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.

Quotes & Awards

  • “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.”

    " Louisa is one slick lady. She goes to one of her old boyfriends when she needs an attorney. Gets his lady friend to be her attorney. Finds a boy toy, with her husband just missing. Goes to jail with her stepdaughter pushing for that. This is a good story line. I liked it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jennifer | 5/30/2013

    " I would give this book a grade of only fair in a series of books that are generally much better than fair. If you like courtroom drama/mysteries, this series is generally a good choice. This particular book was somewhat uninspired. I was able to see the "whodunnit" almost immediately. "

    " Not nearly as good as Absolute Certainty. Some good characters and a few interesting plot elements, but mostly pretty boring. "

    " I like other Rose Connors books but this was a disappointment. Good reading for 3/4 of the book but then the neat ending ruined it. "
