Description

Carter Mills was a successful and well-known investment broker. He and his wife Loretta had an ideal marriage with three kids, a beautiful home, and even a condo in the Dominican Republic. But their storybook life ended on the day that Loretta fell in the shower and died. Carter tried to save her, he'd even tried to do CPR, but it wasn't enough. His beautiful wife and the mother of his children was gone.

When the police were called to the Mills home on a reported unconscious person after a fall, Sargeant Steve "Mac" MacIntosh knew in his bones that something wasn't right. Loretta had a deep gash in her skull that seemed too extreme to have happened from a fall. He noticed bruising on Loretta's body and a black eye that was so swollen, her eye was shut.

No. This wasn't an unfortunate accident. This was a homicide that had been staged to look like an accident. And now it was up to Mac to fit together the pieces of the puzzle that would lead him to the killer so that he could find justice for Loretta.

Featured Reviews

This book was sent to me by Netgalley for review. It is written by a talented and gifted author who surprises us in the end...maybe...not so much...I did guess part of it...who did it? Why? Really? Is it true? This story reads like true crime...the characters are just not all that likable...but that is to be expected in a murder mystery...the husband is just one that few women would want...the wife is mysterious and not all she professes to be. the children are there, but they are mostly in the background. This is definitely a cannot put down to the end kind of book. Don't start it if you are in a rush. Savor every chapter...try to determine the end...bet you won't be able to do that totally...enjoy...my question is why did this couple ever stay together?
