Summary

A West Virginia detective investigates a marriage that ended in murder in this mystery by the author of No Good Deed Left Undone.Methodical detective Sam Lagarde knows what it takes to solve a murder. But as for his personal life, he’s not certain how he managed to find romance at his age. The big mysteries for him have always been love and women . . .All the evidence in his latest case, the murder of Harold Munson, points to his wife, Charlotte, as the primary suspect. Aside from having the means and motive, she’s unbothered by the news of his death. She would much rather focus her time on her potentially Nobel Prize–winning cancer research and on quality time with her young lover. And when another body is found, she’s looking all the more guilty.However, dogged Detective Lagarde is not so sure. But identifying the real killer means diving deep into the unhappy couple’s dirty laundry and seeing who doesn’t come out clean. “A well-planned, well-conceived murder mystery. . . . There is so much attention to detail that you’re not reading the story, you’re living it.” — K.J. Simmill, author of the Forgotten Legacies series “A brilliant mystery that mixes science and suspense in just the right doses to keep you turning pages (and meeting interesting characters) until the end.” —Sherri Moorer, author of the Tanger Falls mysteries

    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.
