It started with a haunting image: a Ford Explorer, iridescent in the moonlight and alone on a desolate stretch of beach. Its owner, Melissa Gibbons, has gone missing. Her husband says she flew the coop. But Los Angeles Deputy DA Rachel Knight is convinced otherwise: Melissa Gibbons has been murdered.
So begins the confounding case that Rachel must present before a disbelieving jury. A dissatisfied heiress and her philandering husband -- what really happened? The husband has a fiendishly convincing case that Melissa faked her own death and fled. But with the support of her trusty sidekick, Detective Bailey Keller, Rachel pieces together a much more sinister truth.
In this short, standalone Rachel Knight thriller, readers follow our savvy and riotously entertaining heroine through the surprising world of LA crime.
A great short story
A great, short, in-the-courtroom story featuring the super-fun Rachel Knight. It totally whets my appetite for the next novel GUILT BY DEGREES.
If I'm dead
Interesting. I paid for this and was enjoying it. Total rip off. Big disappointment. Only one chapter. Now I can't find the rest of the book to purchase. Should be against the law. Big fraud.
If I am dead
I was not aware that this was a short story. I was expecting more twists and turns and lawyer/investigator detail. Lacked intrigue. More a story of the prosecutors feelings then an intriguing plot. if this was a BOOK of short stories, I would have understood. .
