Join Mystery Guild for a great deal on AT RISK
Anyone who’s read Patricia Cornwell’s novels knows why she’s considered America’s #1 crime writer: her plots, chillingly authentic; her characters—especially Kay Scarpetta—complex and believable. Cornwell is once again at the top of her game with At Risk, her electrifying new thriller that was serialized in The New York Times Magazine.
District Attorney Monique Lamont has been charged with the task of publicizing “At Risk,” Governor Miles Crawley’s new crime initiative designed to solve “Any Crime, Any Time.” But for Monique, this is more than just an opportunity to showcase Massachusetts’ cutting-edge DNA program; it’s her chance to unseat Crawley in the next election.
Twenty years before, a wealthy widow was bludgeoned to death in her home during what was assumed to be a botched robbery. Monique is convinced that solving this mystery will boost her campaign. And who better to head this high-profile search than her drop-dead gorgeous state investigator Winston Garano? Win wants nothing to do with his boss’s blatant publicity stunt. Nevertheless, he’s forced to get involved when he receives death threats after Monique is brutally attacked. Now, if Win doesn’t figure out what their would-be killer wants, this cold case could be closed…for good.
