"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.
