RT Rating

If you're in the mood for a deliciously twisty tale, look no further. Connor delivers in spades! This taut thriller pits two highly intelligent women against each other in an exceedingly dangerous chess match. When it comes to forensic thrillers, no one beats Connor.

A black-widow killer who's surprisingly likable traps forensic investigator Diane Fallon in a truly Byzantine web. Diane's lab processed the evidence that led to Clymene O'Riley's conviction for murder. Now, at the request of an FBI profiler, Diane visits Clymene in prison and learns that she's apparently concerned about the safety of one of
her guards.

When Clymene escapes shortly
after the visit, Diane falls under suspicion, which is compounded when she's drugged and discovers massive quantities of blood in her house. Soon Diane becomes a prime suspect in Clymene's murder, but is she really dead? Diane and her team have their doubts and, luckily, they have the expertise to follow the clues down some dark and treacherous alleys.
