Book Description


See all titles by Jonathan Kellerman.

In her palatial Pacific Heights mansion, above a city glittering in the night, Lara Ashford lies dead. A former beauty queen and the wife of a powerful ex-congressman, she was a woman who made mistakes - married to a man who made even more. Grace Harris and Barrett Dickson are the two attorneys caught in the fray, clinging to their careers, their troubled lives, their shaken ideals. The trial of Elliot Ashford for the brutal murder of his wife will turn them into adversaries in the courtroom, even as they find themselves dangerously close to each other outside it. For Grace, bent on justice no matter what the cost, the prosecution hinges on flawed and circumstantial evidence. For Barrett, a once-great advocate now on the fast track to oblivion, the defense hinges on an alibi that will not hold up. With a key piece of evidence mysteriously vanished...with the D.A. trying to run from his secrets all the way to the governor's mansion...and with influential people pulling strings on both sides, an innocent jury will be drawn into the cross fire, as a case driven by personal vendettas and hidden motives erupts in violence. Because - behind the headlines, the politics, and the legal maneuvering, behind the lies, the evasions, and the stunning reversals - another player is in the game: one with a front-row seat, and a history of madness and murder...
