"Good enough story, but totally predictable"
San Francisco attorney Kali O'Brien knows that in the legal system, reality can be shaded, but she doesn't like clients who lie to her. That's what she has in Grady Barrett, a wealthy computer magnate married to Kali's best friend, who is arraigned in the rape of Deirdre Nicholas. Grady maintains that Deirdre's vivid, emotional, and thoroughly convincing deposition is a clever and manipulative web of lies spun to trap him. Then Deirdre plunges to her death from a second-story balcony.
"Doesn't Hold Up Well"
When a local waitress and her five-year-old daughter are murdered, Wes Harding - a former classmate of Kali's who had a reputation as the town's worst troublemaker - becomes the prime suspect.
