"Danger Zones is compulsively readable and utterly engrossing--one of those books which hooks you from page one until you reluctantly surrender it in the small hours of Saturday morning."--The Times (London)The danger zones--where sex, secrets, and sin collide--are the places that New York Times bestselling author Sally Beauman knows best . . . and explores with gripping, brilliant intensity in her new novel. In the picture-perfect English Cotswolds, two teenage girls dressed in punk finery attend a wild midnight party. Music, drugs, and dancing are promised by the enigmatic young man known only as Star. Charismatic and cunning, a conjurer who procures heaven for a price, Star sells seduction for a living. Now he's got a pill--a White Dove--that delivers the ultimate high. And he has a plan. By dawn, one girl will be dead, the other will have vanished--swept by Star into the danger zone.At the heart of that perilous place stands the gifted and reclusive Maria Cazarès, a couturier of originality and passion, a woman who shuns her own fame, a legend shrouded in mystery. Around her swirls rumor and counterrumor, whispers of shocking secrets and taboos broken. Fiercely shielded from celebrity's glare by Jean Lazare, her iron-willed partner--some say lover--Cazarès is surrounded only by a carefully selected few.And the most dangerous among them is Star.Now, as the glitterati assemble in Paris for the new collections, a fatal triangle established three decades before in sultry New Orleans is about to fulfill its tragic destiny. Two journalists, firebrand editor Rowland McGuire and investigative reporter Gini Hunter, pick up the heady scent of an unfolding scandal. And as they clash over how to cover it, their hostility ignites a sudden desperate flame of desire--a desire that, if quenched, will tilt their universe.Against the pounding beat and dazzling colors on the runway as the world waits breathless for the new Cazarès collection, the search for a missing innocent will reach its pulsingly suspenseful climax. At last, blood red truths will be revealed . . . as the author of Destiny sweeps us into the Danger Zones, where no heart is safe.

I have always liked Sally Beauman's books. Character development and story are always very well written. I have read Destiny and Dark Angel which are long stories but I came to know each character right up until the end and was sorry the stories ended. I am still waiting for Lovers and Liars which is the first in this trilogy with the last one being Sextet. These books are now out of print so one must be looking specifically for her books. Enjoy!!

Again, I enjoyed reading one of her novels. She is excellent in all she writes and I hope to read her for years to come.

I actually enjoyed this second in the series better than the first book. Again the protagonists are the intrepid war photographer Pascal Lamartine and his lover Gini who is a correspondent with ambitions, inherited from her father, to prove herself on the battlefield. We meet them some months after they have finally found each other -- but things are not going well. Gini went with Pascal to cover the war in Bosnia but has been traumatized by the violence she saw and retreated back to London, a shell of herself. Pascal, who while brilliant is also amazingly dense and insensitive, has continued on covering the war, apparently totally oblivious of his lover's distress while she is clearly cracking up, poor thing.

Meanwhile the plot revolves around a mysterious fashion designer, a new super drug that has the effects of heroin without diminishing libido and a dangerous sociopath who goes around kidnapping young girls. We are introduced to Rowland, the super handsome features editor of the Daily Whatever, and Lindsay, the fashionable fashion editor. They dislike each other at first sight -- which means they are destined to be together. But that won't happen in this book because fate has placed the vulnerable Gini in the path of the masterful and nurturing Rowland.

The plot has many twists but holds together well and the characters are engaging. Love here is presented as a complex and delicate life form that needs to be nurtured and can easily be ruined. Nobody is perfect and people when placed in intolerable situations or put under immense pressure can and do crack. The biggest weakness of the book is Pascal, who I cannot warm to. Self-absorbed, sanctimonious, preachy -- Gini would be better off with someone else a little less full of himself. But it seems she's stuck with him because he's "the love of her life."

This book is a Number Two. As in Number Two of a trilogy, although I wouldn't say you needed to read the first book before picking this one up, as it's a totally different story, not a continuation. The only thing is, you'll know some of the characters a bit better for having read the previous volume.

Warning: there is a love triangle. I know quite a few people hate them with a passion, so I thought I'd mention it. Surprisingly enough, I actually enjoyed this aspect of the book best, and got annoyed when the stupid drugs & killing spree plot got in the way. Totally the reverse of how I usually feel. I suppose it's because I love how Beauman writes love. She's great at evoking the many emotions one experiences, and even if some of it rings false, the parts that don't feel more honest than most depictions in romantic fiction.

I'm almost inclined to say skip it. The main plot, involving designer of both fashion and drugs, did not have me curious or involved; and the love triangle, while better reading, is still nothing to blow your mind.

This is the first Sally Beauman that I read and would be interested in reading the other books by this author, The plot was interesting and fast paced. I found it not to be predictable but did not like the ending.

Before you read DANGER ZONES read LOVERS AND LIARS it's not necessary, but after LOVERS AND LIARS you care about Gini and Pascal so much this book is a must. Beauman's genius is her ability to make her characters so real. They are filled with the same contradictions and fears as the rest of us. Often when I read her books, I think I know exactly what she means--I understand that completely although on the surface the action of the character may seem out of character. People are a bundle of contradictions and she shows that so well which makes the suspense all the more addictive.

I bought this book because I fell in love with Beauman's creative and enthralling writing style in "Destiny". This story was not quite as good, took a while to warm up, but still definitely worth the time. Sally Beauman creates interesting diverse characters that feel like real people and nearly leap off the page.
