Summary
Jackson Workman "Work" Pickens, a criminal defense attorney in a class-conscious southern town, has come to hate his profession and his life, with the burdens of a bad marriage, psychologically damaged sister, and missing father weighing him down, but he is shocked out of his inertia when his father's corpse is found and Work becomes the prime suspect in the murder
Summary
When Work Pickens finds his father murdered, the investigation pushes a repressed family history to the surface and he sees his own carefully constructed faȧde begin to crack. Work's troubled sister, her combative girlfriend, his gold digging socialite wife, and an unrequited lifelong love join a cast of small town characters that create no shortage of drama in this extraordinary, fast-paced suspense novel
