The Guilty Plea

Really, really looking forward to reading this one as one of the main character is from Cobalt!!

Guilty Plea

Robert Rotenberg

On the August morning his headline-grabbing divorce trial is due to begin, multi-millionaire Quentin Wyler is found dead on his kitchen floor. He's been stabbed seven times. But the dead man left a clue: a single word, spelled out in his four-year-old's letter magnets, is fixed to the fridge door.Detective Ari Greene arrives minutes before the international press, who are obsessed by Wyler's torrid affair with a young Hollywood starlet. The city's going through a crime wave and the heat is on Greene. Hours after the funeral, Wyler's ex-wife Tamar is charged with the murder.For veteran defence lawyer Ted DiPaulo, widowed and raising two teenagers, his biggest obstacle is his own client. Tamar Wyler is a strange, enigmatic beauty who comes from an old mining town in Northern Ontario. And DiPaulo's up against a determined prosecutor: Jennifer Raglan has recently stepped down as head crown and she's back with her husband - after an affair with Detective Greene...What should be a straight-forward guilty plea turns into a complex murder trial, and leaves a trail of unanswered questions in its aftermath.
