Clark again offers an intriguing heroine and an intricately woven mystery. But
the opening murder happens too quickly
to develop a sense of empathy with the victim. The pace picks up with the introduction of heroine, who's immediately likable and, unbeknownst to her, in grave danger.

Assistant prosecutor Emily Wallace lands a career-building case when she's assigned the trial of Gregg Aldrich, accused of murdering his estranged wife, Natalie, a Broadway actress. Natalie's roommate had been murdered years earlier, when both women were beginning their careers.

A chance meeting causes Natalie to realize the identity of her friend's killer, but she's silenced before she reveals him. Suspicion immediately falls on Gregg. Emily suspects that Gregg is innocent. Can she prove it without endangering herself? (SIMON AND SCHUSTER, Apr., 322 pp., $25.95)
