Meet the Author Tonight!

The Perfect Suspect
Catherine McLeod is back! When David Mathews, candidate for Colorado governor, is found murdered in his mansion, all signs point to his wife, Sydney, the perfect suspect. But Catherine has been covering the candidate's campaign and she has stumbled across rumors that suggest David Mathews is not the charismatic man he seems to be and that he has been living a double life. Then an anonymous caller tells Catherine that she saw the killer leave the mansion after she had heard three shots fired. The killer is none other than Detective Ryan Beckman, on the fast-track with the Denver police department and above suspicion. Detective Beckman is in charge of the investigation into the murder.

Catherine realizes it was probably a crank call, something about the desperation and terror in the voice convinces her the woman is telling the truth. The plot moves from Denver's wealthy, privileged enclaves to the the city's gritty, crime-ridden ghettos as Catherine races a hardened and sophisticated murderer to find the only witness who can bring the killer to justice, certain that if Detective Beckman, with the resources of the police department, wins the race, the caller will be dead. As the hunt goes on, Catherine realizes that the killer is hunting her, and before she can save the witness, she must first save herself.
