Edgar-nominated and bestselling author Lisa Turner's hard-boiled Detective Billy Able returns in this dark Southern mystery about the murder of a dazzling Memphis socialite—and the scandals revealed in the wake of her death
The heart can be an assassin. Detective Billy Able knows that from experience.
Fresh from solving Memphis' most sensational murder case, Homicide Detective Billy Able and his ambitious new partner Frankie Malone are called to a bizarre crime scene on the outskirts of town. A high society attorney has been murdered while dressed in a wedding gown. Billy is shocked to discover he has a very personal connection to the victim. When the attorney's death exposes illegal practices at her family's prestigious law firm, the scandal is enough to rock the southern city's social world.
In a tale of the remnants of Old South aristocracy and entitlement, twisted by greed and vengeance, Billy must confront the secrets of his own past to have any chance at solving the murder of the girl he once knew. But as he seeks the truth, he's drawn closer to an embittered killer bent on revenge—and eliminating the threat Billy poses.

"Joel Richards falls short in his spirited narration of this installment in the popular Billy Able series. He delivers a clear presentation, he uses pace and pitch to convey drama and keep the text moving, and his conversational tone for the main character pulls the listener into the action. But his attempts at accents and voices for differentiation are insufficient, given the large cast filled with Southern stereotypes. Listeners will also be challenged by a plot featuring convoluted relationships and incidents into which the author tries to weave an ambitious array of social and cultural topics. Lisa Turner's fans, and mystery fans in general, may have a better experience with the print version. M.O.B. © AudioFile 2016, Portland, Maine"
