But things between them go terribly wrong when Kari’s old lover is found murdered with a letter from her in his pocket. The evidence against Kari is damning.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
Author Harlow Coban was born in Kansas City, MO, but grew up in Denver, CO. She relocated to North Carolina five years ago with her husband, two dogs, and 16-year old twins.
She shares a birthday with the notorious Napoleon Bonaparte. In keeping with his legacy, she is currently working on taking over the world. Harlow’s positive attitude and fresh take on life are her tools and conquest is certain.
She spends her free time writing, dancing, traveling and defending mailboxes from her 16-year-old twins’ driving.
Her debut novel, LIFE IN DEATH (February 2012), is a murder mystery which pulls from real-life situations from her own family history. She felt compelled to share her story with the world while offering a thrilling, entertaining, and amusing escape for readers.
In keeping with her commitment to improving the lives of children, a portion of the proceeds from the sale of her book will be donated to the Boys and Girls Club in her home state of North Carolina.
This is a really fast read… it was over before I knew it! The plot is sick and twisted and the characters too! Coban does an interesting job of creating a twisted storyline that keeps you guessing and wondering what just happened. Throughout the book there were several questions about the characters that I had to re-read and make sure that I had the characters straight. Even with the questions I would read the next installment to see where Kari’s life leads! I would recommend this to others who enjoy a good twisted mystery.
