Publisher's Summary

A premier adult community with everything you could possibly want, need, or dream of doing in your retirement years is just a golf cart ride away - now the scene of a murder.
In this John Grisham-style mystery, Matt Royal, the retired lawyer turned beach bum is called back into the courtroom to defend his girlfriend J. D. Duncan's Aunt Esther, who lives in the sprawling North Central Florida retirement community of The Villages. A best-selling author has been murdered after a book signing, and Aunt Esther has been arrested. Matt has a history with the local sheriff - one which may not bode well for his client.
Matt reluctantly suits up for the courtroom, and J. D. takes a leave from the police department to go undercover. A bizarre specter from the past haunts their investigation every step of the way. As they delve further into the case, the pieces of the puzzle refuse to fall into any kind of coherent pattern. Jock Algren arrives with his special skill set to expose the real murderer and free Aunt Esther, but to no avail. Not until the case goes to trial and the evidence is revealed does the truth emerge - and a strange kind of justice prevails.

Totally Enjoyed

This is the second Griffin novel that my wife and I have listened to on our ride back from the Longboat Key area in Florida to New Hampshire. We totally enjoyed it and it kept our interest throughout. The story is enhanced by reference to places we are familiar with at Longboat, Sarasota and the Villages. And, the courtroom drama gave this book some added appeal.

Another good Matt Royal adventure

I love this series because the characters are familiar and easy to love. Narration is always superb. I had technical difficulties with it though and when I called the girl could barely speak English and couldn't understand what the problem was. I THINK I heard the whole book but am not sure. If everything is working you will enjoy the story.
