Willow is sure Richard Crescent couldn’t commit murder. The police, finding him drenched in his colleague’s blood in the locked Corporate Finance department, are sure he did.
Rushing back from a Tuscan idyll with Chief Inspector Tom Worth to help her friend, Willow uses all her romantic novelist’s imagination, her own experience as a high-powered woman in a man’s world, and her understanding of an uneasy double life, to put herself in the other woman’s shoes and learn why Sarah Allfarthing had to die.
And as well as the high-tension world of merchant banking, conflict with Tom, and personal danger, Willow has to face the terrible possibility that the police could be right . . .
