Veil of Night by Linda Howard
Linda Howard is a prime romantic suspense writer, and her newest volume is no exception. Her stories are always well-plotted mysteries twined with a hot romance. Usually - as in two if my favorites, "Cover of Night" and "Cry No More" - the suspense portion leaves a damsal in distress who is then rescued by an unlikely hero. For some reason that I'll examine later in therapy, that lay-out appeals to me. However, that tension was missing from this story. While this is a solid storyline and a fun read, it just didn't have the re-read appeal of earlier books. I would still give it four out of five stars and recommend it to romantic suspense fans.
