Her husband's pride and joy, Elise Laird is a trophy wife ten years his junior. Rumour has it that she married him for his money. They couldn't be more wrong. When detectives Duncan Hatcher and DeeDee Bowen are summoned to the sumptuous home of Judge Laird in the middle of the night, they know that discretion is key to their investigation - and to keeping their jobs. Elise has shot and killed a burglar in self-defence, but there is something suspicious about the whole affair. Determined to learn the truth, Duncan puts his career - and his integrity - in jeopardy. Then Elise seeks him out and makes an incredible allegation. His first instinct is to dismiss it as the lie of a guilty suspect but then Elise goes missing . . .
