A House in Disarray

368 pages3 hours


When the New York City Police Commissioner is compromised by the death of a city councilman, he appoints Detective Emma Rules to investigate, hoping to circumvent a public witch hunt. But what she uncovers implicates her boss. If she solves the crime, she could put the commissioner in jail, embarrass the city and make the entire police force the laughingstock of the country. Yet, if she doesn't, it'll make the city and the police look corrupt, and mark her as ineffective and suspicious.

On top of that, her brother's wife and daughter seek her assistance, creating family frictions and throwing her life into turmoil when she has little time to deal with it. And after years of protecting herself emotionally, she's drawn into an unanticipated romance, which threatens to change her life as much as the case itself. Between these whirlwind events, she's buffeted by social and professional events, as the biggest case of her career threatens to unravel it.
