Angeline Porter is back in this chilling, suspenseful page-turner about greed, family, lies, loyalty, love, and the limits of justice.
Former criminal attorney Angeline Porter is hiding from a Boston mob on the island of Kauai. But she’s tired. Tired of not being able to use her skills and lawyer’s mind. Tired of not being able to fight for justice. She drinks too much, and her best friend is a rescue dog.
But when she finds out she has a sister she never knew about, she flies to New Hampshire to meet her. Not only does she run headlong into a past of family secrets and lies, she also discovers this new sister has connections with the mob that’s out to kill her.
From the first paragraph to the last, Tainted Times 2 unfolds at a breakneck pace, each startling new revelation about Angeline’s troubled family adding to the book’s genuine emotional depth. A muscular, laser-focused, compelling new entry in this one-of-a-kind trilogy. --Tim Applegate, Author of Flamingo Lane and Fever Tree
