A San Francisco attorney lands a great new job—and is framed for a gruesome murder—in this mystery by the author of A Radical Departure.
After her boss at their radical law firm is murdered, Willa Jansson is desperate for a new job. But when a conservative corporate firm offers her a position out of the blue, she’s a little hesitant to accept, considering the recommendation comes from a high-profile Republican named Bud Hopper whom Willa’s never heard of. Then she learns her salary will be well over three times what she’s currently earning, and she can hardly say no—even if her hippie parents disapprove.
The elusive Hopper, meanwhile, doesn’t stop pulling strings for Willa, securing her an invite to a swanky weekend retreat with her new firm’s top partners and clients—and a big surprise awaiting her in her room. When her new boss is murdered in the exact same manner as her old one, Willa can no longer ignore her suspicions about her mysterious benefactor. Everything’s been too good to be true, and now Hopper has framed her. Of course, it’s going to be difficult to apprehend a man no one seems to have met . . .
Praise for the Willa Jansson Mysteries
“Willa Jansson is one of the most articulate and surely the wittiest of women sleuths at large in the genre.” —The New York Times Book Review
“Readers will be shaken by Matera’s rapier-sharp dissection of personal relationships and radical ideologies. Matera again demonstrates that she is one of today’s best mystery writers.” —Publishers Weekly
