Summary:

From #1 New York Times best-selling author Sandra Brown comes a heart-pounding story of survival, that takes the age-old question, "Does the end justify the means?" and turns it on its head.

Dr. Emory Charbonneau, a pediatrician and marathon runner, disappears on a mountain road in North Carolina. By the time her husband Jeff, miffed over a recent argument, reports her missing, the trail has grown cold. Literally. Fog and ice encapsulate the mountainous wilderness and paralyze the search for her.

While police suspect Jeff of "instant divorce," Emory, suffering from an unexplained head injury, regains consciousness and finds herself the captive of a man whose violent past is so dark that he won't even tell her his name. She's determined to escape him, and willing to take any risks necessary to survive.

Unexpectedly, however, the two have a dangerous encounter with people who adhere to a code of justice all their own. At the center of the dispute is a desperate young woman whom Emory can't turn her back on, even if it means breaking the law. Wrong becomes right at the hands of the man who strikes fear, but also sparks passion.

As her husband's deception is revealed, and the FBI closes in on her captor, Emory begins to wonder if the man with no name is, in fact, her rescuer from those who wish her dead - and from heartbreak.

Combining the nail-biting suspense and potent storytelling that has made Sandra Brown one of the world's best loved authors, MEAN STREAK is a wildly compelling novel about love, deceit, and the choices we must make in order to survive.

    Seriously LOVED this book. I listened to it 3 times! I love the twists and where you think its going but it doesn't and the intense desires in it! LOVE this book, I highly recommend it! Also LOVED the reader. I wanted to listen to other books of his but was sad to see when I looked him up that he hasn't read stuff like this before, he mostly does Star Wars books.

  • Charis Merrihew

    I love this author, but this book is cliche and very predictable. Pass this one up for another of Sandra Browns!

  • Nikki Shannon

    This is the third book I've listened to by this Author. This was my favorite so far; they've all been good. Plot sucks you in and then you think you have solved it and bam.,,, maybe you have, maybe you haven't. I recommend listening!!!

    This is a great book! Lots of suspense, great characters and a twisting storyline. I thoroughly enjoyed it and hated to have it come to an end. I will be looking out for more of this type of book from Sandra Brown.

    Great book and narrator(awesome)!!!!! one little thing too many big fancy words, I had to think. I'm a lazy listener.....

  • Stephanie McBurney

    Wow! Great story with an exceptional narrator. One twist after another, with characters I could really invest in. Jonathan Davis' bedroom voice made me sad the story came to an end!

  • Patricia Dene

  • Nic Cooper

    I was totally addicted to this book; couldn't stop listening. I'm glad I bought the audiobook instead of the text because I wouldn't have gotten anything done while reading. Loved the narrator and the storyline was exciting.
