In the series that's "a sure thing for anyone who has enjoyed Parker's Spenser novels" (Library Journal), reporter Jack McMorrow investigates the murder of a woman with ties to a very wealthy and prominent Boston family-who might have buried their dirty secrets with the victim.

In his eighth action-packed mystery, journalist Jack McMorrow investigates the murder of a woman with mysterious ties to a wealthy and powerful Boston family, who may have some dark and dangerous secrets that they will do anything to hide.

Jack McMorrow is a stringer for the New York Times. His lover is social service worker Roxanne Masterson. It's her newest case that's grabbed Jack's attention. The daughter of an obscenely wealthy couple - nouveau members of the Blue Harbor set - is the alleged victim of physical abuse. For Roxanne, it's a matter of finding safe haven for the young girl. For Jack, it's just the kind of story that the public loves: watching the rich and powerful suffer an inglorious fall from grace. But local celebrities like David and Maddie Connelly, already well accustomed to jealous gossip and rumors, are going to need more than power and money to bury this scandal.
However, once behind the walls of the Connelly home, Jack and Roxanne find a couple genuinely concerned - yet genuinely guarded. All Jack can gather for certain is that they've sent their daughter to stay with relatives, and sent their mysterious au pair packing. Far more forthcoming is Angel Moretti, assistant to David Connelly's financial advisor - young and pretty enough to sink her hooks into any rich man...deep enough to hurt. She's got an angle no one else has. But her secrets have been buried - along with her body, just discovered in a shallow grave in an isolated patch of woods. Now, Jack's story is on its way to becoming a front-page headline - and it will lead Jack and Roxanne to places far darker than Angel's grave.
