―Kirkus on DEADLINE
"Sandra Brown meticulously develops a stellar cast of characters, weaving them into a tense, gritty thriller that offers numerous plot twists leading to stunning revelations and a nail-biting conclusion....I'm now wondering why I waited so long to enjoy this talented author's work.

When Emory travels alone to a snowclad mountain, it isn't solely the desire to train for a wintry marathon that drives her. She needs some time apart from her husband, Jeff, to mull over the hostilities that have simmered for months in their marriage. But the mountain is colder and more hostile than she realizes. Is it only a fall on the icy trail that causes her to lose consciousness, or did she fall victim to a human assailant? But who would want to hurt the good doctor?
Jeff might want revenge for Emory's refusal to support his own career, but he's got an iron-clad alibi -- he was in the arms of his secret lover during Emory's ordeal on the mountain. Surely a much more likely assailant is the secretive mountain man who claims to have rescued Emory, but who refuses to provide any details about his own whereabouts at the time of her attack, a man who exercises a strange and increasingly erotic fascination over her.
Without providing any spoilers, I've got to say that I don't buy the strong but silent mountain man's back story for a second. But that doesn't keep me from cheering either for him and Emory or, weirdly, for the FBI agent determined to bring the mysterious stranger to justice. Perhaps it was Brown's teasing insistence on the mystery man that made the true identity of Emory's assailant take even this skeptic so completely by surprise. And just maybe, Brown will make a true believer out of me in the end.
When she awakens, she assumes the man in the room is her abductor. He’s been taking care of her and assures her that he won’t harm her. But, he won’t even tell her his name. Severe fog had moved in overnight preventing her from leaving the cabin. So, she continues to heal from what she suspects is a concussion while the weather gets increasingly worse. She can’t even let Jeff know she’s alright. No phone; no cell phone service; no way to travel in this mess. But they soon have even more problems in the form of Mr. NoName’s neighbors.
Back to Jeff – yes, he is having an affair. In fact, he took full advantage while Emory was away for her weekend. However, Sunday came and went and she still wasn’t home. He hesitated to report it; he just thought she was punishing him after their argument. Once he does report it, the officials begin to suspect him. He’s got what they consider motivation.
This is Sandra Brown’s newest novel. I can’t lie; I loved it – all of it! All of the characters, like them or hate them, were fleshed out very well. Each new chapter was a new adventure. There was not one moment that I didn’t look forward to what was going to happen next. The twists, and there were a few of them, were delightfully played. There was one scene toward the end in which the logistics didn’t seem to fit. To explain it further would be to give away a spoiler. As a side note, there are a lot of bad Amazon reviews. Not all, but many of them stem from the preview that was being offered as a free kindle download. There are also reviews for sale on Amazon that cause even more confusion for buyers. Many people thought they were getting the book. So if you download Mean Streak, please be careful what you’re getting. I rated Mean Streak at 4.5 out of 5.
