A Hot Lawyer, An Old Flame, And (Maybe) A Cold Corpse
Alex and her husband, Paul, are criminal lawyers practicing together in London. Their work is putting a strain on their marriage, as she feels he is all too willing to represent the guilty. Then Will Dearden, an old friend whom she hasn’t seen for twelve years, calls upon her for help. He still lives in Norfolk, where they grew up together. His elegant wife, Grace, has disappeared. The police, he thinks, aren’t trying hard enough to find her.
Despite—or maybe because—Alex once had a crush on Dearden, she goes to his aid, and discovers that he had very good reason for murdering the alluring but not so very lovable Grace

Clare Francis is the author of the bestselling novels Night Sky, Red Crystal, and Wolf Winter as well as the nonfiction bestsellers Come Hell or High Water, Come Wind or Weather, and The Commanding Sea. A Dark Devotion is the third Clare Francis novel to be published by Soho, after Deceit and Betrayal. She lives in London.From AudioFile:
In a tale as bleak as the wintry Norfolk marshes, lawyer Alex O'Neil is asked to solve the disappearance of a former love's wife. It turns out that Grace Dearden wasn't quite the paragon she'd appeared to be. Her body surfaces, along with ugly revelations of affairs and shady land deals. Devotion owes a lot to Rebecca and even more to Harriet Walter's expert reading. She ably delineates several characters/suspects but is unable to make them particularly likeable or sympathetic. The predictable conclusion lies in the marshes, but one gets quite bogged down in subplots getting there. J.B.G. (c)AudioFile, Portland, Maine
