Summary

A risky affair goes badly awry, in this crime thriller set in a deceptively idyllic English village from the author of The Things I Didn’t Do. In their pretty countryside home, Agnes and Fin appear to be just another happily married couple among their neighbours. But their attempts to conceive a child have failed, and amid the tension and pressure, they begin to experiment with their relationship. However, when Agnes engages in the same practice with her lover, the man across the street, it has far reaching consequences. When her lover dies, and the police start to investigate, Agnes fears the possibility of them closing in. But just how far will she go to save herself?

    From Arthur Ellis Award–winning Grand Master of Crime Writers comes the newest installment in the Joanne Kilbourn series
    		 
    When Libby Hogarth, the go-to lawyer for the rich or famous who have committed heinous crimes, comes to Regina to deliver the prestigious Mellohawk Lecture, she is met with a torrent of hostility and misinformation. Libby Hogarth had successfully defended Jared Delio, a wildly popular national radio host, against charges of sexual abuse brought against him by three Regina women. Her no-holds-barred cross-examination of the women stirred up a rage that still smolders.
    		 
    Zack and Joanne Shreve’s commitment to protect Libby goes beyond the fact that in defending Delio, Libby had simply applied the principles at the root of the justice system. Zack and Libby share a history. They were the last two students to article with Fred C. Harney, a brilliant alcoholic lawyer who changed both their lives. Sawyer MacLeish, Libby’s associate, was like a much-loved third son to Joanne when he was growing up, and she fears that Sawyer will suffer collateral damage from any attack on Libby.
    		 
    Joanne’s fears are not groundless, and when the inevitable happens, Joanne, Zack, and their extended family must pick up the pieces.
