What do you do when your life changes over night? This is what Nora Hamilton must deal with when her strong-as-nails, cop husband commits suicide. She refuses to believe that he would have killed himself, but everyone around her thinks otherwise. Nora discovers that he’s been prescribed sedatives, and that maybe her husband wasn’t who he seemed to be. But she refuses to give up her own investigation, and is relentless in her pursuit of the truth. The townspeople have other ideas, and they work hard to make sure deadly secrets stay buried.
I really enjoyed this debut novel from Jenny Milchman. This book is anything but predictable, and I couldn’t put it down. If you think you’ve got the mystery figured out, think again. You might not. If Milchman’s next book is anything like this one, I look forward to reading it.
