They try to keep their feelings in check but Maggie knows something is going on between them. Maggie's stepmother Nicole wants Max and will stop at nothing to get him. Bruce Borgie who works on the props is in love with Kristen and is intensely jealous of Max. In Telluride, Colorado, Max is hand gliding when a prop gun shoots him with two bullets and his glider rips as if somebody sabotaged it. The police have plenty of suspects who had a motive to kill Max but only one person had the guts to carry out the diabolical scheme.

Thom Racina is known for his many thrillers but his latest work is something a little different. It is aimed for a Jackie Collins audience and it succeeds admirably. The characters, both villain and innocent alike are simple to understand making it easy for the audience to feel a rapport between them. NEVER FORGET may be Collins-light, but is a novel that will not be forgotten by readers.
