Lamb to the Slaughter

Lamb to the Slaughter

by Jennifer Rowe

Paperback(Mass Market Paperback)



His was a homecoming watched round the world—but was he an innocent victim or a coldhearted killer?
After serving five years for the murder of his wife, Trevor Lamb was a free man . . . thanks to idealistic lawyer Jude Dilanchion, whose bestselling book, Lamb to the Slaughter, cast doubt on Trevor’s guilt. It was just like Jude, thought Verity Birdwood, to fight for the wrongly imprisoned, even when Jude himself would be the first to say Trevor Lamb was a manipulative bastard.
So now the prodigal son was returning home to the bosom of his family, with Jude in tow. And Birdie, on assignment for ABC-TV, is joining them to get the first interview with the newly released prisoner. But soon after their arrival in Hope’s End, another murder takes place . . . leaving Birdie to scrabble for the truth among the lowlife Lambs and a town steeped in bloody secrets.
