Publisher's Summary

Jake Danser has it all: a beautiful wife, a house in the California hills, a high-profile job as a forensic psychologist. But he’s also got a mistress. And when Jake’s mistress is found strangled to death with his necktie, it’s up to him to prove he didn’t do it. But how can he, when all the evidence says he did?

Sharply written psychological crime fiction

This is a superbly written noir novel and another excellent entry in the Hard Case Crime series. Stansberry gives his main character, Jake Danser, a memorable narrative voice and keeps the reader wondering if the story Danser is telling is reliable or if we're being misled. L. J. Ganser's performance is top notch, perfect for the material. Highly recommended!
