Hated it. Struggled to read 64%. Utter rubbish.

It's a shame because the writing in itself isn't bad. It's quite gripping from the start -despite a horrendous rape scene- but I just cannot deal with how horribly cliché this all was. From the police officers, and the romance part (why you would mix a murder story with romance is beyond me but hey ho), to the murderer. So not only does it all make you eye roll so hard that you risk going blind but on top of that it's been done a thousand times already.
bluuuugh, Elizabeth Adler, never again.

This book is listed under the genre of romantic suspense. I have never understood how romance and suspense are intermingled, however, Elizabeth Adler has a genre under this very title. The characters are stereotypical but amazingly interesting. The romance that developed mid mystery was somewhat addictive.

OK, take one hunky detective, think faded jeans, leather jacket, scruffy beard, and tousled hair plus an uptight, beautiful TV celebrity with lots of secrets, a psychopath who’s viciously murde

Una novela policiaca que fue de las primeras de ella que leí y que me gustó bastante. no dejaré de decir que la historia de malori Malone es asombrosa, con un poco de tristeza pero con gran fortaleza al mismo tiempo. y cómo con su ayuda Harry Jordan debía descubrir quién era el asesino de las tres chicas universitarias. una brutal sorpresa.

Good suspense story but what was the point of the locked room. None in my opinion. Loved Miffy and Squeeze!
John Mcconahey
Serial rapists are not on my top ten list of fun things; nor are sexual deviants with a penchant for murder and mutilation. Combine the two, and you have my least favorite Adler work from my small realm of exposure to her. But, don’t despair.

Via a few flashbacks, details of our female protagonist’s squalid, friendless childhood are revealed, giving reasonable credibility to her current behaviors as the star of a TV network program in New York City (which appears to be similar to a combination of

I loved this mystery but then again I love all of Elizabeth Adler's books. This story is quite a bit darker than most of Adler's mysteries but that only served to make it all the more intriguing. "The Prof" is the perfect leading man, a crime fighting hero in jeans and a leather jacket.

I couldn't help but get drawn into the hunt for the killer who is nothing short of evil as Harry and his partner race to stop him. I also enjoyed how Adler peeled back the layers of Mallory Malone to reveal the g

This book is definitely not a classic, it is an easy read, the plot is kind of weird and too convenient. It could have been better, i found myself being so annoyed at the way everybody seemed to repeat Mary Mallone's FULL name like a thousand times. Just did not seem something REAL people do in REAL life situations, which is kind of what the novel is all about. The whole plot does not seem realistic, the little details but overall it was good, it was okay, at some point i was hooked to the story ...more

A Wonderful Classic...

I read Now or Never when it was published, still have my copies on the shelf.

Ms. Adler is what I call a classy author.

She wove a story of heartbreak--an unloved child, teenager, and finally a woman--still hiding behind a facade while she struggles within herself to help a lovable detective attempt to solve a string of vicious murders. And he has a super cool beloved dog!

If you haven't read Now or Never, you're in for an excellent treat.

Surprise!

While it took me awhile to really get into this book, I found out that I made judgement too soon. Elizabeth Adler can take you anywhere she chooses! I have to admit that I am ready for another surprise! This is cleverly written to entertain you every time you turn a page!

MAL IS LIKE THE TV SHOW LIKE JOHN WALSH I HAD A HARD TIME LIKING HER EVEN THOUGH SHE DID GOOD DEEDS HER PERSONALITY REALLY SUCKED. I LIKED HARRY AND HIS DOG SQUEEZE THEY WERE A GREAT TEAM. MY PROBLEM WAS THE WHOLW BOOK WAS OVER-THE-TOP DISCRIPTIVE SO MUCH UNNECESSARY DETAIL STUFF I REALLY DID NOT WANT TO KNOW. IF IT WASN’T FOR THAT THIS COULD HAVE BEEN A GOOD NOVELLA. ;O

Great read!

A homicide detective from a wealthy family is attempting to catch a serial killer. This leads to his interaction with a well known TV personality who focuses her show around outing criminals. Good character development, enjoyable dialogue, and moments of suspense with a thread of romance.

At first I liked this story but in the end I felt insulted by the author. When she had the heroine left alone by the hero at his apartment when it was obvious she would be targeted, well, how stupid was that? Plus, I am very tired of reading about people who have had secret babies in their past.
Joanne E. Insull
Great character development.

Hacker's strength is in the way she so clearly developed all of her characters making them very visible in the mind's eye and bringing them to life. A great read. It caught me very quickly and kept me glued to it until it was done.

I read this book so long ago that you may not necessarily want to listen to my rating. I remember being on the edge of my seat while reading it, and not being able to put it down. At the time it was my favorite book, but I think it was only the second or third book I actually read in entirety.

This book caught me up from the first to last page. A great mystery and a great romance intertwined throughout. Author had a great knack for alternating chapters on personal lives and the ongoing mystery killer's life. I will definitely read anoher of Adler's books.

It read more like a James Patterson book than a Elizabeth Adler book! I have read several of her books, and this was definitely different than the others. However, it was a good plot and murder mystery.

This book was a really good read. It was suspenseful and I loved the characters. I was so shocked at the ending, and also really suprised when Mary Mallory revealed her past to Harry. I couldn't put it down, especially towards the end.
Mary Vernon
3.5 stars. Suspense with a romantic flavor. Not life-changing or awe-inspiring but a pretty decent read if you're just looking for a good whodunit story with a little trashy romance on the side.

Don't normally read mystery/suspense novels, but gave this one a try since it is a romance as well. I thoroughly enjoyed it and look forward to reading more of her books.

Excellent book. Draws you in within the first paragraph. Hard to put down. You just want to hurry up and read it to find out all the answers. Keeps you at the edge of you seat. A must read.
