Blackwell North Amer
Born into a fine old Charleston family, Hammond Cross is determined to be the city's next district attorney - without sacrificing his integrity. Prosecuting the sensational murder of real estate magnate Lute Pettijohn could be his ticket into the office. Yet while Hammond anticipates his success, someone near him is plotting his downfall...
Steffi Mundell, colleague, ex-lover, and rival for the D.A.'s office...Rory Smilow, the homicide detective without equal and Hammond's avowed enemy...the wily and beautiful Davee Pettijohn, Lute's widow and Hammond's lifelong friend who's too honest to mourn the husband she despised...and Hammond's prime suspect, the mysterious woman who shares the secret that would be fatal to Hammond's ambitions.
For the first time in his career, he's bending the rules in favor of the suspect. All clues point to her guilt. Yet she holds in reserve the perfect alibi - Hammond Cross. Is she a master manipulator who set him up? Or an innocent victim?

The characters in this Brown book have a lot of backstory to them that other thrillers could be written about them, but all the while a readers attention will be drawn to what happens next for the main character. The alibi is one of my favourite Brown books because of the twist ending that was not on my list but it made almost perfect sense.
