Margaret Coel returns to Los Alamos to sign her new thriller, “The Perfect Suspect,” at 6 p.m. Sept. 26 at Otowi Station Bookstore.
Catherine McLeod is back! When David Mathews, candidate for Colorado governor, is found murdered in his mansion, all signs point to his wife, Sydney, the perfect suspect. But McLeod has been covering the candidate’s campaign and she has stumbled across rumors that suggest Mathews is not the charismatic man he seems to be and that he has been living a double life. Then an anonymous caller tells McLeod that she saw the killer leave the mansion after she had heard three shots fired.
McLeod thinks it was probably a crank call, but something about the desperation and terror in the voice convinces her that the woman is telling the truth.
The plot moves from Denver’s wealthy, privileged enclaves to the city’s gritty, crime-ridden ghettos as McLeod races a hardened and sophisticated murderer to find the only witness who can bring the killer to justice.
As the hunt goes on, McLeod realizes that the killer is hunting her and before she can save the witness, she must first save herself.
“The Perfect Suspect” is a tale rife with deception. Mathews was not the perfect man or candidate, covering up his willingness to take what he wants: money, women and power.
