A decade ago someone killed Charles Ashland. The police suspected the wife Melinda, a victim of spousal abuse possibly abetted by her three close friends Lacy, Cassidy and Kira. However, none talked and no evidence surfaced to point at the culprit even the corpse was never found as apparently the four friends disposed of it and the murder weapon, Lacy¿s gun.----- The quartet as well as the townsfolk including Police Chief Rick Summer believes one of the women is the killer. When a body surfaces the Ashland family pressures the police to find the killer. However, someone decides to wait no longer for ¿justice¿ to take place. The assailant begins with midnight calls taunting the females and stalking to drive fear into them. Then Cassidy is murdered. Rick who has always loved Lacy, vows to keep her safe, but wonders if she killed Charles or knows who did as a second murder occurs.----- This thriller starts off at hyper speed (even the opening sentence) and never slows down until the final climax. The four prime females are fully developed characters with each potentially being the killer of Charles. That is the key to the suspense as even Rick who loves Lacy knows she might have murdered Charles out of compassion for her friend Melinda now he feels he must keep her safe as someone apparently his avenging the decade old homicide. Debra Webb spins a delightful thriller.----- Harriet Klausner
