Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Readers of Phillip Margolin's masterful legal thrillers know they are in for suspense at its finest, with plenty of twists and turns, and most of all, a keen sense of the inner workings of the American justice system. At the center of The Undertaker's Widow is the beleaguered figure of Richard Quinn--a judge so ethical that he is willing to risk his own life to see that justice prevails in his courtroom. But as Quinn discovers when he presides over the trial of tough-talking state congresswoman Jane Crease, there is not always a clear path to justice.

A cigar-smoking former police officer, Crease is a flamboyant public figure who stands accused of the brutal murder of her husband, a wealthy mortician. Things, however, are not as they seem, and Quinn soon begins to suspect that Crease may well have been set up. As he zeros in on the shocking secret at the heart of this trail, Judge Richard Quinn finds that his efforts to do the right thing lead him ever deeper into an insidious maze of murder and deceit.

Synopsis:

Judge Richard Quinn is young, idealistic, and honest to a fault. That's why he's handed the most sensational homicide case in Oregon history. Locked in a race for the U.S. Senate, Ellen Crease gunned down the intruder who murdered her wealthy husband. In a single, brutal instant she became a widow, a victim, and a hero. Yet disturbing questions remain. What secrets did the man who started his fortune running mortuaries keep that might have cost him his life? What about the son frozen out of his will? Or his wife's political enemies? And what about Ellen Crease herself? Soon it becomes clear that a deadly plot of murder, blackmail, passion, and double cross is unfolding around Judge Richard Quinn. And unless he breaks the rules, justice will not only be blind, it will be the final victim.
