For nearly a decade Barbara Parker's phenomenally successful thrillers have delighted readers and reviewers alike. The Chicago Tribune applauds her "taut storytelling...tight plotting and lively characterization." The Miami Herald hails her for her "well-paced, compelling stories and believable characters with emotional depth and texture that should turn casual readers into fanatics." And the San Antonio Express-News calls her novels simply "enthralling." Now this supremely gifted author returns with a blockbuster story of smoldering suspense that pits Gail and Anthony against their most chilling adversary yet.

For attorneys Gail Connor and Anthony Quintana, spending a couple of days in a private villa on a secluded island in the Florida Keys seems almost too good to be true. The innocent cliché hits home with a vengeance when a dangerously unbalanced former client of Anthony's is suspected of a local murder, and then attempts suicide. As an idyllic vacation turns into an escalating nightmare of terror and death, Gail and Anthony find themselves isolated among the strange and secretive islanders as a late tropical storm threatens to unleash its fury on them all. Somehow, they must hang on to their sanity and use every weapon at their disposal to outwit a wily criminal bent on plunging them into a world of deepening madness.

Filled with steamy atmosphere, stunning reversals, and hairpin twists and turns, and certain to be another sensational bestseller, Suspicion of Madness is Barbara Parker-one of America's best thriller authors writing today-at the top of her game.
