Edgar-nominated and bestselling author Lisa Turner’s hard-boiled Detective Billy Able returns in this dark Southern mystery about the murder of a dazzling Memphis socialite—and the scandals revealed in the wake of her death

The heart can be an assassin. Detective Billy Able knows that from experience.

Fresh from solving Memphis’ most sensational murder case, Homicide Detective Billy Able and his ambitious new partner Frankie Malone are called to a bizarre crime scene on the outskirts of town. A high society attorney has been murdered while dressed in a wedding gown. Billy is shocked to discover he has a very personal connection to the victim. When the attorney’s death exposes illegal practices at her family’s prestigious law firm, the scandal is enough to rock the southern city’s social world.

In a tale of the remnants of Old South aristocracy and entitlement, twisted by greed and vengeance, Billy must confront the secrets of his own past to have any chance at solving the murder of the girl he once knew. But as he seeks the truth, he’s drawn closer to an embittered killer bent on revenge—and eliminating the threat Billy poses.

Quotes & Awards

  • “[A] superb Southern Gothic mystery.”

    Eric Rickstad, New York Times bestselling author

  • “Turner gives new definition to Southern hospitality. Greed, deceit, fraud, and heartbreak are the watchwords as Billy and Frankie unravel their most complicated case to date. Each gets personally involved with aspects of the investigation as emotions run high. Turner deftly leads the reader through a maze of clues.”

    RT Book Reviews (4 stars)

  • “A well-wrought procedural that takes a hard look at the old South’s influence on the new.”

    Kirkus Reviews

  • “The old South looms large over this sultry, melodramatic tale…A shifting narrative, a keen sense of place, and a steady stream of suspects and red herrings propel the mystery to a satisfying conclusion.

    Publishers Weekly

  • “A spellbinding trek through Memphis, drenched in blues, blood, and black magic.”

    Barry Lancet, author of Japantown and Tokyo Kill

  • “Joel Richards…delivers a clear presentation; he uses pace and pitch to convey drama and keep the text moving, and his conversational tone for the main character pulls the listener into the action.”


  • “A fast-paced ride that skillfully interweaves the blues, Santeria curses, three unsolved murders, and a stunning, decades-old cover-up—a highly recommended follow-up to Turner’s Little Death in Dixie.”

    Keith Dixon, author of The Art of Losing
