IN THE SHADOW OF EVIL
A beautiful contractor determined to prove her innocence, a handsome detective with a tragic past and a murderous cover-up combine with a message of forgiveness in this unputdownable tale based on real-life building scams.
Winning a national Contractor of the Year award will prove Layla Taylor is the best in her field, but it will also be a fitting memorial to her beloved father. When a colleague is found dead at one of her properties and she’s suspected, her dreams begin to fall apart. Then members of the community with links to properties she worked on come down with the same deadly disease. (B&H, Mar., 320 pp., $14.99)
