Publisher's Summary

Charlie didn’t want to take this case - he hated cases involving crazy wills - but when one of the new clients mentioned that the Bainbridge men are cursed, he knew resistance was hopeless: Constance could not resist confronting a curse.

In a quiet college town in New Jersey, five million dollars in cashier’s checks lies hidden in a dead man’s house, and whoever finds the checks gets to keep it all. Four family members have four weeks before the house and its contents become the property of a small college. Soon two deaths by drowning from the past and another clear case of murder in the present complicate matters. It takes the combined skills of a superbly trained homicide detective, Charlie, and an equally well trained psychologist, Constance, to unravel the mystery of the Bainbridge curse - and expose a killer.

Kate Wilhelm is the best-selling author of dozens of novels and short-story collections. Among her novels are the popular courtroom thrillers featuring attorney Barbara Holloway. Her other works include the science fiction classic Where Late the Sweet Birds Sang. Born in Ohio, she now lives in Eugene, Oregon.

Critic Reviews

"One of the masters of psychological fiction in America." (San Francisco Chronicle)
"Unlike most writers of legal thrillers, Wilhelm cares as much about her characters as she does about her courtrooms - which is why her books are such genuine pleasures." (Chicago Tribune)

Solid Constance and Charlie outing

I love Kate Wilhelm so Constance and Charlie get a high score even though they lack the temerity of Wilhelm's best creation, Barbara Holloway. So I recommend the Barbara Holloway books and read the Constance and Charlie series for when you are pining for more.
