Description

An ongoing string of high-profile and very public murder-suicides has San Francisco even more rattled than a string of recent earthquakes: A flamboyant fashion designer burns to death, clutching the body of his murdered lover. A superstar 49er jumps off the Golden Gate Bridge. And most shocking of all, a U.S. attorney launches her BMW off a highway overpass, killing herself and three others. Enter forensic psychiatrist Jo Beckett, hired by the SFPD to cut open not the victim's body, but the victim's life. Jo's job is to complete the psychological autopsy, shedding light on the circumstances of any equivocal death. Soon she makes a shocking discovery: All the suicides belonged to something called the Dirty Secrets Club, a group of A-listers with nothing but money and plenty to hide. As the deaths continue, Jo delves into the disturbing motives behind this shadowy group - until she receives a letter that contains a dark secret Jo thought she'd left deep in her past, a secret that ends with the most chilling words of all: "Welcome to the Dirty Secrets Club."

Professional reviews

"Here's a new twist on the investigation of a homicide. Forensic psychiatrist Jo Beckett is called upon to solve a series of double deaths, each a murder and a suicide. Beckett conducts psychological autopsies instead of cutting up bodies. She solves crimes by putting together the pieces of the victims' lives. The more she comes to understand about a victim, the more she's able to get to the bottom of his or her death. Susan Ericksen gives Beckett a sometimes vibrant, sometimes self-deprecating personality. Ericksen performs Beckett as a confident investigator whose examinations of her own behavior reveal less self-esteem. Ericksen's male characters are credible but a bit overacted in terms of gender.
