"Ex-FBI agent Brigid Quinn, now happily settled in Tucson, doesn't visit her family in Florida much. But her former partner on the force, Laura Coleman--a woman whose life she has saved and who has saved her life in turn--is living there now. So when Laura calls about a case that is not going well, Brigid doesn't hesitate to get on a plane. On leave from the Bureau, Laura has been volunteering for a legal group trying to prove the innocence of a man who is on death row for killing his family. Laura is firmly convinced that he didn't do it, while Brigid isn't so sure--but the date for his execution is coming up so quickly that they'll have to act fast to find any evidence that may absolve him before it's too late...Edgar Award and CWA Gold Dagger finalist Becky Masterman's third Brigid Quinn novel is the masterful follow-up to Fear the Darkness and Rage Against the Dying.

This was a read for a Mystery Book group - and everyone seemed to enjoy it. The detective is a different voice then we usually hear from and the book is a quick read. I thought the dual story lines were interesting and made the book very realistic. I will try another installment before making a decision to continue with the series or not.

So glad we have this local author. I can't wait for the next Quinn book. Love her stories. Easy to read, though tough stuff in spots, Becky gets it right.

This book is an average to sub average effort, that I found to be engaging at times but never compelling. The writing style is a bit lazy, certainly never too descriptive and the two story lines failed to propel, or, accentuate the story, nor my enjoyment.

The dual plot lines (ailing father, and death-row execution mystery) do not weave together as elegantly or with the complementarity that one might hope, but Masterman is still a master storyteller and Brigid Quinn a refreshing presence in the genre.

Loved the original Brigid Quinn novel... this one was quite disappointing. It lacked in many things, maybe especially the original southwest setting... also 'family angst' is available in too many books- this story did not benefit from the ailing father at all!

After 65 pages gave up--too wordy. Couldn't figure out what all the fuss is about this book.
