Who murdered Michael Winslow?  Attorney Jack Lindsay doesn’t know, but his professional curiosity has been aroused and now he wants to find out.  Is Michael’s wife, Amanda, a grieving widow or a cold-blooded killer?


Amanda Winslow has no desire to relive one of the worst days of her life, yet Jack is relentless in his pursuit of the truth.  His probing questions force her to analyze the horrible events of that day and to finally face an ugly and haunting past.


As their relationship progresses, they discover aspects of each other’s personality that aren’t readily apparent.  Their inner thoughts and actions let us know that nothing is as simple as it appears.  Plot twists abound and they both go through dramatic changes over the course of the novel.


The gripping developments in this story defy anyone to put the book down.  The reader is compelled to find out who murdered Michael and how Amanda will handle coming to terms with what had happened to her so long ago.


The conclusion is both astonishing and shocking.  One answer is revealed but a new question is raised.  Is murder ever justified?
