Mistakes, regrets, and murder.

Denver homicide detective Nick Ryan and Elizabeth Harper have a history of passionate mistakes and broken trust. They haven’t seen each other in five years after she married the man he despised. Now, her husband is dead, and the evidence points to her as the killer.

The woman Nick used to know wouldn’t have killed anyone. But she’s the prime suspect and has many reasons to want her husband dead. Hasty decisions have brought Nick and Elizabeth to a strange and bloody crossroads. He’s worried his feelings for her will help her get away with murder, and she’s worried they’ll land her in prison.

Fascinating Mystery

This was my first experience with Helen Starbuck's work, and I enjoyed it. The story was about a wife accused of murdering her husband, and the detective investigating the crime, who once was friends with the couple. The tale was complex and vacillated between the old question of did she do it or did she not, and the viewpoint of the wife and the detective. Connor Brannigan's narration was fine and kept my attention. I was given a free copy of the audiobook, and I have voluntarily posted this review.
