Description
Mary Higgins Clark Award-winning author Rose Connors returns with Cape Cod attorney Marty Nickerson in a riveting new legal thriller.At the urgent request of Harry Madigan, Marty takes on the defense of Louisa Rawlings, a woman suspected of murdering her wealthy husband. Harry is Marty's law partner. He's also her lover -- but he used to be Louisa's.Marty is simultaneously intrigued and disturbed by her new client. Louisa Rawlings is Marty's polar opposite. Glamorous and charismatic, she's entrenched in the good life, openly coveting every luxury money can buy. District Attorney Geraldine Schilling believes Louisa was motivated by greed, and to Marty, that motive seems all too plausible. It also seems too tidy. Marty's gut tells her the murderer was motivated by something far more personal.As the evidence against Louisa mounts, though, Marty begins to doubt her own judgment. The people she normally turns to for perspective are incapable of helping her. Her young associate, Kevin Kydd, is so bewitched by Louisa that he's in danger of jeopardizing his entire career. And Marty fears that Harry might be too....Illuminating the law even as she entertains, Rose Connors once again proves that she is a consummate storyteller whose legal expertise and passion for the law shine through on every page.

The winner of the 2002 Mary Higgins Clark Award returns with Cape Cod attorney Marty Nickerson in another riveting legal thriller.

Is it ever wise for an attorney to defend her lover's ex-lover?

At the request of her law partner and lover, Harry Madigan, attorney Marty Nickerson agrees to defend the beautiful Louisa Rawlings against the charge of first-degree murder in the bludgeoning death of her wealthy husband. Marty is both intrigued and disturbed by Louisa—she used to be Harry's girlfriend but is her own polar opposite. The DA believes Louisa was motivated by greed, but Marty's gut tells her the murderer was driven by something far more personal.

As Marty builds her client's defense, she encounters Louisa's handsome ex-husband, her surly stepdaughter, and the girl's deadbeat boyfriend. With the evidence against Louisa mounting, Marty finds she can't count on help from her male associates, who are dangerously bewitched by Louisa. Marty must rely on her own well-honed legal instincts and passion for justice to make sure a brutal killer doesn't go free.

Illuminating the law even as she entertains, Rose Connors is a consummate storyteller whose legal expertise and literary skills shine through on every page.
