Dead Wrong by Bathsheba Monk

Boston society divorce lawyer Swanson Herbinko knows better than to mix business with pleasure, but what if this particular pleasure is Hidalgo, a man who knows his way about her BMW as well as he knows his way around her body? And what if the business is finding out who murdered Carlton Stubbs, a Trump-like developer whose wife, Matilda, Swanson is representing in their pending divorce?

Dozens of people would love to see Carlton dead including his nurse-Hidalgo's sister Ines-and especially his nearest and dearest relatives all of whom are tapped out financially: art forger son Tucker and his dominatrix girlfriend Ulrike; daughter Sarah and her 6 foot tall army drill sergeant girlfriend LePage; not to mention his twin brother Stone who controlled Carlton's inheritance for years and now is forced to give it up...until it mysteriously vanishes.

Swanson dives into the stormy waters of Beacon Hill society-becoming a target herself as her sources turn up dead-to solve the murder with the help of her fierce dachshund Devil Dog. The only question that remains is whether Swanson will wind up just like her sources... DEAD. Paperback original, $17.99
