Two gut-wrenching cases draw Cass into mortal danger
In her many years as a defense attorney, Cass Jameson has represented every kind of client—male and female, good and evil, rich and poor. But rarely has she gotten the chance to work for the most unusual client of all: the innocent one. She comes to the second appellate court on behalf of one of these rare blameless victims, Keith Jernigan, to argue that corrupt police work convicted him of a robbery he did not commit. But when she learns that Keith is guilty of something far uglier, she realizes she has been fighting to keep an evil man on the streets—and putting his girlfriend in danger.
While she tries to keep Keith’s girlfriend safe, Cass takes a divorce case on behalf of a brilliant photographer whose husband has been abusing her for years. The divorce turns bloody, and it will take every ounce of Cass’s strength to keep these two situations from becoming twin tragedies.
