Summary
"Two weeks before Christmas, Diana Duprey, an outspoken abortion doctor, is found dead in her swimming pool. A national figure, Diana inspired passion and ignited tempers, but never more so than the day of her death. Her husband Frank, a longtime attorney in the DA's office; her daughter Megan, a freshman in college; the Reverend Stephen O'Connell, founder of the town's pro-life coalition: all of them quarreled with Diana that day and each one has something to lose in revealing the truth. Meanwhile the detective on the case struggles for the answers -- and finds himself more intimately involved than he ever could have imagined."--Publisher's website
Summary
Two weeks before Christmas, Dr. Diana Duprey is found floating face-up in a small lap pool in her back yard. A medical doctor with an abortion practice, and national figure who inspired passion and ignited tempers, she had been the target of violent threats by right-to-life activists. The investigation of the case unleashes a flood of secrets within Duprey's own family and among the residents of her small Colorado town, all of whom must face haunting questions--and the accusations of their own conscience
