In British author Cooper's suspenseful seventh Trish Maguire mystery (after 2004's Keep Me Alive ), the London barrister agrees to take on a libel case concerning a politician newly raised to the House of Lords who's been named as the instigator of a bombing that killed a busload of children 30 years earlier. When Trish asks her friend Insp. Caro Lyalt for help, she learns that Caro is in need of her aid as well. An informant has told Caro that a candidate for a job for which she's also vying has organized crime connections. The murder of Caro's informant catapults Trish deeper into Caro's case and Trish's 11-year-old half-brother, David, into danger. Putting at risk her seven-year relationship with boyfriend George Henton, a prominent solicitor, the smart, caring and driven Trish delves for information and puts together all the pieces for a satisfying conclusion. Agent, Jane Gregory (U.K.) . (Sept.)
