Michael feels compelled to help Laura cover up the crime. Thus begins a game of cat and mouse with the police, in a house where everyone had reason to hate the victim. Michael soon begins to suspect that Laura might be covering for someone else. Any one of the people in the house could have committed the murder, but whodunit? Find out in this thrilling murder mystery by the queen of crime.
