In Cave Creek, Arizona, defense attorney Clare Westbrooke is shocked when she learns someone murdered her sleazy boss Harvey Kredd. Heading the investigation is Homicide Detective Anthony Sonterra, who detested Harvey and his law firm for their penchant to stretch rules to exonerate obviously guilty punks. In fact, the infamous Lench debacle led to a break up between Clare and Anthony.

Anthony questions Clare about her public fight with Harvey not long before he died. Clare insists the battle was over who would take a hit for the Lench notoriety. If this is not bad enough for Clare, her brother-in-law Mike Fletcher has been let out of prison and begins making demands to see perhaps regain custody over his daughter. Clare hates Mike because she believes he killed her sister and will never allow him control over her niece. With her personal world near collapsing, coping with the man she loves who disrespects her and feeling like an indentured servant at work, Clare wonders if perhaps it is time to flee with her niece.

This is an exciting romantic suspense thriller that will leave readers wondering whether justice for one person may mean injustice for someone else. The story line is action-packed and is at its best when the lead couple is in conflict. When Clare easily falls into Anthony's bed after a frightening intense day, readers will wonder how someone so intelligent can be so stupid especially on top of that keeping secret her indentured status from the man she loves. Still DON'T LOOK NOW is Linda Lael Miller at her intriguing best.
