Stacy Hart’s friends say she was looking forward to her wedding to district attorney Connor Collins, and that she was supervising the renovation of their house. When Stacy is found dead by the contractor, people say everyone loved her and no one would want to kill her. Her brother, Max, is the only one honest enough to say if someone killed her, not everyone loved her. But, everyone around her does have secrets. Police detective Beau Antelope turns once again to forensic psychologist Dr. Pepper Hunt, asking for her help as he interviews witnesses and looks for a killer. There are all kinds of suspects, from strippers and bosses to the two survivors of a tragic high school accident and those who know the secrets of the priest who was transferred after sexually abusing young boys. The murder investigation is just intriguing enough to keep readers turning the pages looking for answers.
VERDICT Every suspect, along with Antelope and Dr. Pepper, takes a turn telling a version of the story. The accounts and short chapters break up the narrative, making it choppy and sometimes hard to follow. Overall, this might be too disjointed a read for most.
