Secrets, lies, and revenge. What a deadly combination! When the owner of a local strip club is found with his throat slit, Detective Charlie McClung has only one obvious suspect: his wife’s best friend, Joan. Even though Charlie finds her clutching a bloody knife while standing over the body, he has been around long enough to know that crime scenes aren’t always as they first appear. But as other suspects become victims themselves, Charlie must delve deeper into Joan’s dark and seedy past to prove her innocence.

About the Author

Many, many years ago, in Mercedes, Texas, Dr. Edwards delivered a chubby little baby girl, that would be me. Then five years later, my family, including me, moved to Georgia. After searching for a practically perfect man for seventeen years, I found him. His last name, Edwards. Thirty-five plus years later we are still happily married. My life has been filled with a variety of experiences. Some were great and some, well let's just say I have learned many lessons the hard way. I can thankfully say that I'm a breast cancer survivor.

I am active in Sisters in Crime Atlanta Chapter, and I sit on the advisory board of Rockdale Cares, Inc., a non-profit advocacy group for the developmentally challenged.
