It took months for psychiatrist Janine McQuarrie to succumb to her husband's pressure to have sex with strangers at suburban spouse-swapping parties, and after attending a few, she is murdered. Was it her husband--whose father is the head of the Crime Investigation Unit--one of her psychiatric patients, a swinger, or someone unexpected?

Industry Reviews

Praise for Snapshot "Disher's stories are tough-minded, character-rich, and strong on social conscience . . . For me, a writer like Disher--old-fashioned in the best sense of the term--is the most satisfying." --The Philadelphia Inquirer

"[Disher's] police procedural novels rival American notables for crisp plotting and strong emphasis on character." --Baltimore Sun

"Full of surprises . . . [Disher] has packed this police procedural with the kind of detail that enthralls fans of the genre and with deftly sketched characters . . . the coolly contemporary and finely grained Snapshot lives up to the immediacy of its title." --Ft. Worth Star-Telegram

Praise for the Hal Challis series

"This series boasts careful, realistic casework, but there's enough darkness and ambiguity to suit John Harvey fans and a kind of which-way-is-up sense of the police force that recalls early James Ellroy. Moody, inventive, and extremely hard to put down." --Booklist
