Window of Guilt

Chicago real estate-agent Laurie Atkins is gardening beneath the relentless August sun when her dog’s frantic barks divert her to a dead body sprawled on the front acreage of her Wisconsin summer home. She rushes inside to phone the police, but the body has disappeared. Police chalk it up to a prank call, and her husband, Ryan, tells her she’s hallucinating. Laurie begins to doubt her own sanity, until the unidentified body turns up on the driveway of Helga Beckerman, their devious neighbor.

When Ryan skips town on the holiest day on the Jewish calendar, Laurie uncovers truths she’d rather deny. The couple is plunged into a web of blackmail and deceit that threaten to destroy an already teetering marriage and jeopardize the life of their young son.

Her family in peril, Laurie enlists the help of two women she thinks she can trust: former Chicago Tribune investigative reporter Mitzy Maven, and tough-talking CPD detective Maggie O’Connor.
