"The tension in Kathy Herman's newest book builds slowly, then erupts and leaves you wondering clear to the end. One of her best so far--truly a must read."--Miralee Ferrell, award-winning author of Runaway Romance, also a TV movie
Mercy killing--or ruthless murder?
After must agonizing, Liam Berne takes his mother, who suffers from Alzheimer's, to the Sure Foot River, where he coaxes her into the water and drowns her. A mercy killing, he tells himself, to spare her years in a nursing home. And getting his inheritance isn't a bad thing either.
Dixie Berne's body is recovered, and the coroner can't find any sign of foul play, though others aren't convinced. When Liam discovers a child witnessed the drowning, what he's willing to do shocks even him.
But unbeknownst to Liam, someone else suspects him--someone who intends to make him pay.
