The New York Times bestselling author returns with a chilling story of murder and betrayal in high society Savannah
Her husband's pride and joy, Elise Laird is a trophy wife ten years his junior. Rumour has it that she married him for his money. They couldn't be more wrong. When detectives Duncan Hatcher and DeeDee Bowen are summoned to the sumptuous home of Judge Laird in the middle of the night, they know that discretion is key to their investigation - and to keeping their jobs. Elise has shot and killed a burglar in self-defence, but there is something suspicious about the whole affair.
