Additional Information

Infidelity is a gamble that when exposed, carries devastating repercussions. Add murder and the stakes go through the roof. Felix Anderson unwittingly learns this lesson and the costs are high. A one-night indiscretion, the subsequent slaying of his beautiful, young wife, and his own evasive behavior places him under a cloud of suspicion despite an ironclad alibi. Relentlessly shadowed by Detectives Monroe Waters and Kevin Conner, Feilx’s continual missteps cast doubt on his innocence. Complicating his predicament is a hefty insurance settlement, a dubious financial transaction and unpredictable ex-lover. Undeterred, Felix focuses on finding his wife's killer. As he attempts to put the pieces together Felix is propelled through a series of events that leave him no margin for error. Lawson Brooks explodes onto the literary scene with a suspenseful and smartly paced mystery.
