Lily Bard has started over in the quiet town of Shakespeare, Arkansas, as a cleaning lady. She works out her anger and the pain of her past with martial arts. For Lily, the gym is a place to get away from her troubles, not find more of them. But when she stumbles on the corpse of a local bodybuilder, his neck broken with a barbell, the town's underlying racial tensions begin to boil over. The white victim was connected to two unsolved murders of black residents in Shakespeare, and a dogged policeman is determined to stop the killing. Lily may have to decide whether to stay and fight for justice, or run away one more time.

My Review

Well I have to say I am not sure I would like to live in the town of Shakespeare people seem to drop like flies.
what I do like is that through the tales of lilly Bard the author talks about issues that some would avoid like the plague. In this one Race was at the heart of instalment and I have to say it did have me cringing at times but the issue is still a hot one and one that needs airing. The down side to this is that it makes the book hard to read but the story is so good that you just have to keep going to find out just what is going on and to see if Lilly will get her man.
