Back cover copy

For journalist John Kelly, the violent death of local celebrity and rock superstar Scott Silver promises to be the best story he's seen since his days on Fleet Street. With a little work he may even turn it into the second chance he's been looking for all these years.
            DCI Karen Meadows isn't so sure her old friend Kelly is seeing clearly. The prime suspect lies dead next to Silver, and his alluring widow, Angel, claims she killed the intruder in self-defense. Wherever the truth lies, Karen knows the hordes of tabloid press, not to mention her own bosses, have their own distinct agenda.
            Kelly can't let the story lie and, digging deeper, he unveils an intense and complex tale of intrigue and deception. For him, it all centers on Angel Silver, the volatile but stunningly attractive woman who is prepared to confide only in him. But as Kelly falls deeper and deeper under her hypnotic spell, the question soon becomes just what price she'll demand for the exclusive access she has granted the reporter. And will Kelly be able to resist Angel's relentless seduction, both personal and professional, and get a handle on his priorities before further violent events unfold?

Review quote

Praise for Hilary Bonner and "When the Dead Cry Out" "Pick up Hilary Bonner at your peril---you won't be able to put her down. Bonner's taut, compelling tales have more twists and turns than an English country lane. She'll drive you to distraction."---Val McDermid, author of "The Torment of Others" "Bonner works outside conventional mystery or police procedural mode, keeping readers guessing."---"Kirkus Reviews" "Hilary Bonner's secret is that as a top journalist she's been there, seen it close up and asked the crucial questions. She plots with pace, passion, and that marvelous ability to keep you turning the pages long after you meant to put out the light."---Peter Lovesey, author of "The Circle" "A fascinating tale of believable people, in the hands of an absolutely ace storyteller; I read it in one sitting, with enormous pleasure."---Lindsey Davis, author of "Scandal Takes a Holiday"
