Jo Donovan always manages to come out on top. From the backwoods of Appalachia, she forged a hard path to life among the literati in New York City. At thirty-five, she' s the widow of the renowned author Hugo Donovan and the owner of one of the best literary agencies in town. Jo is living the life she dreamed of but it' s all about to fall apart. When a would-be client turns stalker, Jo is more angry than shaken until her clients come under attack. Meanwhile, a biography of Hugo Donovan is in the works and the author' s digging threatens to destroy the foundations of Jo' s carefully constructed life. As the web of suspicion grows wider and her stalker ups the ante, she' s persuaded by her client and friend-- FBI profiler-turned-bestselling-thriller writer-- to go to the police. There Jo finds herself face-to-face with an old flame: the handsome Tommy Cullen, now NYPD detective. A Dangerous Fiction marks the welcome return of Barbara Rogan and the start of a terrific new series.
