“This intricately woven, fast-moving mystery will keep readers guessing until the novel’s final confrontation.”
—Publishers Weekly

A USA Today bestseller. Named one of the best mysteries of 2001 by South Florida Sun-Sentinel. Nominated for an Anthony Award for Best Original Paperback.

A Kiss Gone Bad rocks big time. It’s an adrenaline-fueled, twist-filled thrill ride of pure, white-knuckled suspense. I read it in one sitting. I couldn’t put it down. I skipped meals. Jeff Abbott is a master, and A Kiss Gone Bad is a marvelous page-turner.”
—Harlan Coben, New York Times bestselling author of Tell No One

“Abbott’s latest effort is so exciting, shrewd, and beautifully crafted that it’s hard to see how it can fail to move him up several noise levels, into Crais, Lehane, Pelecanos and even Connelly territory….a book worth including on any year’s best list.”
—Chicago Tribune

“A breakthrough novel about the consequences of desire by a wonderfully talented writer.”
—Sharyn McCrumb, New York Times bestselling author of The Songcatcher

“One helluva book, written by one hell of an author. Terrific plot and compelling characters, penned by one of the best writers in the business.”
—John Gilstrap, bestselling author of Even Steven and Nathan’s Run

“The Texas Gulf Coast has needed someone like John D. MacDonald — someone who knows how to tap the steamy ambience of a place and fire its potential for crime fiction. In Jeff Abbott, the Gulf Coast has found its man. No one understands the darkness at the heart of rural America more than Jeff Abbott, and A Kiss Gone Bad marks a major new direction in his career. This novel hits with all the power of a Texas thunderstorm.”
 —Rick Riordan, Edgar Award-winning author of The Last King of Texas and New York Times bestselling author of the Percy Jackson series
