Madge's husband and daughter share secrets that exclude her. Exempt from the family mystery, she is an outcast, ignored, and treated as nothing more than a household item, a part of the furniture, and a houseplant thirsty for water.
Madge Kiley's daughter is on trial for killing her rapist in self-defense. Madge's husband is a United States senator. The daughter's truth will destroy the senator's career and send the daughter to prison. Her lawyer abandons her trial.
The daughter's new attorney asks Investigator Mitchell Pappas to help with a case filled with obsessive love and hate that surge the plot to its unexpected conclusion.
"Once again, Leodas takes you on a thrilling ride. I could not put this book down. A must-read for everyone!"
"An excellent written mystery that grabs a reader's interest with twists and surprises that are enhanced with intrigue and murder most foul. Justice is served in the end as the loop has no running knot to form a noose, thus a loophole. If you like mysteries, you will enjoy this latest book by Gus Leodas."
