"More suspense than romance but a great read"
He played Jesus in the all time money making film The
Resurrection, but was inside Corcoran State Prison charged
with manslaughter when the movie was in the theaters. He
was pals with the rich and famous and considered a great
actor. Now Brandon Carlyle has returned to his family home
in Ticky Creek, Texas to regain his lost life and to escape
his stalker Anticipating.
Tabloid reporter Alyson James follows the former icon
to Texas looking for a fresh angle on the fall of a
legend. Alyson persuades a dubious Brandon that she will
help him write his autobiography telling his side of the
story. However, Anticipating has also followed Brandon
home, making him wonder whom he can trust including a
female journalist who he is falling in love with but
questions whether she might be his stalker.
DARKLING I LISTEN reads more like a dark cat and mouse
thriller than a romantic suspense novel. The story line is
well written but grim as Anticipating works magic on the
audience who wonders who the clever stalker is. The
romantic subplot takes a back seat because fans will
question along with Brandon whether Alyson is
Anticipating. Katherine Sutcliffe keeps the taut thriller
from revealing the identity until the climax, making for
quite an exciting chiller.
