MYSTERY THRILLER
Released: Jan. 6, 1993

BOOK REVIEW

CONFLICT OF INTEREST by Nancy Taylor Rosenberg
MYSTERY THRILLER
Released: Feb. 6, 2002

"Despite the conventionally metaphoric title, there's no serious conflict of interest either on the surface of this glossy soap or beneath the emperor's clothes. Betrayed fans may feel that Breach of Contract is more like it."
