"Twelve years ago, in a coastal Florida town, a beautiful young wife and mother was savagely murdered. Kenny Ray Clark, a local troublemaker with a felony record, was quickly arrested, tried, found guilty and sentenced to death. When new evidence comes to light, Miami attorney Gail Connor agrees to take the case, although her fiancé, Anthony Quintana, a top criminal defense lawyer, warns her not to get involved. But one look at the trial transcript convinces Gail that her client was wrongfully convicted, and she will do everything in her power to stop the execution.

In a desperate race against time, Gail must overcome her pride to ask Anthony for help. Together, they push themselves and the law to the breaking point to find the real killer. But nothing can prepare them for the layers of greed, deception, and cruelty that lay hidden for so many years behind a brutal crime. And nothing can precent them from becomin the targets of terrible vengeance.

Filled with her trademark blend of adrenalin-charged plot, complex characters, and sizzling Florida atmosphere, Suspicion of Vengeance is bestselling author Barbara Parker at her galvanizing best.
