In Lee Child's Safe Enough, a blue-collar city boy takes up with a wealthy suburban wife, with dire consequences. In Harlan Coben's Entrapped, a woman's husband disappears and is replaced by a handsome impostor. In Laura Lippman's One True Love, a high-end prostitute seeks a radical solution to a PR problem. In P.J. Parrish's One Shot, a man returns to his childhood home to learn the truth about a long-ago tragedy."--Publisher website (August 2006)
