Publisher's Summary

Born into a fine old Charleston family, Hammond Cross is determined to be the city's next district attorney - without sacrificing his integrity. Prosecuting the sensational murder of real estate magnate Lute Pettijohn could be his ticket into the office. Yet while Hammond anticipates success, someone near him is plotting his downfall. Steffi Mundell, colleague, ex-lover, and rival for the DA's office...Rory Smilow, the homicide detective without equal and Hammond's avowed enemy...the wily and beautiful Davee Pettijohn, Lute's widow and Hammond's lifelong friend, who's too honest to mourn the husband she despised...and Hammond's prime suspect, the mysterious woman who shares the secret that would be fatal to Hammond's ambitions. Written in a narrative that grabs and doesn't let go, The Alibi is a top-notch crime novel - and more. With sensitivity and insight into the human condition, Sandra Brown also creates a forceful psychological portrait of a man in moral turmoil, who must make difficult choices between his personal passions and the demands of his conscience.

Another great work by a master storyteller

This is a great murder mystery by Sandra Brown, a master storyteller with the gift of intrigue, plot twists, deception, and the inevitable shocking conclusion. She is a wordsmith with both characters and locations, always making us feel as if we are there with her as she describes settings with a tapestry of colors, senses, desires, and subtle nuances. Old fans will recognize her trademark style in this novel, and newcomers will soon be captivated by her talents.

Great Book, Poor Narration

I really liked the book, but the narration was BORING. There was no excitement in his voice and I found myself rewinding parts because he would drone on and on.

I will not buy another book the narrator is reading.
