In the fast-paced, high-tech world of the twenty-first century, death is no longer a mystery. With the advent of DNA testing and other forensic sciences, the cause of death is often known with certainty. But when a woman is found dead in her home, the detectives on her case are stymied. There is no evidence of a crime, and no one seems to know who she was.

As they investigate, the detectives soon realize that the woman's death may have something to do with the death of her husband two years earlier. But even as they try to piece together the woman's life and the death of her husband, they are constantly thwarted by the apparent lack of evidence.

Then, as the detectives get closer to the truth, they are met with another obstacle: the legal system. In an age of DNA evidence and high-tech forensics, the detectives find themselves up against powerful opponents who are determined to keep the woman's death; 8vo; 467 pages; TBC FSA.
