STRANGE BEDFELLOWS

A Charlotte Justice Novel

2006

One World/Ballantine Books

Hardcover

ISBN : 0-345-45702-1

 
Thirteen years ago, Charlotte Justice’s husband and child were murdered in their own driveway. Now, following a particularly violent incident involving a fellow officer, Charlotte is on the edge herself, bedeviled by bloody memories and living on single malt scotch and antacids. But a cold case is bringing her back to work... and a department shrink is willing to help her through it—as long as she is willing to help herself. So Charlotte resumes the hunt for the shooter who gunned down a prominent Republican businessman, his young wife, and two Muslim business associates outside an elegant Los Angeles restaurant. The case has turned hot because Charlotte’s initial suspect has suddenly surfaced as the cause of a freak auto accident.

The trouble is, the suspect is in a coma and the man he presumably shot is still hovering somewhere between life and death. And once Charlotte and her colleagues start digging, the investigation careens in unpredictable directions, from the meddlesome interest of a smooth-talking FBI agent to the bizarre drama unfolding around the victim’s family and business. While Charlotte is accustomed to white cops, black cops, and perps of every shade and persuasion, this case is stranger than even she could have guessed. Worst of all: it’s also about her, her contentious family, and a terrible secret of their own.
