Now, years later, Casey has left her high-powered practice and opened a legal aid clinic. When an illegal Mexican immigrant is shot to death on a ranch outside Dallas, it makes the news, not because of the immigrant but because of the shooter, rising political star Senator Chase. The death appears to be a hunting accident, and the well-loved senator spins the disaster artfully with his tearful press conference. But then the wife of the victim steps forward with another tale and evidence of a cover-up of epic proportions. Casey approaches the district attorney's office hoping he will prosecute, only to discover that no one wants to tangle with the senator, a powerful man on track for a presidential nomination.
Clever and ambitious, Casey isn't afraid to stick her neck out even when it's an unpopular move. But when she goes after the senator herself, suddenly everyone she is close to is a target for a man who seems to be Above the Law.

The book had me on the edge of my seat through a lot of it.I liked the characters, but the way it concluded made me reconsider ever looking to this author again and pretty much ruined the book for me. Without spoiling too much, I'll just say that much of this book was building up to something that was never payed off.
Best thing about the book was the narrator. I'll listen to more of her work.
