"An exciting romantic suspense that never slows down"
After several years of marriage, Julie Carlson realizes
that her spouse Sid slips out every evening at midnight
when he thinks she is fast asleep. Julie figures Sid is
cheating and plans to catch him with his lover. She
pretends to sleep and when he leaves follow him only to
lose him. When her car is stolen, transvestite Mac
McQuarry rescues her.
Julie assumes her savior is gay, but is unaware that
Mac is an undercover private investigator trying to prove
Sid is dirty with mob ties. Sid's friends probably killed
his first wife and Mac's brother, and ruined the latter's
police career. Mac uses Julie to get at Sid, but soon
realizes that the mob wants him and Julie dead.
TO TRUST A STRANGER is an exciting romantic suspense
novel that never slows down, as Sid and his pals need Julie
and Mac dead. Though a taut thriller, the weakness of the
plot lies in the intrepid Julie, who remained oblivious for
years as to how cruel her spouse was until she decides to
investigate his alleged cheating. Karen Robards has
written a terse tale, but some of the key characters are
too malicious to care what happens to them.
