About the Book

Laura Adler, Public Defender, takes on the appeal of a man only because he was a childhood friend. Half-believing there are no real grounds for the appeal, she is shocked when strange, and dangerous, events threaten her own life.

The problem is many of the suspects are friends of the victim or of Laura, herself: two prosecutors, an attorney in private practice, a photographer, a scientist at the med school, and Laura's client, himself.

The P.D. meets a Baptist pastor who unwittingly may have the key to the victim's death and the two of them form an unlikely partnership and see the case to its surprising conclusion.
