Forgiveness has its limits. Revenge doesn't.
On a sweltering hot summer day, Troy Seligman witnesses a murder out on the still waters of Carlisle Lake. A woman strikes Dr. Gregory Neal in the back of the head with a boat hook, knocking him over the side of his yacht. Troy sees it all, and there’s no doubt in his mind that the murderer is Dr. Neal's socialite wife, Linda. It sounds like an open and shut case for the private detectives of Snowe Agency.
Not everything is as it seems, however.
It becomes quickly obvious that the dentist was not the pillar of society he was thought to be. With a long string of infidelities to his name, just about everyone in his life has motive for murder—including his wife, secretary, business partner, mistress, and all three of his dental hygienists. All of them, however, have alibis, even his wife. She was thirty miles away at the time, in front of dozens of witnesses, and recovering from shoulder surgery, to boot.
Troy knows what he saw, but the fact that he was projecting outside his body when he witnessed the murder makes his story problematic at best. Caught now in a tawdry web of sex, lies, and jealousy, he and fellow detectives Bethany Hale, Seth Augustine, and Callista Lee will put their skills to the test to pick up the killer’s trail before someone else on Dr. Neal’s list gets the hook.
