about

Booze, lies, and family drama will not deter young lawyer Abby Callahan from navigating the sordid underbelly of The Big Easy to find out why girls keep showing up dead in Louis Armstrong Park.

Twenty-seven-year-old Abby Callahan moved to New Orleans to escape her past screw-ups in her small hometown. While out running, she sees a woman who has been raped and discarded, like trash. Abby finds herself selfishly pursuing the case to help her career, even though the victim is reluctant. The trial starts and the judge is suddenly arrested, but Abby must return to New York when her father commits suicide. Managing her grief and complicated family dynamics, she tries both to rekindle and remedy her old romances. But she is pulled back to The Big Easy when her client goes missing.

As more girls turn up dead—with Abby as their common connection—Abby decides to play detective with her journalist friend Jill Lejeune. Abby feels responsible for finding her client alive, even as she comes to terms with her past mistakes, including how her lies allowed someone else to go to prison.

Abby discovers she’s in over her head when Jill is beaten because she’s been mistaken for Abby. She wonders if everyone in her life is connected to this case. Abby seems to be the only one committed to finding the truth and decides to stop listening to everyone before she ends up at the morgue. A last-ditch call to the FBI and a rendezvous at the shipping warehouse lead Abby to one last dangerous situation where she finds out betrayal was in front of her the whole time.

Editorial Reviews

"McCourt's absorbing tale evolves from a deceptively simple courtroom drama to a dizzyingly complex thriller....The protagonist primarily analyzes evidence that other people have amassed, but the author shows how her quick wits allow her to put the final pieces together. Abby's uncertainty over whom to trust results in some tense scenes, and the book ends on a sensational cliffhanger.  An engaging mystery that readies a charismatic and savvy protagonist for her own series."
