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.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Reader Bernadette Dunne capably depicts Marty with practical intelligence and a smart sense of humor, while painting the beguiling 40-something Louisa with feminine charm. The masculine voices, especially Marty’s college-age son and the curmudgeonly presiding judge, are equally compelling.” AudioFile
“Connors is a born storyteller.”  Perri O’Shaughnessy
“A nicely detailed Cape Cod setting, appealing and realistically rendered characters, and an engaging romantic relationship between Marty and Harry make this an enjoyable legal thriller.” Booklist
“Similar in style to novels by Lisa Scottoline and Perri O'Shaughnessy.” Library Journal
