Two months after the suspicious and much-publicized death of his father on the island of Martha's Vineyard, it is taking all of Adam Blaine's will to suture the deep wounds the tragedy has inflicted upon his family and himself. - - As the court inquest into Benjamin Blaine's death casts suspicions on those closest to him, Adam struggles to protect them from those who still suspect that his father was murdered by one of his kin. - - But the sternest test of all is Adam's proximity to Carla Pacelli - his late father's mistress and a woman to whom, despite her pivotal role in his family's plight, Adam finds himself increasingly drawn. The closer he gets to this beautiful, mysterious woman, the further Adam feels from his troubles, yet the closer he also comes to revealing the secrets he's striven to conceal and condemning the people he's fought so hard to protect. - - An acknowledged master of the courtroom thriller, Patterson's 'Blaine' trilogy, a bold and surprising departure from his past novels, is a complex family drama pulsing with the tumult of the time and ''dripping with summer diversions, youthful passion and ideals, class tensions, and familial disruptions'' (Library Journal).« less
