Book 2, A Mia Quinn Mystery

This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.


“Wiehl’s experience as a former federal prosecutor gives the narrative an authenticity in its depiction of the criminal justice system. Henry’s expertise in writing mysteries and thrillers has placed her on the short-list for the Agatha, Anthony, and Oregon Book awards. The coauthors’ . . . fast-paced detective series will keep legal thriller readers and John Grisham fans totally engrossed.” —Library Journal

A prosecutor of violent criminals. A detective on a dangerous beat. When these two pros take on an off-the-books case, the line between professional and personal becomes perilously blurred. 

When a twenty-two-year-old convict walks into the courtroom, his eyes confirm what Mia Quinn already guesses: he blames her for his conviction. In seconds, he knocks her to the ground and holds a razor blade to her throat. While she manages to escape without injury, it's just one more reminder that Mia's job prosecuting Seattle's s most dangerous criminals is far from low risk.

As a single mom, the last thing Mia wants is for her work to follow her home or discover that it already has.

Now Detective Charlie Carlson is suggesting the very thing Mia doesn't want to believe—that her accountant husband’s deadly car accident was no accident at all. When Mia and Charlie encounter resistance to reopening the case, they take the investigation into their own hands. And they find much more than they bargained for.

Was Mia's husband more than an accountant . . . and less than an honest man? As the truth becomes more shocking and the case grows more complex, her husband's killers take note of Mia . . . and her children. How far will this prosecutor go to learn the truth about her husband—and how far will she have to go to protect her family?

From Publishers Weekly

Apr 21, 2014 – In Wiehl and Henry's uneven second Mia Quinn mystery (after 2013's A Matter of Trust), Mia, a prosecutor in Seattle's King County Violent Crimes Unit, must decide whether three 15-year-old boys, whose thoughtless actions resulted in severe injury to a young mother, should be charged as juveniles or adults. Meanwhile, Mia and her children 14-year-old Gabe and three-year-old Brooke are still adjusting to the loss of her accountant husband, Scott. His death in a car accident seven months earlier wasn't an accident, according to Det. Charlie Carlson. Mia's efforts to discover Scott's secrets attract the attentions of an enforcer named Vin. The suspense rises as Mia and Charlie close in on a killer, but the mix of mystery, romance (Mia attracts both Charlie and DA Eli Hall), and social issues never quite gels.
