Publisher's Summary

When she hears that her younger brother, Danny, has committed suicide, Sayre Lynch relinquishes her vow never to return to Destiny, the small Louisiana town in which she grew up. She plans to leave immediately after the funeral but soon finds herself drawn into the web cast by Huff Hoyle, her controlling and tyrannical father. Hoyle owns the town's sole industry and runs the lives of everyone who lives there. 

Her father and older brother, Chris, are as devious as ever with their new partner in crime, a disarming lawyer named Beck Merchant. When Sayre is thrown in closer contact with Beck, she senses something more sinister is at play. 

As she sets out to learn just what did happen to Danny, Sayre is inextricably drawn into a struggle with striking laborers, her unscrupulous father, and her growing love/hate relationship with Beck - a man with mysteries of his own. 

A brilliant combination of hard-edged suspense and intense emotion, White Hot is master storyteller Sandra Brown at her very best.

Soft Scrambled Eggs and Kibbles

I have owned this same recording on Cassette, and downloaded from the publisher. I have repeatedly requested Audible to get the full length version since 2011. Well hallelujah, I was surfing reads by Narrator Victor Slezak, and found this full length recording was finally on Audible.
Audible has the 1.25x speed which matches the authors intention and makes this story bloom to life.
I love this speed for any Mystery or Action genres. Give it a try and see why I have requested this full length version and re purchased it once again so I could enjoy it at this listening speed.
This story, Smoke Screen, and Lethal are my top faves of Mr Slezak reads. I do own all of Mr Slezak Sandra Brown narrations including the tear jerkers Rainwater and Smash Cut which both require tissues.
White Hot stands the test of time as a great Sandra Brown novel. The publishers summery is spot and this novel has Ms Browns signature surprise ending.
However, it is the characters including the infamous Frito, hence my title, which makes this a story worth a revisit.
Each of the scenes that have Frito in them are my top faves, and not to be missed.
This story is set in the Bayou country and Mr Slezak narration puts you right there in the yellow mud. At the drive up fish shack you can taste the eye watering hot sauce on the freshly fried shrimp poor boy sandwiches. He is outstanding in this read.
Do not miss Ms Browns, Mean Streak, read by the great Jonathan Davis of the Star Wars novels. After you hear him narrate Mean Streak, you will go looking for his mystery narrations and become a fan!

She did it again!

Love Sandra Brown and everything I have read of hers. Brown's books are so well written! Also, love Victor Slezak's performance of her books. He has a great ability to really distinguishes the different characters nicely.

Love Sandra Brown stories but...

Sometimes I wonder if she's trying to be a mystery writer or a romance novelist. I don't mind some romance, but it seems like it's inserted "just because" and not really part of the story. Her earlier books had more finesse around the romance. I love the stories so I find myself actually skipping through the sex parts that start abruptly. Not sure if I want more of her books if this keeps up.

Exciting as always

I'm a fan of Sandra Brown and this is another exciting example. I love the slow reveal of different clues and information to keep you guessing and the twist always gets me.

The narration was good. I would have liked a little more variation between the characters and more emoting especially at the climax but I still really enjoyed the story.
