The Last Witness: A Mars Bahr Mystery

Front Cover
Macmillan, Jun 14, 2004 - Fiction - 384 pages
Heiress Terri Jackman was brutally murdered, and everyone-including Minneapolis Homicide detective "Mars" Bahr-believes that her abusive husband, basketball star Tayron "T-Jack" Jackman, did it. But he has an unshakeable alibi...

T-Jack was with Terri's parents and lawyer signing divorce papers when the killing took place. Now, to add insult to injury, he's pocketing a $100 million settlement-the price Terri's desperate parents paid to get her out of the marriage. Mars feels a burning need for justice in this case. But he's transferring out of Homicide in just ten day and facing a family crisis that could cost him his son. Is there time to find the flaw in T-Jack's perfect crime?

Soon Mars has hit the wall, which is broad and blue and looks like the new Chief of Police. Politics block his every shot...and so is a killer who has left no loose ends, just a path strewn with dead bodies. Because no one can squeal when they're as silent as the grave...
