ABOUT THE BOOK:
Playing with fire can get you burned … or killed.
Chase Effridge, the handsome young playboy/college professor, is dead. A devoted and faithful husband he was not. Professor Effridge led a secret life, where mistresses and enemies were no strangers to him. When his secrets began to surface, his seemingly perfect life took a turn for the worse. One mistress with a baby, and another whose boyfriend found out about their affair, were the equivalent of adding fuel to the fire.
Effridge’s estranged wife, Carlotta Dupree, tops the suspect list, but swears she’s innocent. Her cold demeanor and ill-wishes toward her husband do nothing to help her story. She claims to have an alibi, but can it be verified?
The list of suspects keeps growing as the interrogation process proceeds. Each conversation does little to unravel the complexity of Chase’s life, and provides little clarity as to who can be eliminated and who can’t. Instead, the discussions tend to reveal a new person of interest, and shroud those already on the list with more suspicion. Everyone seems to have a motive.
Will this crime ever be solved?
Mother wouldn’t have given a key to McKenzie, as she didn’t know about her. Larissa definitely had a key when she worked for Mother. She ran errands for her. Personal and professional errands. Jesus, she betrayed my mother even more so than that ass-clown. I think we have everything we need today, Mr. Calhoun. Thank you. We may be in touch if we think of any other questions. Yeah, you do that. Just remember what I told you: as much as I wish I’d been the one, it wasn’t me who took that nitwit’s life.
How would you feel if you found out that your husband was having an affair? What if you found out that your stepfather was sleeping with your girlfriend? What if your overly protective boyfriend found out that you were a little too friendly with his boss’ husband? And if there was a baby involved? Would any of those revelations make you want to kill him? There are too many questions and not enough answers, but Cox has an invigorating and exciting mystery that will leave readers guessing until the very end.
Two officers are called in after several reports are made of a foul smell coming from a neighboring apartment. Upon arrival, the police officers find the body of a professor by the name of Chase Effridge with two gunshot wounds and numerous stab wounds. One witness informs them that there were four people who were in his apartment on the day of his death, all rushing out very quickly. Having a mystery on their hands, they begin investigating everyone who had contact with him in the last week leading up to his death. They soon find that everyone has secrets and a motive for wanting this playboy professor dead. One murder and the suspect pool just seems to get bigger and bigger.
