Suspicion of MaliceBook - 2000
The critics call Barbara Parker's work "top-drawer suspense" (The New York Times Book Review) and proclaim her to be "one of the genre's most accomplished performers" (The San Diego Union-Tribune). Now, in her most intense, unforgettable novel to date, Parker reunites Gail Connor and Anthony Quintana for a shocking case that exposes the underbelly of sleek Miami--a case that could bring them closer together, or destroy everything they hold dear.A brutal murder takes place in the shadows of an exclusive party on the Miami waterfront. The victim is the heir to a yacht-building family fortune. Bobby Gonzales, a talented dancer with the Miami Ballet, is the prime suspect, as well as Gail Connor's newest client. Gonzales has an alibi, but it involves a respected Miami judge with whom he was smoking marijuana at the time of the murder. The judge is represented by Anthony Quintana, Gail's ex-fiance Gail must join forces with Anthony--the man she'd vowed never to lay eyes on again--to find the killer and clear both their clients. Thrust back together with Quintana, Gail must decide if she should reveal a shocking secret . . . something she should have confessed months ago that will change both of their lives forever.
