About The Book
Back to defend the ex-lover of Harry Madigan, attorney Marty Nickerson must juggle her own undeniable intrigue of her law partner and lover’s past and her gut feeling that this murder was driven by something far more personal than anyone suspects in this crime novel by award-winning author Rose Connor.
At the request of her law partner and lover, Marty Nickerson has taken on the case of Louisa Rawlings, the ex-lover of Harry, who happens to be Marty’s law partner and current lover. While defending Louisa against the charge of first-degree murder in the bludgeoning death of her wealthy husband, Marty finds herself both intrigued and disturbed by Harry’s ex-girlfriend, as the girls of his past and his present have nothing in common.
As Marty builds her client’s defense, she encounters Louisa’s handsome ex-husband, her surly stepdaughter, and the girl’s deadbeat boyfriend. But as evidence against Louisa mounts and Marty is unable to count on her male associates who are dangerously bewitched by Louisa, she finds she must rely on her own well-honed legal instincts and passion for justice to make sure a brutal killer doesn’t go free.
“An enjoyable legal thriller… a nicely detailed Cape Cod setting, appealing and realistically rendered characters, and an engaging romantic relationship.” – Booklist
