Heiress Terri Jackman was brutally murdered, and everyone-including Minneapolis Homicide detective "Mars" Bahr-believes that her abusive husband, basketball star Tayron "T-Jack" Jackman, did it. But he has an unshakeable alibi...
T-Jack was with Terri's parents and lawyer signing divorce papers when the killing took place. Now, to add insult to injury, he's pocketing a $100 million settlement-the price Terri's desperate parents paid to get her out of the marriage. Mars feels a burning need for justice in this case. But he's transferring out of Homicide in just ten day and facing a family crisis that could cost him his son. Is there time to find the flaw in T-Jack's perfect crime?
Soon Mars has hit the wall, which is broad and blue and looks like the new Chief of Police. Politics block his every shot...and so is a killer who has left no loose ends, just a path strewn with dead bodies. Because no one can squeal when they're as silent as the grave...

"K. J. Erickson delivers a thriller in The Last Witness, which opens with the discovery of a brutal murder. The victim is Terri Jackman, the well-known wife of Minnesota Timberwolves point guard Tayron "T-Jack" Jackman, a notoriously violent and possessive man, and she's found stabbed and beaten to death on her own kitchen floor. Most people - including investigating detective Marshall "Mars" Bahr - see T-Jack as the prime suspect. But it becomes clear immediately that T-Jack's alibi is ironclad: He was with her parents and her lawyer at the time of her death, signing their divorce papers - he couldn't possibly have done it." "Furthermore, what would be his motive? Terri's parents paid him $100 million to get her out of this abusive relationship. With his divorce and the money, T-Jack finally has the upper hand. Why risk everything to kill her? Mars, unhappy with the new chief of police and due to transfer to the department's "cold case" department in a matter of days, is directed, along with his partner, Nettie Frisch, to find the one flaw in T-Jack's story, or prove everyone in the city - the mayor, the press, the chief of police, and the public, not to mention Terri's grieving mother - wrong."--BOOK JACKET.
