9780061260384: A Killer's Kiss

There's nothing easier—or more dangerous—than falling into bed with an old lover.

Especially when you're Victor Carl.

Once upon a time, Victor was engaged to a woman named Julia. She was beautiful and elegant and not the kind to end up with a second-rate lawyer on the edge of insolvency. Victor always assumed she'd burn him, and she did. Now she's back, trailing an expensive perfume that reeks of trouble.

Julia's husband has been murdered, her fingerprints are all over the crime scene, and $1.7 million in cash is missing. Julia is suddenly in desperate need of a fall guy. Is that why she turned up on Victor's doorstep on the night of the murder, with her lipstick fresh and her heels high?

Suddenly, Victor Carl, a man who has spent a lifetime making bad decisions for the worst reasons, is no longer fighting to rekindle a lost love. He's fighting to save his life.

About the Author:

New York Times bestselling author William Lashner is the author of seven suspense novels that have been published in more than a dozen languages throughout the world. A graduate of the University of Iowa's Writers' Workshop, he lives with his family outside of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

From Publishers Weekly:

Starred Review. At the start of bestseller Lashner's superior seventh crime thriller to feature Philadelphia DA Victor Carl (after 2006's Marked Man), two police detectives pay Carl a late-night call to inform him that Dr. Wren Denniston, the husband of Carl's former fiancée, Julia, was found shot to death in his Chestnut Hill mansion earlier that evening. Since Carl, known for his malleable ethics, had been entertaining Julia at his apartment shortly before the detectives' arrival in an effort to revive their relationship, he becomes a prime suspect in the doctor's murder. Unsure whether his lover is setting him up, Carl must dodge a rogue's gallery of villains who had their own reasons for wanting Denniston out of the way before he can uncover the real culprit and figure out Julia's true feelings for him. Chandler and Hammett fans looking for a fix will be well rewarded. (Sept.)
