Murder, money, and marriage pack a triple treat in this absorbing, character-driven crime novel from Thomas Perry.

 

When Los Angeles P.I. Phil Kramer is shot dead on a deserted suburban street in the middle of the night, his wife, Emily, is left with an emptied bank account and a lot of questions. How could Phil leave her penniless? What was he going to do with the money? And, most of all, who was the man she thought she married? Meanwhile, Jerry Hobart has some questions of his own. It''s none of his business why he was hired to kill Phil Kramer. But now that he''s been ordered to take out Kramer''s widow, he senses a deeper secret at work-and maybe a bigger payoff from Ted Forrest, the mysterious wealthy man behind the hit.

Read from the Book

1 Phil Kramer walked down the sidewalk under the big trees toward his car. It was quiet on this street, and the lights in the houses were almost all off. There was a strong, sweet scent of flowering vines that opened their blooms late on hot summer nights like this one?wisteria, he supposed, or some kind of jasmine. There was no way to limit it because there wasn''t anything that wouldn''t grow in Southern California. He supposed his senses were attuned to everything tonight. He had trained himself over the past twenty-five years to be intensely aware of his surroundings, particularly when he was alone at night. He knew there was a cat watching him from the safety of the porch railing to his right, and he knew there was a man walking along the sidewalk a half block behind him. He had seen him as he had turned the corner?not quite as tall as he was, but well built, and wearing a jacket on a night that was too warm for one. He could hear the footsteps just above the level of the cars swishing past on the boulevard. He supposed the man could be the final attempt to make him feel uncomfortable?not a foolish attempt to scare him, but a way to remind him that he could be watched and followed and studied as easily as anyone else could. He could be fully known, and therefore vulnerable. The man might also be out walking for some reason that was completely unrelated to Phil Kramer''s business.
