In The Ex Alafair Burke amply demonstrates her talents as a writer in showing that a picture can't show what you see and listening to each word can't tell you what you hear. A man is arrested for murder, or is he framed? An old flame takes the case but what happened twenty years ago? What really happened at the triple murder scene and what does the daughter know? Twists and turns say, "start this one when you can stay awhile." A riveting effort.
