Written in her "trademark darkly sensual style" (Booklist), New York Times bestselling author Linda Howard brings us an electrifying page-turner of passion and suspense with a captivating premise What would make the perfect man? That's the delicious topic that heats up the proceedings at a certain table of professional women at their favorite restaurant. What qualities would he have? Would he be tall, dark, and handsome? Caring and warmhearted-or would just muscular do? Jaine Bright and her three girlfriends start off with the basics: he'd be faithful and reliable, the responsible type, and have a great sense of humor. But as the conversation picks up momentum, so do the quartet's requirements for Mr. Perfect as and they write down a tongue-in-cheek checklist that's both funny and racy. The next thing they know, the List, as it has come to be called, becomes an overnight sensation, spreading through their company like wildfire and grabbing the interest of local newspapers and television coverage. No one expected this avalanche of attention for something that began as a joke among friends. But the joke turns deadly serious when one of the four women is murdered... The prime suspect in the case is the victim's boyfriend, who was one of a number of men who found the List sexist and offensive. An impenetrable alibi gets him off the hook, but a deadly stalker targets the three remaining friends. Now, with the help of Jaine's neighbor, an unpredictable police detective, the puzzle must be solved as the dream of Mr. Perfect becomes a chilling nightmare.

Professional reviews

"The weekly dinner meeting of four friends starts with mundane conversation but soon turns into a list of what attributes would make up the perfect man. Moving from pragmatic to racy, the tenor of the list changes and is picked up by the press. But soon what started as fun turns to fear when one of the women is murdered. A sassy and brash story is given a like reading by Laura Hicks. Her brusque interpretation of the characters leaves one craving sympathy for any of these people, who have such a frightening future awaiting. The one who receives her softest and kindest sounds is, unfortunately, the villain of the piece. The brash, sassy, sexy story itself is what keeps the listener attached to the headset. J.P.
