Jane Lawless is at her wit's end keeping her Minneapolis restaurants running while volunteering on her father's campaign for governor. With an eleven-point lead, the race is Ray Lawless's to lose, but all that changes when his rival posts a list of violent criminals that are back on the streets early, thanks to Ray's work during his career as a defense lawyer.

Corey Hodge is one of the convicts that took Ray's advice to plead guilty for a crime that he swears he didn't commit. Bitter from time served, revenge lurks in the back of his mind. Then one of Ray's young campaign volunteers is killed, and with the murder mirroring the crime Corey was convicted of, Jane has to bring the killer to justice to save her father's political career and to keep Corey from going to prison again.

The high stakes and political intrigue that fuel Sweet Poison , the latest in Lambda and Minnesota Book Award--winning author Ellen Hart's absorbing Jane Lawless series, make for an intense mystery of ambition and obsession.

Book 16 in the Jane Lawless series

There were many side stories weaving in and out, of which I'm sure, if I had read the entire book, would have understood why they were all there, however...: Jane's former love life; Jane's current love life; Jane's ex's story; Corey (the convict); Chris & Luke; on and on...
