Every Breath She Takes

Suzanne Forster, Author Jove Books $6.99 (433p) ISBN 978-0-515-12443-9
In her latest (after Husband, Lover, Stranger), Forster weaves a spellbinding tale of murder and intrigue that guarantees a long night of reading suspense. Stalkers are being stalked and given vengeful justice at the hands of the ""Femme Fatale."" The unknown assailant is dispensing retribution and causing total chaos at the Los Angeles Police Department. Veteran detective R. Scott Walker, known for his unconventional sleuthing style, is in charge of the investigation. He becomes part of the intrigue when he discovers that his prime suspect is Carli Bishop, the daughter of a Supreme Court Justice and the sister of a past lover. Throughout the book, the reader is convinced that all the leading characters are guilty--and Forster gives nothing away until the final chapters. The story loses a bit of momentum midstream, but Foster, writing in top form, more than compensates with the spine-tingling finale. Doubleday Book Club and Mystery Guild alternates. (Apr.)
