“Prima Ballerina Found Dead in Bucks County”

Fabulous all the way to the startling conclusion!

In Goose Bend, PA people don’t forget. Especially something as sensational as twelve-year-old Jacob Gillis burning down the town.

Jacob returns to Goose Bend nineteen years after the fire, hoping for redemption. Now an attorney specializing in environmental issues, he thinks his chance for atonement has come when the DA asks him to help with research in a pollution suit affecting the local river. When Goose Bend’s dance teacher is murdered, Jacob’s god father, Detective William Laskey, is assigned the case. Ignoring his ties to the DA’s office, Jacob becomes involved with the victim’s sister-in-law, an act that doesn’t go unnoticed by a politically ambitious prosecutor. The prosecutor, anxious for a speedy trial but lacking adequate evidence, tries to force Jacob to give false testimony, threatening to charge him with a breach of ethics if he refuses. Only by outwitting the DA can Jacob save his reputation and career as well as the reputation and career of his godfather.
