When Dr. Caryn Dryden is found floating dead in her hot tub, homicide inspector Devin Juhle targets a suspect close to home: her husband, Stuart Gorman. After all, Stuart recently asked for a divorce...and he stands to gain millions in insurance. His alibi—that he was at his cabin on Echo Lake that weekend—doesn’t keep him out of hot water. But maybe a shrewd attorney will.
Gina Roake, a partner in Dismas Hardy’s firm, is eager to take on such a high-profile case, especially when the client’s innocence seems so easy to prove. Yet the more time she spends with Stuart, the more complicated her feelings become; she feels strangely drawn to him at first, then has to confront the possibility of a dark history lurking in his past. Desperate to know the truth, Gina calls in Wyatt Hunt to investigate. Before the facts are in, her client is on the lam; he’s already been tried in the press, and so he’s certain the courtroom won’t bring him any mercy either. Racing to a stunning conclusion as Gina uncovers disturbing answers, John Lescroart spins a chilling story of secrets, love, and lies.

Dr. Caryn Dryden is found dead in her hot tub. The number one suspect is her hot-tempered husband, Stuart Gorman, who stands to inherit millions but steadfastly claims to have been miles away at his mountain cabin. Although attorney Gina Roake has never handled a homicide, she is eager to defend Gorman since his innocence seems so easy to prove. But things change quickly. Reader David Colacci clearly captures Gorman's anger and disbelief as the case builds against him. He effectively articulates Roake's exasperation with her client's refusal to accept his perilous situation. Although there are several holes in the plot, Colacci carries the day with his smooth presentation. T.J.M.
