    • Abstract:
      Summary: Everyone thought Rashad May and Gideon Wise were happily married. That is, until Rashad was convicted of his husband's murder. Four years later, Rashad's brother contacts Ray Lawless--Minnesota private investigator Jane Lawless's father and the original defense attorney on the case --with potential evidence of a wrongful conviction. When the case is reopened, Jane and her father must work together to attain justice for a grieving widower. Who actually killed Gideon and why? There are suspects and motives galore, and Jane must discover the truth. She must also track down her missing brother, Peter, who was involved in the original trial, and who might be hiding secrets of his own.

Gideon Wise and Rashad May seemed happily married until Gideon was murdered in their apartment and Rashad went to prison for his husband's death. Now, four years later, Rashad's brother claims to have new evidence and wants Rashad's former attorney, Ray Lawless, to investigate and reopen the case. Ray's daughter, restaurateur and part-time private investigator Jane Lawless, agrees to look into the cold case. Suspects include Gideon's daughter and son-in-law, as well as a family of fine-art consultants, the Chenoweths. Everyone has secrets, but Jane is shocked to discover that her brother, Peter, unexpectedly back from London, has secrets of his own involving the Chenoweth family. This intricately plotted mystery is filled with a cast of lying characters, and Jane has a complex, step-by-step investigation on her hands. Just as in life, the personal relationships are left unresolved. VERDICT Hart crafts a satisfying conclusion in her sequel to A Whisper of Bones; it's obvious why Mystery Writers of America named her a Grand Master. Fans of unreliable narrator mysteries may want to try this one, which has an entire cast of dodgy suspects. [See Prepub Alert, 2/4/19.]—Lesa Holstine, Evansville Vanderburgh P.L., IN

In MWA Grandmaster Hart's enjoyable 26th Jane Lawless mystery (after 2018's A Whisper of Bones), Minneapolis restaurateur and part-time PI Jane agrees to help her defense attorney father get a retrial for Rashad May, who was convicted of murdering his husband, Gideon Wise, after new evidence points to Rashad's innocence. Shaky timelines, some conflicting evidence, and an extensive pool of suspects complicate Jane's efforts. Unfortunately, one of those involved in the case is Jane's troubled documentary-filmmaker brother, who suddenly shows up. As Jane angers locals with her probing questions, her sidekick, theater maven Cordelia Thorn, does her own sleuthing. Together, they track leads, ponder red herrings, and find there's far more to Gideon's murder than meets the eye. Another death and an attempted murder raise the stakes. A few seasoned pros may figure out whodunit before the end, but this is a quibble. Distinctive characters and solid plotting underscore the strength of this long-running series. Agent: Deborah Schneider, Gelfman Schneider Literary. (Aug.)
