C.J. Carpenter - Hidden Vices

Desperate to escape Manhattan after her last case and her parents’ deaths, NYPD Detective Megan McGinn takes an open-ended leave of absence from the job she once loved. Arriving at a rented home in a quiet lakeside town, Megan stays away from the investigation into a local judge’s death . . . until his estranged daughter is arrested for murder.

The hostile behavior of the police detectives prompts Megan to look deeper into the details of the case. She finds that the wealthy judge had as many skeletons in his closet as he had assets, and his monetary influence ran deep into the community’s pockets. Whatever the picturesque town is hiding, there are residents who will resort to anything to keep Megan from exposing their secrets.
