While the city’s chief medical examiner, Claire Washburn, harbours theories that run counter to the police investigation of the Burke case, Assistant District Attorney Yuki Castellano sizes up Lucas as a textbook domestic offender – until he puts forward a theory of his own that could connect the dots on a constellation of killings.
As the case grows into something far bigger than any of them could have imagined, the four friends will need each other to help unpick the truth from a web of lies. INCLUDES AN EXTRACT FROM THE PRESIDENT’S DAUGHTER, BY BILL CLINTON AND JAMES PATTERSON – AVAILABLE NOW TO PRE-ORDER
