Publisher Comments:

Rich and witty, the literary whodunits by Amanda Cross are a delight for readers who like their mysteries smart and suspenseful. Now comes the highly anticipated sequel to her Kate Fansler novel, Honest Doubt, which the Providence Journal called “one of [her] best books in years.” Here, Cross takes her beloved protagonist into uncharted territory, turning Kate Fanslers world upside down.

Just when Kate Fansler thinks life couldnt possibly hold any more surprises, she receives a phone call from Laurence, the eldest of her imperious brothers. But a woman as sharp as Kate knows that the moment one stops believing in lifes little bends in the road is the time when it has more twists in store.

Kate has always been different from the other Fanslers-a free and independent thinker in a family where propriety and decorum are prized above all. She has always assumed it was because she was the youngest and the only girl in the family. But over a drink with Laurence, Kates whole understanding of herself is thrown into question as he calmly tells her that a strange man came to his office claiming to be Kates father-and its quite possible that she is not a Fansler after all.

There are even more dangerous curves in the road for Kate Fansler, especially after she meets the man who calls himself her father. When more life-threatening secrets and lies emerge, Kate and the Fansler family are suddenly pitched perilously close to the edge of doom

From the Hardcover edition.


English professor and sleuth Kate Fansler returns and encounters a crime from the past that reveals life-threatening secrets and deceptions, pitching the Fansler family perilously close to doom.
