Professor Douglas Milbank turns a private school into a bloody murder scene when he kills his wife and three others before escaping. His eighteen-year-old son Jackson is guilt-ridden, thinking he could have prevented the massacre.

Insurance agent Wade Helinski is suspected of killing two of his wives. Everyone except his daughter Casey believes he's guilty.

Casey and Jackson accidentally meet in attorney Meredith Carlson's office and begin a dangerous affair that spins their lives further out of control.

Relative Innocence is a dark, suspenseful mystery about a spree killer's son, a suspected serial killer's daughter, and the attorney who befriends them. Like TIGHTER, TIGHTER, Lynn Kear's previous award-winning novel, RELATIVE INNOCENCE is set in St. James, a small Illinois suburb nestled on the banks of a river.

Well written book by Lynn Kear has every reader at the edge of their seat! Relative Innocence has a great plot, believable characters and plenty of twists and turns to keep you guessing till the last page. You won’t want it to end. What makes this one of my favorite is because of the characters displayed in this book. Their personalities are very strong. I also love the setting of the book, and the way Lynn Kear describes it makes me feel like I'm there as well. Overall, this book is amazing. The characters were so well developed but they weren't perfect. It really made you think about your ideals about justice and injustice, how far you would go to catch a killer. The tension and suspense were constant but they weren't overdone. I have to say the ending was the best. I suggest anyone who likes a good mystery/suspense novel to read this book.
