Nine New York Times bestsellers and more than twenty million books in print have affirmed Judith McNaught's stature as the reigning monarch of superb storytelling. Now, she creates breathtaking suspense and harrowing plot twists In her most masterful, enthralling novel yet. Night Whispers A policewoman in a small Florida community, Sloan Reynolds knows that her modest upbringing was a long way from the social whirl of Palm Beach, the world inhabited by her father and her sister, Paris. Total strangers to Sloan, they have never tried to contact her -- until a sudden invitation arrives, to meet them and indulge in the Palm Beach social season. A woman who values her investigative work more than a Dior dress, Sloan is unmoved by the long-overdue parental gesture. But when FBI agent Paul Richardson informs her that her father and his associates are suspected of fraud, conspiracy, and murder, Sloan agrees to enter into her father's life -- while hiding her true profession. Sloan's on top of her game until she meets Noah Maitland, a multinational corporate player and one of the FBI's prime suspects -- and finds herself powerfully attracted to him, against her deepest instincts. When a shocking murder shatters the seductive facade of the wealth and glamour surrounding her, Sloan must maneuver through a maze of deceit and passion, to find someone to trust -- and to decipher the truth behind those terrifying whispers in the dark.

Is Noah Maitland the hero in this novel or is this story all about Sloan Reynolds only? Noah Maitland: bystander; not much participation as the story develops.
Would have given it 4 stars, but I never did find out what Noah actually did for a job. It just felt like the end was a little more rushed than it needed to be.
I'm a bit out of my genre here, and I'm seriously not a romance fan (unless of course it's slash fanfiction), so take that as context, if you will, for the two stars. I pretty much rolled my eyes through most of the characterization - it all seemed incredibly light and fluffy, and then the sheer wal...
