Too Many Suspects: Who Killed A Woman Nobody Liked?
Although Chicago lawyer Quille C. Davis doesn’t handle criminal cases, she often uncovers the truth when the police come up short. So despite the obligations of a demanding law practice, when a desperate teenage girl begs Quille to help exonerate her father, who is in jail for murder, Quille agrees.
Prosecutors say the man poisoned his victim – the girl’s mother. But the girl remains steadfast in her belief in her father’s innocence, and relentless in her search to find the real killer.
No one Quille talks to was fond of the murdered woman: Her older daughter left for college and never looked back, her best friend stopped speaking to her after a big fight, and the woman herself was on the brink of divorce. The only warm feelings the victim had were for her German Shepherd, a rescue dog who frightens friends and strangers alike.
Yet Quille finds it difficult to uncover a motive for murder. There simply are no clear suspects. Except, that is, for the girl’s father, whose trial date looms ever closer.
The more Quille examines the clues, the more she fears the only answer may be the one the girl least wants to hear. Can she discover the truth before it’s too late?
