In her second outing, after Short Squeeze, Hamptons defense attorney Jackie Swaitkowski is the only one to witness Eugenie Birkson's air taxi take a fatal plunge to the ground—and to see Eugenie toss out a camera case in her final moments. But when Jackie finally gets her hands on the camera card inside, she finds faces she knows from her own family, and realizes that untangling Eugenie's past means digging into her own.
"The excellent supporting cast—Sam Acquillo, the star of the author's first four Hamptons mysteries; Jackie's boyfriend, Harry Goodlander; Southampton cop Joe Sullivan; computer guru Randall Dodge—provide valuable assistance when Jackie's efforts stir up threats. Domestic problems and Homeland Security issues enliven a plot with slick twists that should keep readers switching their bets to the very end."—Publishers Weekly
