Summary

“I didn't guess whodunnit at all, so I was gripped from start to finish!” —Amazon Reviewer, five starsMoney may make the world go round, but it turns a village upside down, in this tense British crime thriller by the author of The Last Man.

The assistant to the millionaire property developer behind the controversy has been murdered and the son of a Saudi investor in the plan has been kidnapped. Has a protester taken things too far—or is something more sinister going on behind the scenes among the rich and powerful? As rumors and accusations of blackmail, bribery, and corruption fly, DCI Alex Fleming must dig up the truth in a pursuit that will lead him all the way to London . . .

    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.
