Gabriel and Ingrid Santerre are a wealthy, highly connected couple with a savage kink: In the privacy of a posh New York City hotel suite, they like to subject teenage prostitutes to extremely rough sex. This time, though, they've gone too far, and their victim is dead. As Gabriel goes out to buy a golf bag to hide the body in, Ingrid, strangely passive and long brutalized by her husband, suddenly feels remorse and calls the police. The two are swiftly taken into custody and separated; Gabriel calls in his high-powered lawyer and calmly schemes to frame his wife.
But NYPD detective Caroline Reese won't let him get away with it. Despite Gabriel's connections--reaching right into the district attorney's office--and a warning from her lieutenant that she's proceeding at her own risk, Reese finds the one woman who can lead her to the truth. Reese's quest is blocked not only by Gabriel's pull, but by a violent episode in her own past--one that has left her with a blind spot that keeps her from seeing the whole picture about Gabriel and his wife.
Bringing an exciting new voice to the noir thriller, Heather Lewis coolly and masterfully builds the tension until the novel's shattering--and deeply satisfying--payoff.

Gabriel Santerre, the sleek heavy in Heather Lewis's hypnotic, tightly written thriller The Second Suspect, has high level connections to New York politicians and police officials. But he's no match for tough, dedicated NYPD detective Caroline Reese, who is determined to prove that Gabriel killed a prostitute and is now trying to blame the murder on his abused, befuddled wife. In a literary ocean of cops of all sexes, ages, motivations and ethnic origins, Reese stands out as the kind of courageous, fallible officer you'd want your daughter to turn out to be. --Dick AdlerFrom the Publisher:
"A skin-prickling story that is full of strange surprises but saves the biggest one for the end."--Booklist
A thriller with a literary, tough-broad sensibility, a la Susanna Moore's In the Cut"--Paper
