Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Nancy Taylor Rosenberg has constantly been praised for her intense, dramatic suspense, breathing real life and trouble into her action-packed thrillers. Her fourteen years in law enforcement have always given her novels great authenticity, often pulling inspiration from the very cases she has worked. Now comes The Cheater.

Returning to her most beloved character, Lily Forrester, from the New York Times bestsellers Mitigating Circumstances and Buried Evidence, Rosenberg proves once again that she is a master of the suspense thriller, as Forrester finds herself in yet another mix of bizarre circumstances that lead her onto the trail of a vicious criminal mind. Along the way we meet:

FBI Agent Mary Stevens—She is tracking a killer who murders husbands who are cheating on their wives, their mutilated bodies disposed of in ghastly ways and strange locations.
 
Bryce Forrester—Lilys husband—calls her from a Las Vegas jail where hes been arrested for attempted rape…even though Las Vegas was not on his itinerary.
 
Anne Bradley—Bryces accuser, like Lily, is a woman with an eerie past…an enigmatic figure to whom Lily is strangely drawn.

The trail leads back to a Web service that provides alibis for cheating spouses and into a thick web of deception that puts both Lilys and Marys lives in jeopardy. Do you know where your husband is?

Review:

"Lily Forrester, the edgy California crusader for justice who got away with killing the criminal she thought raped her daughter in Mitigating Circumstances (1993) and whose daughter took care of the real rapist in Buried Evidence (2000), tangles with a female serial killer in this unsettling thriller from bestseller Rosenberg. Now a Ventura County judge, Lily becomes friends with lawyer Anne Bradley, an attractive single woman new in town. Lily, whose marriage to her second husband, Bryce Donnelly, has been showing signs of strain, has no idea Bryce is a philanderer and a potential victim of Anne's Alibi Connection, a referral club that helps Anne find and kill adulterers. Mary Stevens, the likable FBI profiler who gets on the trail of unsolved homicides leading to the mysterious Anne, provides relief from the angst-ridden Lily and the book's villain, a man-hating sociopath whose portrait Rosenberg at times sketches with too heavy a hand. (June)" Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)
