Summary

A brilliant murder mystery of shifting perspectives, motivations, and politics from the author of Rabbit Hole. The owner of Brookhaven Care Home has been stabbed to death in his office, and DS Ursula Pembridge is called out to investigate the murder of the prominent property developer. When Owen Caulfield, campaign staffer for the local Labour MP, arrives to find his boss’s planned visit has been cancelled due to the tragedy, he decides to stay and visit his elderly father instead. And so begins this uniquely compelling crime thriller. With each chapter told from a different point of view, Chains pulls us into the recent history of Britain and introduces us to adulterer and blackmailer, politician and private detective, environmentalist and killer—and reminds us that whether it’s about current events or criminal activities, we all see situations very differently . . .

    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.
