Lisa Scottoline provides a view of the depth of a mother and step-mother's love and the extent to which that mother would do in order to protect her family.

Jill's former step-daughter, Abby, appears at her home and informs her that her father, Jill's former husband has been murdered.

As a pedictrician, Abby thinks Jill could use her knowledge to check into the case. The cause of the death was drugs mixed with alcohol leading to a heart attack.

Jill is moved by Abby's sorrow and with Megan, a thirteen-year-old that is Jill and William's daughter, they try to attend William's memorial service. However, his eldest daughter orders Jill to leave and accuses her of abandoning them.

Jill explains to Megan that William was a spend thrift and stole from her, including perscription pads which could have ruined her as a doctor.

Reluctantly, Jill does investigate and comes to certain conclusions. The novel seems to be heading in a certain direction but the author shows her excellent story telling skills with an excellent change of direction.

The concluding section of this novel will have readers sit up and cheer.
