From the Publisher
The thirteenth in Gail Bowen''s beloved and award-winning Joanne
Kilbourn mystery series promises to be the best of them all: some
very bad things happen very, very close to home, and Joanne may
never be quite the same again.
"Security for any one of us lies in greater abundance for all of
us." For many years, this was the core of Joanne''s political
beliefs, but for a number of reasons, she has drifted away from it.
But on the day Joanne retires from her university teaching post,
she has a dream about her first husband (murdered many years ago),
and this line comes back vividly in it.
Soon, she is forced to experience the truth of what, for most of
her life, had just been a good closing line for a political speech.
The night after Jo and Zack have dinner with Zack''s colleague
Margot and one of his law firm''s biggest clients, the developer
Leland Hunter, Jo and Zack''s house is blown up. They''re at the
lake with daughter Taylor and their dogs, but the house is
destroyed. And that is only the first of several terrible
incidents. It isn''t long before Joanne is witness to events far
more distressing than even a destroyed home. She begins to
understand what it''s like to live in a world where she can count
