Overview

From the moment Jake Ryder saw Zoë Harper, he was transfixed. She was perfection. The fact that she felt the same went beyond his wildest expectations. She was out of his league in every way; the kind of girl a Midwestern boy only dreams of finding. When she agreed to marry him, Jake felt he had found paradise. Four years later, paradise became hell.

Zoë dies unexpectedly, leaving Jake devastated, but he doesn’t realize this is only the beginning. Suspected of murder, he runs up against a savvy San Francisco Inspector, Peyton Brooks, and her partner, Marco D’Angelo. They are certain they have their man. After all, ninety percent of murders are committed by the victim’s significant other. However, they have no murder weapon, no motive, and a suspect who anticipates their every move.

Pressured by Zoë’s socialite mother to end the case and give the family closure, Peyton and Marco begin a campaign of isolation against Jake, hoping he will break and confess to the crime, but Jake decides the only way he’s going to survive this nightmare is to do some investigating on his own.

What he discovers will shock everyone involved and leave him broken and alone. When you are accused of murdering a socialite’s daughter, you soon learn you have no friends.

The writing style is a little rough, but ultimately it ends up being a good little murder mystery.  It's a quick read.
