This was one of my least favorite Patterson novels. There is nothing wrong with it except that I didn't care about any of the characters. Most of the story is told from Maggie's point of view. As a young wife she killed her abusive husband to protect her child. She goes on to a fabulous song-writing and singing career. But the story is told in flashbacks from her sitting in jail awaiting trial for killing her current husband after she is already a success. She comes off snarky and smug instead of frightened about the outcome of her trial. The ending was so predictable. Not up to Patterson's usual writing.
