About this ebook

She runs a foundation dedicated to forgiveness. He’s a cop running down the guilty to make them pay. If they don’t work together, people will die.

Detective Bel Belichek and his partner arrive at a murder scene in a peaceful, historic section of Fairlington, Virginia, only to realize the victim is the cousin of Assistant Commonwealth’s Attorney Maggie Frye.

Or is it?

The family tragedy that forever scarred Maggie and her cousins, Jamie and Ally, reaches into the present, threatening to claim more lives if Belichek can’t find this murderer. And to do that he has to shut down emotions he’d thought were gone for good.

Price of Innocence, by USA Today bestselling author Patricia McLinn, is a sequel to Proof of Innocence that can also be read as a stand-alone. If you love twists and turns, characters who stick with you, and mysteries and romance swirled together, you'll love Price of Innocence. The Innocence Trilogy finale, Premise of Innocence, released in January 2022.


Praise for Proof of Innocence

"Wow! What a page-turner. I had so many people I suspected of the crimes. This was a great suspense with a touch of romance. The author added several different point-of-views from the characters, which added to the mystery of who-done-it." -- Jutzie, 5-star review

"Really enjoyed this book. A fast-paced legal thriller that keeps the reader guessing from beginning to end, this book is more a whodunit than the touch of comedy found in many of McLinn"s books." -- Lanese T., 5-star review

McLinn's writing is "so atmospheric, so descriptive of people and locale that I could swear I heard the waterfall, leaf-deadened footfalls." ... "A well-paced murder/mystery with a slow-burn romance." ... "Engaging from the beginning [with] many plot twists and plenty of action."


NOTE FROM PATRICIA McLINN TO CAUGHT DEAD IN WYOMING READERS: Proof of Innocence and Price of Innocence do not have nearly as much humor as the Caught Dead in Wyoming mysteries, although there is some. They're a bit grittier and darker ... though not in the deep end of grit and dark. For fans of mystery romance, romantic mystery and romantic suspense.
