Book Description

A Romantic Suspense Novel:

Everything's more intense in the heat of a Texas night!

Melinda Amery awoke to the double-barreled deep blue eyes of Lt. Grady Sloan. He wanted answers about a murder. Only she had none. She had no recall, except she knew nothing good would come from remembering...

Grady was the kind of cop who couldn't let go until he got what he wanted. With his job on the line, he needed to break the case. But the only witness had amnesia.

Would her hidden memories reveal more than either of them wanted to know...?

About the Author:
Flying an eight-hour solo cross-country in a Piper Arrow with only the airplane's crackling radio and a large bag of M&Ms for company, Sylvie Kurtz realized a pilot's life wasn't for her. The stories zooming in and out of her mind proved more entertaining than the flight. Not a quitter, she finished her pilot's course, earning a commercial license and an intrument rating. Since then, she's traded in her pilot's license for a keyboard, where she lets her imagination soar to create fictional adventures that explore the complexity of the human mind and the thrill of suspense. She has written 20 books.


Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

Grady Sloan, Fargate's interim police chief, finds that his only witness to a brutal murder is a beautiful amnesiac found at the scene of the crime clutching a drawing. The woman claims that she is innocent, but can she remember anything that will help Grady catch the real killer? The author mixes romance and suspense with perfect aplomb in a well-crafted tale that uses a traumatic event in the heroine's past as the key to unlock the secrets she holds about about the current murder. Kurtz (Silver Shadows, Leisure, 1997) lives in the Northeast.AJC

5.0 out of 5 stars Love and Betrayal March 16, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
It's a simple case of whodunit, but Sylvie Kurtz gave us so many twists and turns that I could not read fast enough to know what is going to happen next!

"One Texas Night" follows Grady Sloan, a small town cop running for Chief of Police and Melinda Amery, socialite, small business owner and the daughter of one of the most prominent lawyers in the Dallas/Fort Worth Metropolex. On the outside, both look like they are very successful, but inside, both are harboring pain from their childhood, making them kindred spirits even without knowing it.

They met because of a murder in their small town of 5,000 people. As investigating officer, Grady found Melinda not far from the crime scene (she was a neighbor of Angela, the victim). First, Melinda was a suspect, but after being medically proven that her amnesia of that fateful night was real, she was treated as a witness, though Grady was slow in ruling her out as a suspect.

As the investigation progressed, tentative stirrings of love grew between Grady and Melinda, but both of them do not want to cross the line for more reasons than just propriety and that Grady was a police officer and Melinda was a witness.

Leaving no stone unturned and still coming up with a blank, Grady knew that the clue to solving Angela's murder was buried in Melinda's repressed memory. But, the more that Grady and Melinda delve into it, a different sort of nightmare comes up, way back to Melinda's childhood.

While solving Angela's murder remained the focus, understanding Melinda's nightmares is the key to everything!

***MY TAKE ON THE STORY***
Beautifully written and very intense, I actually held my breath several times while reading the book.

3.0 out of 5 stars Great Writing, Not so great Story September 20, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Sylvie Kurtz is a fine writer who joins the Intrigue line with "One Texas Night." Telling the story of a woman who might have witnessed her neighbor's murder, Kurtz proves that she has a great voice that deserves to be discovered. If the story ultimately disappoints, it's not because of her writing style. She has a definite way with descriptions, painting pictures with words, and some of her sentences deserve to be reread and savored on their own. The problem is, the story never goes anywhere. It boils down to little more than 200 pages of "Grady wants Melinda to remember, Melinda doesn't want to remember, sparks fly, he goes away....He returns, he wants her to remember, she doesn't want to remember, sparks fly, he goes away...Grady returns, he wants Melinda to remember..." See a pattern? Some actual plot movement begins in the last fifty pages, though it hardly matters, since those who read enough mysteries have probably figured out the identity of the villain long before. In a better book, the revelation of her neighbor's killer would have been the false ending before the more surprising, satisfying one. Alas, it doesn't happen, and it's hard to find any satisfaction with how the finale plays out. I have no doubt I'll pick up her next book, if only to enjoy some fine writing. Hopefully something will happen in that one.

1.0 out of 5 stars Do not try to read any books by this publisher August 23, 2012
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
I started reading this book - and suddenly it ended and inserted an excert from "Broken Wings" and "Hidden Legacy"....what's going on? I will not buy any more of Kurt's books. It was interesting - at least what I read but to end so abruptly and not be able to retrieve the rest was frustrating and and extreme disappointment. That's too bad! SH

While this book was a bit entertaining there wasn't anything really attention grabbing or outstanding about it. Lots of sex and thats about all.
