Real estate agent Kate Doyle knew divorce was messy
especially when mixed with business, but she didn't expect
it to be bloody. Kate agrees to sell the home of old
friends who're locked in bitter wrangling and manages to
keep the peace long enough to get signatures on contacts.
She congratulates herself on what will be an easy sale in
this upscale Colorado college town. However, Kate's
celebration turns to horror when she walks into the lawyer-
client's study to find him brutally murderedâ€”stabbed in the
"A crime of passion," say Kate's police detective brother-
in-law. The prime suspect is Kate's close friend, the
spurned wife, who begs Kate to help her.
Kate's meddling turns up some surprising suspects. The
successful lawyer deceived numerous ex-lovers as well as
his wife. He'd also played off one land developer against
another, dangling a choice tract of land as bait.
Businesses were ruined and fortunes lost. Had the loser
taken revenge on the wily lawyer? Or had an ex-lover killed
in jealous rage?
Kate's real estate license helps her dig into the clever
lawyer's dealings as she sifts clues from cyber space to
crawl space. Unfortunately, her snooping tempts the killer
to exercise his own licenseâ€”to kill.
