Edgar Award Finalist: This Miami crime thriller by a New York Times-bestselling author is "an exhilarating debut and] a sizzling page-turner" (Publishers Weekly). Gail Connor is a fast-rising attorney in a major South Florida law firm, about to make partner--until her life is derailed by the discovery of her sister's body in the Everglades. What at first appears to be a suicide soon becomes a homicide investigation with Gail as the prime suspect. To defend herself, Gail must unravel the tangled web of her wild younger sister's life, which includes connections to drug traffickers, a Native American artifact, Gail's own estranged husband, and a handsome Cuban-American attorney, Anthony Quintana, to whom Gail is strongly attracted. But who can she trust as she fights for justice for her sister and herself? Written by a former prosecutor, the first book in the New York Times-bestselling Suspicion series delivers "a sun-drenched variation on the work of Scott Turow and Patricia Cornwell" (Library Journal).
About the Author
Barbara Parker was trained as a lawyer and worked as a prosecutor with the state attorney's office in Dade County, Florida, before moving into a private practice that specialized in real estate and family law. She earned a master's degree in creative writing in 1993, and her first legal thriller was Suspicion of Innocence (1994), which was followed by another seven titles featuring her two lawyer protagonists, the sometime-lovers Gail Connor and Anthony Quintana. While writing the Suspicion series, she also produced Criminal Justice, Blood Relations, The Perfect Fake, and The Dark of Day. Suspicion of Innocence was a finalist for the Edgar Award from the Mystery Writers of America, and two of her titles, Suspicion of Deceit and Suspicion of Betrayal, were New York Times bestsellers. Parker died in March 2009, at age sixty-two.
