Thirty-one-year-old Natalie Price has a tough job as a superintendent in the Massachusetts prison system. She rules over inmates' lives just before they get released. Natalie gets the biggest challenge of her career when her good friend Maggie Austin, a college professor who allowed inmates to take her classes, is brutally murdered. Grief and guilt haunt Natalie, for she persuaded Maggie to offer the course, and recommended she teach Dean Thomas Walsh, a convicted rapist-and the prime suspect in the murder... |
But is Walsh as guilty as he looks, or as innocent as he claims? The handsome con was mad
about Maggie-and she returned the compliment. Now Natalie must face disturbing questions
about the friend she thought she knew so well. A friend whose unbridled promiscuity has
made suspects of all the men obsessed by her, including Natalie's soon-to-be-ex-husband.
This is a case strictly for the police, but for Natalie, it's personal. Now nothing will stop her from investigating-not even a killer who's just added her to his list...
