Sometimes, a murder happens to someone who seems to have gotten exactly what he or she deserves. When the victim is a high-powered defense attorney, who specializes in putting scumbags back on the street, it seems even more so. Tue, Marie Corrigan is nobody’s favorite lady lawyer. But she does not deserve to die in the Presidential Suite of the Ritz-Carlton hotel either.
When Theresa MacLean’s daughter, Rachael, sends a message about a murder at work, Theresa MacLean immediately takes the call. Death is nothing new for her, all part and parcel of being a forensic investigator. For Rachael, a front desk clerk, it is a little different.
Wading through the trace evidence left behind by a myriad of hotel guests makes things even messier. Now more bodies are piling up behind Marie’s, so Theresa begins to wonder if Marie’s murder is part of something larger. As the clock ticks down and the danger inches closer to home, Theresa finds herself facing the possibility of a serial killer with a thirst for righteous revenge.
Ms. Black’s knowledge of forensic science and attention to detail give this novel a gritty, realistic feel. Readers will be immediately sucked into a vividly painted story with complex characters. This book contains graphic descriptions of violence, definitely not for those with queasy stomachs or weak knees.
