When PI Harry Brock commits himself to finding the killer of Henrico Perez‚ a prominent community activist‚ he soon learns that Gwyneth Benbow‚ the recently divorced‚ wealthy and beautiful socialite who hired him‚ is the leading suspect.
When Gwyneth is wounded in an attempt on her life‚ Harry learns that she was a suspect in her first husband’s death some years before. As Harry begins to unravel the contradictions‚ he is attacked and nearly killed. Once out of the hospital‚ he finds evidence to suggest Gwyneth’s ex-husband may have reason to kill both her and Perez.
Meanwhile‚ learning that his first wife is dying of cancer‚ Harry is drawn back into painful and unresolved conflicts from earlier in his life. The action comes to a dramatic conclusion when the killer invades Benbow’s house and attempts to kill Gwyneth and Harry.
Set in Southwest Florida‚ this fast-paced PI novel is brimming with atmosphere and loaded with action.
