1st ed.
A riveting new tale of betrayal, blackmail, and murder from the bestselling author ofThe Burning ManandGone, but Not Forgotten. Phillip Margolin's masterful new legal thriller is full of suspense at its finest, with surprising twists and turns, erotic undertones that can quickly turn deadly, and, most of all, a keen sense of the inner workings of the American justice system. At the center ofThe Undertaker's Widowis the beleaguered figure of Richard Quinn--a judge so ethical that he is willing to risk his own life to see that justice prevails in his courtroom.  But as Quinn discovers when he presides over the trial of tough-talking state senator Ellen Crease, there is not always a clear path to justice. A former police officer, Crease is a flamboyant public figure who stands accused of conspiring to murder her husband, a wealthy tycoon who got his start in the funeral parlor business.  Things, however, are not as they seem, and Quinn soon begins to suspect that Crease may well have been set up.  As he zeros in on the deadly secret at the heart of this trial, Judge Richard Quinn finds that his efforts to do the right thing lead him ever deeper into an insidious maze of murder and deceit. With all the narrative pulse and legal sophistication that have made Phillip Margolin a household name,The Undertaker's Widowis a complex and wild ride that will leave readers breathless.
