Frank May hates trouble, as a lawyer and as a guy. But it likes him just fine. For someone who practices wills and trusts law because it lies far from the scene of murder and mayhem, he has a knack for being caught up in it anyway.
Which is why he thought he was fortune's friend the night his wife stayed home from her book club meeting with a migraine. That very night the husband of the hostess was murdered. Frank hoped he could stay clear of this sordid affair. But that was just not going to happen....
The members of the club all came to believe that Frank and only Frank could solve the mystery. That was never his intention, but here too fate intervened. Despite himself, he became entangled in all the intrigues of the members. And in the end, he blundered his way to the dramatic secret that lay at the heart of the book club murder.
