In the Heat of the Tropics is a fast-paced romantic suspense novel. Refreshing to read a story written from the point of view of the three main characters—a beautiful reporter, a handsome detective, and yes, an intelligent killer. The author did a great job depicting the difficult life of the police force, the news world, and the psychological state of the killer. His tragic childhood calls for sympathy at the same time that his deranged adult behavior calls for justice.
I was at the edge of my seat hoping that he would be caught before he found his next victim. -- Author Marcia Maidana.
