Can She Free A Wrongly Imprisoned Man? Or Is She Risking Her Life To Save A Killer?

The last time Chicago lawyer Quille C. Davis investigated a crime as a favor to a friend, it destroyed the friendship. But she can't say no when a desperate teenage girl begs her to help free her father, now in jail for murder.

Moved by the girl's story, she sets out to find the real killer. Prosecutors say the man poisoned his victim – the girl’s mother. But the girl remains steadfast in her belief in her father’s innocence.

No one Quille talks to was fond of the murdered woman:

Her older daughter left for college and never looked back, her best friend stopped speaking to her after a fight, and the woman herself was on the brink of divorce. The only warm feelings the victim had were for her German Shepherd, a rescue dog who frightens friends and strangers alike.

Yet Quille finds it hard to uncover a motive for murder – or a clear suspect. Except, that is, for the girl’s father, whose trial date looms ever closer. The more Quille follows the clues, the more she risks the lives of everyone the victim knew. Including the girl who sought her help in the first place.

Can she discover the truth before it’s too late?

The Troubled Man is the fourth book in the Q.C. Davis Mystery series, and it also stands alone. If you enjoy crime novels featuring clever female detectives, unraveling mysteries, and life-and-death stakes, then you’ll love Lisa M. Lilly’s exciting new addition to the series.
