It started with a haunting image: a Ford Explorer, iridiscent in the moonlight and alone on a desolate stretch of beach. Its owner, Melissa Gibbons, has gone missing. Her husband says she flew the coop. But Los Angeles Deputy DA Rachel Knight is convinced otherwise: Melissa Gibbons has been murdered.
So begins the confounding case that Rachel must present before a disbelieving jury. A dissatisfied heiress and her philandering husband - what really happened? The husband has a fiendishly convincing case that Melissa faked her own death and fled. But with the support of her trusty sidekick, Detective Bailey Keller, Rachel pieces together a much more sinister truth.
In this short, standalone Rachel Knight thriller, listeners follow our savvy and riotiously entertaining heroine through the surprising world of LA crime.

Nearly everybody who has ever read a legal mystery knows this book's ending by rote memory. I will give you a hint....murder trial with no body....and the defense attorney turns to the back of the room and says...I am sure you can finish the scene. I didnt expect an award winning novel for a couple bucks but I did expect an original storyShame on the author for this one.
