    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.

    The woman gives her name as Betty. No last name. No phone number. Just a meeting place - a deserted, wooded park on the outskirts of Lake Tahoe. The one condition - come alone. San Francisco attorney Kali O'Brien understands client confidentiality, but something about Betty's urgent request has her a little spooked. The moment Betty meets with Kali, she's shot and killed by a sniper, and Kali barely escapes with her life. She's left with more questions than answers.
