The Undertaker’s Widow
By Phillip Margolin
Doubleday, 1998. 312 pgs. Fiction
After ruling on a high profile case, Judge Richard Quinn is selected to preside over a controversial case against Congresswoman candidate Ellen Crease, who may or may not be involved in the death of her husband.
Though a legal thriller, not much of the action takes place in the court room, much to my delight. One line of investigation leads to another, and soon, deceit, passion, money and power all come into play in this enthralling story.
