"Her cheating husband was murdered and she's the prime suspect. Proving her innocence is one thing. Evading a killer who wants her dead is something else."


Montreal ghostwriter Megan Scott falls under police suspicion when her husband and a female companion are found murdered. In what a Québec detective calls a crime of passion, startling evidence surfaces to also implicate Michael Elliott, a young investigative reporter who'd rather rub elbows with scumbags than live the posh lifestyle he inherited.

Clutched out of her comfort zone, Megan is flung into Michael's dark world of criminal investigation. As they make a last-ditch attempt to prove their innocence, an elusive enemy closes in and threatens their lives. Who wants them out of the way and why?

Their only path to freedom is to catch the twisted killer before they become the next victims. But not knowing who to trust or where to turn can have consequences that are just as lethal…

Loved character development kf Megan; not so much of Michael. His character is kind of weak all throughout but may change in next books. This story gives very good insight in how police investigate a murder and how a legal defense operates.

Murder & mayhem go a long way in this book. Very chaste, however, if extra marital affairs, ladies of the evening,& non graphic dead bodies, bother you. Then this book isn't right for you.

Really enjoyed.

This book seemed almost babyish. The main character was not likeable, and she was obviously in love with another man while her husband was still alive. Dumb book. Don't read.

Loved the story development Part of the way through I wonderd why the person I suspected was being ignored as the killer When I realized there was too much of the novel to and realizef that person would not have had the posibility to have contact with the other victims Yeah I finally started to suspect the actual killer Enjoyed well written novel

I would call this a n "OK bathroom read". Reminds me of Victoria Holt or Phyllis Whitney in depth of character and plot.
