About this Book:

Family secrets will get out... And the ramifications get gruesome in Pretty Dead, the seventh Jack McMorrow Mystery. In this widely acclaimed addition to the popular series, veteran reporter Jack McMorrow and his partner Roxanne are sent to investigate the alleged physical abuse of a young daughter of a Boston blue blood family. The trappings of elite society threaten to sidetrack Jack’s investigation of the family’s misdoings, until a beautiful woman is found dead and the carefully constructed image of the family’s wealth and power begins to fray. Loyalties are tested and bonds are broken as Jack struggles with one of his most potent adversaries yet: his own ambition.
