Description

In the third title in the Suspicion series, Suspicion of Deceit, Gail Connor has recently become engaged to her lover, Anthony Quintana. Disturbing revelations about his past life come to light. As a rebellious and idealistic youth, he traveled to Central America with a different lover and a friend; he ended up with a lifetime of lies to cover up a violent tragedy and a secret at the heart of the Cuban expatriate community that someone considers worth killing for, over and over again, in order to to keep it concealed. Barbara Parker was trained as a lawyer and worked as a prosecutor with the state attorney's office in Dade County, Florida, before moving into a private practice that specialized in real estate and family law. Parker earned a master's degree in creative writing in 1993. Her first legal thriller was Suspicion of Innocence, published in 1994, which was followed by another seven titles in the series featuring her two lawyer protagonists, and sometime lovers Gail Connor and Anthony Quintana. While writing the series, she also produced Criminal Justice, Blood Relations, The Perfect Fake, and The Dark of Day. Suspicion of Innocence was a finalist for the Edgar Award from the Mystery Writers of America. Two of her titles, Suspicion of Deceit and Suspicion of Betrayal were New York Times bestsellers. Barbara Parker died in March 2009, at age sixty-two.show more
