When Gus Marchand, an extreme fundamentalist, is murdered, suspicion falls on Alexander Feldman, a brilliant but severely deformed youth, and Barbara Holloway is called to defend him.
Barbaras suspicion falls on Hilde Franz, a middle school principal whod had conflict with Marchand. Knowing that she is a suspect, Hilde calls on her old friend Frank Holloway, Barbaras father, for legal advice.
Suspense and tension fly high in DESPERATE MEASURES. Ms. Wilhelm does a super job of combining courtroom drama with a classic detective story. (Jul., 400 pp., $24.95)
