I've never read any books by Rebecca Forster before. I plan on reading more. This was an excellent mystery. The plot was focused on the murder of a California Supreme Court judge.
Josie Bates is a lawyer that appears to be hiding from her past. She spends a lot of time in introspection regarding a case in her past. Someone from further back in her past approaches her, out of nowhere, to defend her daughter in a murder case. The self-absorbed mother makes demands on a defunct friendship that places Josie in a emotional dilemma.
Forster puts together an intricate plot with complex characters and enough twists and turns to satisfy a fan of the Monte Carlo Rally.
I recommend the book.
