A beautiful young woman is dead in the bathroom of her home. Her husband - a promising young cop named Archie Wildcraft - is shot in the head but still alive. It looks like an attempted murder/suicide, but something tells Detective Merci Rayborn that there's more to the story. When the suspect vanishes from his hospital bed, he draws Merci into a manhunt that leaves the entire department questioning her abilities and her judgment. Is Archie's flight the act of a ruined mind, or a faithful heart? Is his account of the night his wife was murdered half-formed memory, or careful manipulation? Merci and Wildcraft head for a collision in a dizzying succession of cryptic clues, terrifying secrets, and painful truths. Download and start listening now!

    " An interesting read, even though Merci isn't as likable as some of the other Parker protagonists. "

    " I liked this book and hope that T. Jefferson Parker will go back to this series. Merci is an unique police detective, I especially like her relationship with her father and how she copes with being a woman detective in a predominantly male department. "

    " Good detective story. Merci Rayborn has to investigate a double shooting of a fellow officer and his wife by either an unknown assailant or by the officer. The more Merci investigates the more it points to the husband. Her gut is telling her otherwise, but how is she going to prove it. Especially when the mews papers and a lot of the police are already convinced he did it. This is the 3rd and last of the Merci Rayborn series. "

    " I had some trouble getting into this book. I think that T Jefferson Parker is an excellent writer but I have also been disappointed with him at times. He is great at giving heart to his characters, and yet that doesn't seem to carry the entire weight of a who-dunnit. In Black Water there are several "beautiful losers" who captured my own heart. Unfortunately the plot seemed not to grab me and I labored through until midway when I decided to stick it out.It's not a bad book; but it is frustrating knowing how good Parker can be and yet, he doesn't always seem to reach that pinnacle. I wonder what's going on with him. There are still plenty more of his books that I plan to read. "
