This story has the freshest plot and characters. That made the book much better than comparable books. In the beginning we are introduced to Ellen Grace, who worked for the Greendale Chronicle. One of her main assignments may have been a major detriment to herself. It was to interview the Grahams, who moved into the hoity toity old Halsy House. Ellen thought nothing of this interview.

While there, she stayed to help them unpack and to get closr to Sophia. Graham kept his distance. Then one day she saw him near his job at Colombia University with another woman. Ellen followed her ALL the way home. Not long after, Ellen was invited to a party Sophia was throwing, along with a secret for her and Graham. This is when the cow kicks the farmer! Sophia spots Ellen at the party and goes ballistic, screamng to get her out of her house.

Ellen, nor us readers, can understand why Sophia is so upset. Ellen ran upstairs to try to find out. Next thing you know, you will have to read the book to find out!!!! Disappointed or underwhelmed, absolutely not! Claudia Riess is guaranteed to blow your mind with this wonderful suspense mystery thriller!

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 148082786X, Hardcover)

Ellen Davis's husband left her for another woman. Post-divorce, she's trying to reassert her independence and lands a job as a reporter for her local newspaper. One of her assignments is covering weekly items on the police blotter, which is how she gets to know Lieutenant Pete Sakura-a handsome, witty Japanese- American Ellen is drawn to immediately. Another of Ellen's assignments is interviewing for the paper's "Around The Town" column, and in this capacity, she meets Graham and Sophia Clarke, newcomers to the community. He's an administrator at Columbia; she's his beautiful Greek wife. Ellen and Sophia become fast friends, so it comes as a great shock when Sophia ends up dead. Sophia Clarke is found murdered, and to all appearances, Ellen is the last person to have seen her alive. When Ellen's fingerprints are found on the murder weapon, she's arrested, and evidence steadily mounts against her. Ellen takes matters into her own hands as her romantic feelings for Pete intensify. Closing this case could either save Ellen or lead to her destruction. "A determined amateur detective who'll garner fans with her refusal to either back down or give up." -Kirkus Reviews.
