A retirement home hides a surprising amount of intrigue and danger in this novel by a two-time finalist for the Lefty Award for Humorous Mystery.   A failing retirement home needs to be turned around—and unfortunately, the job has been given to a financial hatchet man who dislikes old people. But his foray into the world of geezers and geezerettes will turn out to be a life-transforming experience.   He must deal with a suspicious death, a scam, a hit man, an unexpected romance—and retired magician Jerry Rhine and his five wacky sidekicks known as the Jerry-atrics. And he will face the most important decision of his life when he uncovers the secret behind an unusual murder…   Praise for Mike Befeler’s mysteries:   “Witty, clever, and wholly entertaining.”—Margaret Coel, New York Times-bestselling author of the Wind River Mysteries   “Delightful.”—Maggie Sefton, New York Times-bestselling author of the Knitting 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.
