“Fans of Donald Westlake and Elmore Leonard will enjoy this bright caper novel” by the USA Today–bestselling author of the Murder She Wrote series (Publishers Weekly).   Engineer Carlton Smythe feels bored in his marriage—and once he meets a mysterious woman in a bar during a trip to Buenos Aires, he becomes desperate to find the funds he needs to run off with her and start a whole new life far from his native Canada. That’s when he comes up with an audacious moneymaking scheme that draws on his professional expertise. What would certain parties pay for advance knowledge of a massive US power outage?   But to pull it off, he will need to do business with some wholly undesirable criminal elements—and that’s when things start to spin wildly out of control . . .   “A wonderful read.” —Michael Palmer, New York Times–bestselling author

    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.
