Just hours before her body is found in a car in a parking lot, a young woman hands her baby to a perfect stranger and disappears. The stranger is the daughter of Delia Wainberg, a lawyer in the same firm as Joanne Kilbourn's husband. One close look at the child suggests that there might be a family relationship, and soon the truth about the child Delia gave up for adoption years ago comes out. The boy must be Delia's grandson. Then his mother is found dead, sexually assaulted and murdered. Not only is there a killer on the loose, but the dead woman's partner is demanding custody of the child.

A good engaging mystery. This was my first Gail Bowen book but now I would like to read more of hers.

An engaging mystery with some interesting characters and sub-plots but nothing predictable in the course of my reading.

Joanne was handed a baby in strange circumstances. Next day the baby's mother was found raped and murdered.

Now two women want custody of the baby. Both women have hired top lawyers and are prepared for a court fight.

Joanne is sympathetic to one woman's case, while her husband is representing the other.

Canadian "cozy"? Prairie Mom, but with a seamy side. All the books in this series have good low-key plots.

Note to my library: I've still got this one at home, but your stupid new computer's listing it as "Recently Returned"... does that mean I get to keep it?
