She Was Young...Beautiful...and DEAD!

Jake Danser has it all: a beautiful wife, a house in the California hills, a high-profile job as a forensic psychologist.  But he’s also got a mistress.  And when she's found strangled to death with his necktie, the police show up at his door.  Now it’s up to Jake to prove he didn’t do it.  But how can he, when all the evidence says he did? 

As Jake's life crumbles around him, he races to find proof of his innocence.  And with every step, the noose is tightening...

Winner of an Edgar Award! From the author of The Last Days of Il Duce and Manifesto for the Dead, The Confession is a new noir masterpiece in the chilling tradition of Cornell Woolrich and Patricia Highsmith.
