Publisher's Summary

Hailey Dean is in trouble again - and this time it could be deadly.

Hailey Dean, the prosecutor who's never lost a case, heads to Savannah as an expert witness on the sensational Julie Love-Adams murder trial, but she soon finds herself embroiled in a mystery and an unexpected love affair.

At the baggage claim, Hailey is greeted by the handsome Lieutenant Chase Billings. On their way to her hotel, they hear an all-points bulletin for a murder that has just been committed. When they race to the scene, they find Alton Turner, a courthouse sheriff known for being as neat as a pin. Only he's a hot mess now, lying sprawled in a pool of blood, severed in half by a garage door.

Never one to mind her own business, Hailey jump-starts Turner's murder investigation while juggling the Julie Love trial. The timing of the trial and murder could be a coincidence, but everyone knows there is no such thing in criminal law.

Next, Elle Odom, a gorgeous clerk, is poisoned at the courthouse cafeteria coffee bar. Then the police technician who helped find the missing handbag that contained Elle's lifesaving epinephrine autoinjector turns into alligator bait at an amusement park. And that's just the beginning.

With Lieutenant Billings falling hard for Hailey, she must dig deeper to find a killer with a very mysterious agenda - knowing full well that the next murder victim may very well be herself.

Predictable

If you followed the Scott and Laci Peterson case at all, you'll quickly realize this is that story with some fluff thrown in to mask it.

The narration is ok, but her forced southern accent is a bit hard to listen to and her voice isn't quite deep enough to pull off the male speakers in the story. Not her fault, just an observation.

Ok if you want some background noise to accompany an afternoon of errands or household chores.

Once bitten twice shy

This was a tediously written book narrated by a woman who sounds like a female William Shatner, only he had the decency never to attempt a Southern accent. There was so much extraneous information that the author rushed the ending horribly, but by that point I didn't care who did it or why. Never again.

Good Story Bad Narration

The story line is great. The narration was not so good. Whenever the narrator tried to sound like a guy, it sounded really dumb. it made it difficult to follow who was talking.

Pleasantly Suprised

I wasn't sure about this book at first. Ms. Grace told a good story.. There were several twists as the story unfolded. I was pleasantly surprised.
