Number One New York Times bestselling author Sandra Brown returns with another suspenseful thriller
Dodge Hanley is a private investigator who doesn't let rules get it in his way That's why he's the first person Caroline King - who after a thirty-year separation continues to haunt his dreams - asks for help when a deranged stalker attempts to murder their daughter . . . the daughter Dodge has never met. He has a whole bagful of grudging excuses for wishing to ignore Caroline's call, and one compelling reason to drop everything: guilt. His daughter Berry has become the object of desire of a co-worker, a madman and genius with a penchant for puzzles and games who had spent the past year making Berry's life hell, and who now has vowed to kill her. The heart-pounding situation goes from bad to worse when the stalker begins to claim other victims and leaves an ominous trail of clues as he lethally works his way toward Berry. From the acclaimed international bestselling author Sandra Brown, Tough Customer, is a thrilling tale about obsession and murder, the fragile nature of relationships, and, possibly, second chances.

But when the interview goes catastrophically awry - with unknown assailants targeting his father and Kerra - Trapper starts a hunt to track down the gunmen . . . and finally discover who was responsible for the Dallas bombing.Kerra is wary of a man so charming one moment and dangerous the next, and she knows Trapper is withholding evidence from his ATF investigation into the bombing.
