Overview
An ugly duckling as a child, Jodie Bentley had two dreams in life--to be beautiful and rich. She's achieved the first, with some help from a plastic surgeon, and now she's working hard on the second. Her philosophy about money is simple. You can either earn it or marry it. Marrying is easy--it's getting rid of the husband afterwards that takes skill. But hey, practice makes perfect. Detective Superintendent Roy Grace is feeling the pressure from his superiors, his previous case is giving him sleepless nights, there are major developments with his missing wife Sandy, and an old adversary is back. But worse than all of this is, he now believes, a Black Widow is operating in his city--and he may have underestimated just how dangerous this lady is.

James’s immensely satisfying 12th Roy Grace procedural (after 2015’s You Are Dead) finds the Brighton detective superintendent taking a month off to recuperate after being shot in the leg by Dr. Edward Crisp, a suspected serial killer he was trying to arrest. In addition, Grace faces a horrid boss and demoralizing budget cuts to the police force. Fortunately, a convoluted case soon returns Grace to his favorite occupation—solving murders. Psychopathic gold digger Jodie Bentley has been luring one elderly suitor after another into her lethal web. The doggedly determined Grace leads his team in the dual effort to apprehend black widow Jodie and also Crisp, who has so far eluded justice. On the personal side, Grace is the happy husband of pathologist Cleo and the besotted father of an infant son. But then his first wife, who’d been declared dead, turns up, leaving him with a 10-year-old son he never suspected he had. James juggles his multiple story lines with panache as the action hurtles to a shattering conclusion. Agent: Carole Blake, Blake Friedmann Literary (U.K.). (Oct.)
