In this new Jim West novel, West comes to the rescue of an old friend suspected of killing his own wife. West rolls up his sleeves and begins to dig deep—perhaps too deeply—as someone begins to follow and target him.
It’s not long before West discovers that he didn’t know his friend’s wife as well as he thought. Everyone but West and his friend knew that she had had many affairs. Any of her lovers could have had a motive to kill her.
As he investigates one lover after the other, West ignites an outbreak of more deaths and mayhem. The killer wants him dead. His friend’s lawyer wants him to go back home, and the police threaten to arrest him.
Feeling the pressure to solve the murder quickly, West sets a trap for the killer—using himself as bait. However, he soon learns he may have only outsmarted himself.
