A Suggestion of Death
When a scared young woman calls in to a radio talk show, Colorado attorney Cinda Hayes hears her cry for help. Less clear is whether twenty-year-old Mariah McKay's charges -- that her father, a respected senatorial candidate, traumatized her as a child -- can be proved, or if her fragmented memories are evidence enough. With the clock ticking on the statute of limitations, Cinda must move fast to pursue the case. But when Mariah takes refuge among a militia group in the Boulder-area plains, Cinda's quest for the truth leads her into deadly territory -- where someone wants to keep the past wrapped tightly in darkness....
Marianne Wesson creates rich suspense -- and untangles the ethical issues behind the most compelling legal scenarios -- in her bestselling fiction starring Cinda Hayes.
