"A crime novel that transcends the genre--a twisting, high-stakes story with characters so real and so recognizably human, that it breaks your heart a little. Brilliant."
-Shari Lapena, author of the New York Times bestseller The Couple Next Door
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...
A Twist of the Knife, 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.
