When a murder hits close to home, Frank finds himself in
an unusual position--the prime suspect in the latest
installment of the national bestselling Gaslight Mystery
Sarah and Frank Malloy are enjoying married life and looking
to make their family official by adopting Catherine, the
child whom Sarah rescued and has been raising as her
daughter. The process seems fairly straightforward, but at
the last minute, the newlyweds discover that Parnell Vaughn,
Catherine's legal father, has a claim on the child, and his
grasping fiancĂ©e is demanding a financial settlement to
relinquish parental rights. Even though exchanging money for
a child is illegal, Frank and Sarah's love for Catherine
drives them to comply.
When Frank returns with the money and finds Vaughn beaten to
death, all evidence points to Frank as the culprit. A
not-quite-famous actor with modest means, Vaughn seems an
unlikely candidate for murder, particularly such a violent
crime of passion. But Frank soon uncovers real-life intrigue
as dramatic as any that appears on stage.
Sarah and Frank enlist those closest to them to help hunt
for Vaughn's killer as Frank's own life--and the future of
their family--hang in the balance.
