When life is murder, who can you trust?
One minute Mia Quinn is in her basement, chatting on the phone with a colleague at the prosecutor’s office. The next minute there’s a gunshot over the line, and Mia listens in horror as her colleague and friend Colleen bleeds to death. Mia’s a natural for heading up the murder investigation, but these days it’s all she can do to hold her life together. As a new widow with a pile of debts, a troubled teenaged son, and a four-year-old who wakes up screaming at night, she needs more time with her family, not less - and working Colleen’s case will be especially demanding. But Colleen was her friend, and she needs to keep her job. So she reluctantly teams up with detective Charlie Carlson to investigate Colleen’s death. But the deeper they dig, the more complications unfold - even the unsettling possibility that someone may be coming after her.
Lis Wiehl’s signature plot twists and relatable characters shine in this absorbing series debut...with an intriguing cameo from her best-selling Triple Threat series.

Maintaining Trust can be Dangerous
Mia Quinn a widow, single mother of two children, and overwhelmed by the heavy debt her deceased husband had hidden from her. She decided to return to work as a lawyer to keep her home.After viewing a video of a recent crime scene, she must make a decision that could cause her delicate house of cards to tumble. Dare she report her son's participation in the rave caught on tape. She must decide to tell the truth with her son. Knowing he was possibly facing a juvenile record and exploitation in the news media.She knows she has to go to her boss and identify her son as one of the teens involved in this recent crime. In spite of real bad consequences,Mia had her son tell the truth after she prepared the way rather than lied by omission.There were indeed consequences, but Mia and her son were ableto build up trust with her coworkers and with each other. He also learned from the process what it means to be a man and a responsible member of the greater community, She showed him through actions and support the importance of trustworthiness and that she had his back. To me she very different from most modern parents.
Mia was my favorite because she did not define herself as a victim despite the many problems she had in life at home or at work.
Couldn't say I was more interested in the plot and the character's development.The narrator's performance was well done. It did not take away from the story but enhanced it.
I did not want to just read it all at once because it was intense and realistic.
