In Michael Nava´s final Henry Rios mystery, the gay Latino lawyer faces his most daunting personal and professional challenges as he comes to terms with his past - and a cache of family secrets. Henry Rios was dead for fifty-seven seconds when he suffered a heart attack in the courtroom. While he recovers, his sister, Elena, stays with him at the hospital, and they begin to repair their strained relationship, finally airing their thoughts and regrets about their childhood in an abusive home. But Elena has an extra surprise for Rios: Thirty years ago, when she was in college, she had a baby and gave her up for adoption. The girl, Vicky, grew up in foster homes, but now seeks out Elena for help escaping an abusive husband. Despite Elena and Rios´ efforts, Vicky returns to her husband - but not long after, he´s shot dead in a motel room and Vicky claims to have blown him away. Rios doesn´t believe her confession, though, and finds evidence that suggests she´s innocent. Rios´ search for the facts leads him into a thicket of secrets and lies. As he fights for a niece he never knew he had, he must also combat the ever-present shadow of his own mortality and the truth about his past. A possible judgeship and the beginning of a new love give him hope for the future in this stellar conclusion to the acclaimed Henry Rios series, about love, loss, and the enduring power of family.

During the height of a particularly brutal Vermont winter, a woman´s body is found one morning hanging high above the interstate. The woman, found with the word dyke carved on her chest, is quickly determined to be the victim of a brutal murder. That alone is enough to bring in Joe Gunther and his Vermont Bureau of Investigation team. But when the victim is identified not only as a state senator but as an intimate friend of the governor´s, it unleashes a publicity maelstrom that makes a difficult investigation even more challenging. While the antilesbian message is an obvious feint meant to mislead investigators, it does reveal that the governor is gay and forces her to publicly acknowledge that fact. In the meantime, while the publicity rages on to even greater heights, the police begin to focus intensely on the dead senator´s life. One thing they uncover is that she had a fondness for recreational marijuana. In Vermont, however, neither lesbianism nor marijuana use justifies murder. It´s up to Gunther and his team to find out not just who but why? 1. Language: English. Narrator: Tom Taylorson. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/blak/008126/bk_blak_008126_sample.mp3.
