There are some people who do jobs that put them in harm’s way. Diana Thompson is one such person. Diana runs The Centre for Reproductive Choices in Colorado. In short, she performs abortions. There is no shortage of opponents but there’s no way of knowing which of them would resort to violence.
Diana’s husband comes home to find her dead, floating in their lap pool. There is a suspicious bruise on the back of her head that isn’t explained by slipping. Frank is the local district attorney and their marriage isn’t a particularly happy one. Their teenage daughter, Megan is having problems with her former boyfriend who is obsessed with her and won’t leave her alone. He is also a suspect.
The detectives assigned to investigate Diana’s murder have butted heads with Frank in the past. They have to be careful not to lay themselves open to claims of bias.
