"Full of thrills and tension - but smart and human too." -Lee Child , #1 New York Times Bestselling Author of Jack Reacher Thrillers

When a famous plastic surgeon's decomposed body surfaces in Tampa Bay with a bullet in its head, Federal Judge Willa Carson's "little sister" is caught in a high-stakes game of greedy lawyers, blackmail and deceit. Carly Austin knew the victim too well. Does she know too much about the killer, too? Before Willa discovers the answer, Carly disappears. Can Willa save Carly from herself and the murderous conspiracy? Or have they killed Carly, too?

Free-sprited Judge Wilhelmina Carson is quick, witty and stubborn. She finds nothing is what it seems in a world where attractive women with enough money are made, not born, and beauty can cost your life. Judge Willa debuts in this fast-paced mystery filled with great characters, humor and suspense.

*formerly titled "Carly's Conspiracy"

good story & plot

A little slow in the beginning but pace quickens and it turns into an interesting who dunnit. Characters are well developed and believable. Best of all, the author relies on talent and her writing ability instead of graphic sex and violence! How refreshing! Will buy more from this author.

This is the first book by Diane Capri with the main character, a federal judge, Willa Carson. For various reasons it was the second book of this series I read. Fortunately, reading them out of order did not detract from my enjoyment or take anything away from the stories. Willa Carson is a strong willed judge in Tampa that seems to get personally involved in the murders of the rich and powerful society of affluent Tampa. She is married to a very successful restaurateur and is in a unique position to investigate the murder of a prominent Doctor in this book. There are many, well organized sets of clues and adventures that lead to a satisfying conclusion. (More so than the second book, which I did like, but thought the conclusion was a bit of a let down. Don’t get me wrong it is/was still a good read!) I look forward to now reading the third book of the series!

I like Diane Capri's books. I live in Tampa so I especially enjoy her descriptions of local sites. It is fun to read a mystery which often revolves around the rich and famous friends of the judge and her restaurant- owner husband. This book didn't disappoint, except that the writing felt a bit rushed.
