suspects that her husband is
having an affair with her friend
Deirdre. Her hurt turns to shock
when Deirdre turns up dead,
entangling Lisa in a mystery with
no alibi and no one to trust.
I hold out my
hand, and she slides
the necklace slowly into it. The light catches
the diamonds. I bring it closer. Staining just a
quarter inch of the delicate chain I see what
I am certain is dried blood.
—from Best Intentions
