In Seymour Wishman’s riveting novel about law, murder, and twisted justice, a woman accused of an unthinkable crime must put her fate in the hands of an enemy.
When it comes to establishing reasonable doubt in the minds of a New York jury, defense attorney Michael Roehmer is the best in the business - and no one knows this better than rape victim Lisa Altman. She sat helplessly in the courtroom as Roehmer, smoothly and without mercy, shot gaping holes in her testimony. As a result, the man who brutally assaulted her walked free. Right and wrong, guilt and innocence, mean nothing to Roehmer. For him, winning is everything.
Now Altman is sitting at a different table: Her rapist has been savagely murdered and she’s accused of the heinous crime. Condemned by the evidence and with nowhere else to turn, the young actress needs the best legal help she can find. She needs Roehmer, because suddenly her freedom - and her very life - hang precariously in the balance.
