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