From the hot new suspense writer critics predict will have
Grisham fans "switching their allegiance in midstream"
comes a thrilling tale of love and murder set on the mean
streets and in the sleek society haunts of Atlanta. . . .
Sleeping with a client's gorgeous girlfriend may have been
the gutsiest move in Jack Hammond's formerly booming law
career, but it wasn't the smartest. Booted from his elite
law firm, Jack now scrapes by as a court-appointed
attorney, his client list a revolving door of small-time
drug offenders and petty thieves.
When his friend -- a computer whiz and former addict who'd
brought his life back from the brink -- is found dead in
his apartment with a syringe stuck in his arm, Jack knows
something is very wrong.
Where the cops see just another overdose, Jack sees a
murder. Investigating the case, he learns that his friend
was obsessed with a beautiful singer -- who also happens to
be half of the most popular power couple in Atlanta.
Talented and privileged, the spellbinding Michele Sonnieris
nevertheless a deeply troubled woman, plagued by secrets.
Against his better judgment -- and in a disturbing echo of
his earlier fall from grace -- Jack is pulled further and
further into her world, where he discovers more suspicious
deaths, all pointing toward a mysterious cover-up.
A volatile tale of love, betrayal, and murder shot through
with tenderness and poignant humanity, The Last Goodbye is
a riveting thriller with a thunderously beating heart, a
masterful page-turner that probes the meaning of love and
the burdens of the past.
