A Kiss Gone Bad

By Jeff Abbott (Audiobook, 2014)
A death rocks the Gulf Coast town of Port Leo, Texas. Beach-bum-turned-judge Whit Mosley is summoned to a yacht where the black-sheep son of a senator lies dead. Was it suicide, fueled by a family tragedy? Or did an obsessed killer use the dead man as a pawn in a twisted game? When Whit defies political pressure and conducts an inquest, he and Detective Claudia Salazar expose a nest of drug lords, con artists, and power-hungry sharks - all out for blood. With their careers -- and their lives -- at stake, Whit and Claudia must unearth a lethal trail of passion and deceit that lies buried not in the warm sands of Port Leo but in the icy recesses of the human heart.

  • "This intricately woven, fast-moving mystery will keep readers guessing until the novel's final confrontation." (Publishers Weekly).

  • "A Kiss Gone Bad rocks big time. It's an adrenaline-fueled, twist-filled thrill ride of pure, white-knuckled suspense. I read it in one sitting. I couldn't put it down. I skipped meals. Jeff Abbott is a master, and A Kiss Gone Bad is a marvelous page-turner." (Harlan Coben).

  • "The Texas Gulf Coast has needed someone like John D. MacDonald - someone who knows how to tap the steamy ambience of a place and fire its potential for crime fiction. In Jeff Abbott, the Gulf Coast has found its man. No one understands the darkness at the heart of rural America more than Jeff Abbott, and A Kiss Gone Bad marks a major new direction in his career. This novel hits with all the power of a Texas thunderstorm." (Rick Riordan, New York Times bestselling author of the Percy Jackson series).

  • "Abbott's latest effort is so exciting, shrewd, and beautifully crafted that it's hard to see how it can fail to move him up several noise levels, into Crais, Lehane, Pelecanos and even Connelly territory....a book worth including on any year's best list." (Chicago Tribune).
