Jake and Katie had dated in high school but drifted apart. This is fiction, so naturally Katie's husband, Roger, is found guilty of the murder of Jake's wife and later dies while incarcerated. The predictions point to the probability of Roger's innocence.
Rosenfelt has a way of making us believe in the preposterous and feel smart while doing it. There isn't much humor in this book (he saves that for his wonderful Andy Carpenter series), but there is a bit of lightness even as we go through the tragedies.
I won't give away any more of the plot but will definitely recommend the book as one of my favorites this month. Like that old loafer I keep wearing, David Rosenfelt is the author I want in reaching distance when I am ready to settle down and be comfortable.
