When a beautiful corpse is found in a gazebo during a class reunion party, lawyer Sam McCain hopes to avoid involving himself in the ensuing complexities. However, the victim is the troubled daughter of a prominent family, and when local bad boy David Egan is accused of her murder, McCain finds himself saddled with a new client . . .and another tale of small-town murder in Black River Falls, Iowa.
McCain's heartbreaking, drag-racing client dies a fiery death in a car
crash -- an accident that becomes murder when it's discovered the car's
brake lines were cut. Working to clear Egan's name, McCain follows a
trail of shattered dreams, cheating spouses and dark secrets to a third
body lying lifeless in a bath, and to a tale of murder that embraces the
vast human emotions that drive lovers to love . . .and killers to kill.
