A novel by

 
 
This is a thrilling contemporary hard-boiled noir mystery set in New York. When Detective Lenny Shaw is called to an exclusive address in one of New York's most affluent neighbourhoods, he knows this won't be a run of the mill case. Joyce Hauptman died suddenly after suffering a long-term chronic illness brought on by a stroke five years ago. She has been in a vegative state and has suffered many complications during this time, however, the death investigator suspects she didn't die from natural causes. Her husband, Charles, who cared for her at their home, is the obvious suspect, especially when it is revealed he stands to inherit $20 million. But Lenny quickly discovers that it isn't going to be that simple. As the evidence mounts, Charles maintains his innocence, but the corrupting influence of his powerful father-in-law soon comes into play, leading to a conclusion that is both violent and shocking.
