Join Doubleday Book Club for a great deal on THE FRONT
Patricia Cornwell's At Risk earned rave reviews and introduced readers to two irresistible characters: Win Garano, a hotshot Massachusetts state investigator with a not-inconsiderable chip on his shoulder, and District Attorney Monique Lamont, an aggressive woman who isn't above using her sexual allure to further her powerful ambitions. Now Cornwell brings them back to thrust and parry in a new page-turner that once begun is impossible to put down.
It never fails to irk Win Garano that, invariably, Monique Lamont's agenda is as long as her always-on-display legs. This time, to garner the attention she craves, the hard-charging district attorney has Win thawing out an ice-cold case she believes will resurrect the Boston Strangler. The problem for Win is that the murder took place over forty years ago in Watertown, the current home of the Front, a group of cops known for doing things their way. But when Win locks horns with their leader, an embittered beauty who has nothing good to say about Monique, he suspects this long-buried murder could unearth other shocking revelations. And it has Win wondering: Exactly what is going on behind the Front?
