New York book editor Maris Matherly-Reed knows a bestseller when she sees one—even if it is a tantalizing partial manuscript submitted by a writer identified only as P.M.E., with the return address of an obscure island off the Georgia coast. Maris is intrigued enough to search for him.
Her trip to Georgia to meet the mysterious author takes her to an eerie, ruined cotton plantation, where Maris finds Parker Evans, a man confined to a wheelchair who carefully hides his past. Coaxing his novel from him chapter by chapter, Maris gets caught up in his tale of two friends who rent a boat with a young woman for a night of sex and drinking. Only one person will return from that trip.
Disturbed about her sexual attraction to Parker and worried about her marriage to author and her co-publisher Noah Reed, Maris returns to New York where the delivery of Parker's newest chapters convince her they are more than fiction. She wonders how well she knows her husband and begins a harrowing search for a truth that ties back to a terrifying crime and a will use her, or anyone, to get his revenge.
Envy explores the way love and hatred shape lives in a breathtaking story of suspense.

"In a husky, dramatic, and sexy voice, the motivations of the characters in this steamy novel of romantic suspense are revealed. The plot involves a book editor, a mysterious manuscript, and a convoluted literary scam. Victor Slezak's voice easily changes from that of the author, craggy Parker Evans, to the smooth and aloof publisher, Noah Reed, who both have an old score to settle. His treatment of the vixen and the heroine is equally well done. The characters come to life and are captured in both attitude and demeanor. At the end of the story, the past and the present converge to deliver a satisfying con-clusion. A definite must for Sandra Brown fans. D.L.M. (c) AudioFile 2002, Portland, Maine"
