Secrets, Lies & Homicide is the second book in the Claire Marshall trilogy.
Claire’s construction company has a celebrity client. Tony Burke is a well-known race-car driver, perhaps better known as a playboy. He wants to restore his family house in New Orleans’ Lower Garden District. When Claire talks him into opening his father’s old studio, they find evidence of an old murder. Within a day, there’s a second murder.
Tony insists the two crimes, although years apart, are connected. Unfortunately, the most obvious link puts him on top of the list of suspects. Claire has been seeing a homicide detective, but her sympathies lie more and more with the chief suspect.
Tony asks Claire to help him track down an old land deal that, he thinks, will lead to the killer. Their search uncovers a web of family secrets and old lies. DNA tests and money trails compound the confusion. Everyone has something to hide, and nothing stops the killer from striking again. Love is dangerous. Truth can be fatal.
