Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

A deranged man is on the loose in Miami, killing women and dumping their bodies into gator-infested swamps. Now the madman has kidnapped beautiful, bitchy, lascivious lawyer Marnie Newscastle, and her friend Samantha Miller must convince authorities that Marnie's absence is no wild weekend fling. To make matters worse, Samantha discovers her new neighbor is Rowan Dillon, a man she once loved but who betrayed her years before. With a setup like this, Graham's (Glory; Drop Dead Gorgeous) latest should pack a wallop, but, surprisingly, it doesn'tAeven with strippers and a long list of suspects added to the mix. While the burgeoning romance between Samantha and Rowan is handled well, Graham's portrayal of a murdererAthat someone so "handsome and virile" simply couldn't be crazyAna?ve. The lost-and-found love story works; the suspense simply doesn't. (July)

Amongst the backdrop of flashy Miami Beach, Coconut Grove, lurking monsters in the Everglades, Graham grips you again into the world of mystery & romance.
I relaxed & had fun with this book. I could feel the danger lurking off Key Biscayne. The twisting complex relationship between Sam, a witty, brave woman & Rowan, her sexy ex-lover was truly enjoyable. I found myself leary but pulling for them.
"Tall, Dark, and Deadly" left me thrilled, chilled, and satisfied.

From the ghastly, engrossing first page through the suspense-filled surprise ending, Graham's new novel reads like the book Mary Higgins Clark has been trying to write for years. Graham manages to make one actually feel the sweaty atmosphere of hot, humid southern Florida, so much so, that as one tears through the the pages of this pulse-pounding and ever-so romantic thriller,this reader found himself mopping his brow on more than one occasion. As for characters, each one has a rich and unique personality, seldom seen in the genre. Ms. Graham's moments of humor are apt, never calculated and always derive honestly from the characters, as well as being welcome tension breakers. If you've never read a Heather Graham novel-GET THIS ONE! For suspense, romantic or otherwise, it just doesn't get any better. Bravo! Ms. Graham. You've done it again!

Summers are slow, lazy, and hot; Heather Graham's latest thriller was just what I needed to give me a little chill...her 'tall, dark, and deadly' villain seemed so real that I found myself checking the doors and windows before I went to bed. The romance between Sam and Rowan developed naturally before reaching a gratifying intensity. I also loved the scene-setting. It was so dreamy and enticing that I think I want to buy a house on the ocean...

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Marnie Newport has disappeared. Since she's a wild thing, most of her 'friends' believe her to be having a sexy weekend away with her latest lover. Only Samantha, her best friend who knows how happy and proud Marnie was about her brand new house, seems to believe that Marnie would never leave her new home so soon, not even for a day. Everyone's sceptical at first, but when days go by and still Marnie hasn't appeared, others are getting worried too. Could this have something to do with a secretary of the law firm Marnie works for, who disappeared a while ago? Or the famous socialite who was the firm's client but also vanished in thin air?

The good stuff:
-The writing: Heather Graham can write. She writes beautifully, describing Miami and its surrounding swamps so vividly, you'll feel as if you're there. And she can use subtle humor to lighten the mood, exactly when she needs to. The writing was actually the best thing about the book.
-The suspense: I admit I never guessed who the bad guy was. Graham kept sending red herrings, and while I didn't get confused by all of them, I did take the bite once or twice, sending me in a completely wrong direction and she achieved this not by providing false clues or keeping things in the dark or other easy tricks. This is a story that'll have you hooked till the last page.
-The romance: it was believable and developed in a good, realistic pace. Considering the hero and heroine had been together in the past and he had dumped her, her feelings of distrust and betrayal were very easy to believe in. And she took her sweet time to trust him again, not falling into his muscled hands right away, ready to forget the past at his beck and call.

It may be the changing times, but my opinion of this book, and Ms. Graham, changed a whole bunch from the first time I read this book in 2006. I loved it then but found it lacking in 2010.

The hero, Rowan, is sexy and honorable. The heroine, Samantha, was hard for me to identify with. She is dedicated to the people she loves, I get that, but she comes across as not being very smart. Some of the thoughts that run through her head are laughable, and silly.

The suspense is okay, but the way Samantha's thought processes work irritated me. As I've said in another review of Ms. Graham's work, there are way too many explanation points. For example; `"Joe!" she said blankly.' Sorry, to me, an explanation point does not equal a blank statement--that's kind of the reason for explanation points!

The dialogue is unnatural, and rough. The average person just doesn't say things like; "...musn't ever find out..."

A lot of suspects abound because EVERYONE is tall, dark, beautiful and built!

There are several typo's and mixed tenses in this particular book. Of course, typo's are expected, but some of these are blatant. Not all of that can be put on Ms. Graham--her editor at Penguin Putnam is more responsible than she is for the oversights.

Still, it's a decent read, even though it's irritating and feels false at times.

I'm a fan of Ms. Graham's and if you like sexy romance/suspense novels, you'll most likely enjoy this tale.

Oh yeah, there is a really decent sex scene. It's lengthy and involved and pretty hot, until silly Samantha ruins it.
