it's that she cares too much. Marc's investigation of Karen's father's death brings the two together and Marc is determined to get to know the lady better. But first he has to keep her alive, and discover who wants her dead, and why. Linda Howard takes readers on an emotion-packed, suspenseful ride through New Orleans. The city comes alive under this talented author's attention to detail, creating a sensual, dangerous atmosphere.
