Publisher's Summary

At the urgent request of Harry Madigan, Martha "Marty" Nickerson takes on the defense of Louisa Rawlins, a woman suspected of murdering her wealthy husband. Harry is Marty's law partner, her lover, and, coincidentally, Louisa Rawlins' ex-lover. Glamorous and charismatic, Louisa is the polar opposite of Marty. Though the evidence against Louisa is compelling, Marty's gut tells her that something doesn't quite fit. Yet, as the trial progresses, Marty begins to doubt her own judgment.

Illuminating the law even as she entertains, Rose Connors once again proves herself a consummate storyteller whose legal expertise and literary skills shine through on every page.

Critic Reviews

"A nicely detailed Cape Cod setting, appealing and realistically rendered characters, and an engaging romantic relationship between Marty and Harry make this an enjoyable legal thriller." (Booklist)

So-so book, terrific reading

While the mystery here is lukewarm, the writing is funny and the narration is *really* funny, with the reader truly relishing the differences between the characters while never overstepping the story.
