A chilling murder shocks a small Wisconsin town.
True crime writer Leah Nash is stunned when police investigating the murder of a beautiful young college professor focus on her ex-husband Nick. Leah has no illusions about her ex, but despite his flaws, she just can’t see him as a killer. Reluctantly, she agrees to help Nick’s attorney prove that he isn’t.
But Nick’s lies make it hard to find the truth, and when a damning piece of evidence surfaces, Leah plunges into doubt. Is she defending an innocent man or helping a murderer escape? She pushes on to find out, uncovering hidden motives and getting hit by twists she never saw coming. Leah’s own flaws impede her search for the truth. When she finds it, will it be too late to prevent a devastating confrontation?
This is my first book in the Leah Nash Mystery Series – and WOW! I can’t wait to get my hands on the first four to get more of the backstory. I’m not a fan of starting a series unless I can from book one; but the blurb grabbed ahold of me. The entire flow of the story from the setting to the mystery to characters — it’s all strong! Leah’s strength and forward-looking attitude are shaken when she has to confront an assortment of flaws from her past, including her ex-husband. I would have liked to have a little more background on a few aspects of the mystery that came up; but once everything pulled together, I connected the dots. Such a strong, intriguing read!
