The winner of the 2002 Mary Higgins Clark Award returns with Cape Cod attorney Marty Nickerson in a riveting new legal thriller.
At the urgent request of Harry Madigan, Marty takes on the defense of Louisa Rawlins, a woman suspected of murdering her wealthy husband. Harry is Marty's law partner, her lover, and, coincidentally, Louisa Rawlins' ex-lover. Glamorous and charismatic, Louisa is the polar opposite of Marty. Though the evidence against Louisa is compelling, Marty's gut tells her that something doesn't quite fit. But as the trial progresses, Marty begins to doubt her own judgment.
Illuminating the law even as she entertains, Rose Connors is a consummate storyteller whose legal expertise and literary skills shine through on every page.
