California attorney Josie Baylor–
Bates agrees to defend an old flame when his sister requests her help. Grace McCreary, whose brother Matthew is
a senatorial candidate, asks Josie to defend him if he's charged in the murder of his wife, Michelle, who died after falling from the balcony of their penthouse apartment. Years ago, Matthew and Josie lived together while when she was an attorney for the wealthy. Today, Josie works for the downtrodden and enjoys the simple life.

Michelle's murder turns out to be anything but simple, and when Grace is charged with the crime, Josie agrees to represent her. Josie unearths the lies and hidden secrets of the McCreary
family, exposing truths that could ruin Matthew's political career. To complicate matters, Josie is being stalked by the irate husband of a client who just won
a huge civil judgment against him.

Suspense never ceases in this riveting novel, which has twists that only a
top-notch thriller can provide. Forster uncovers the depths of Josie's personality, revealing a likeable protagonist whose
grit and determination are evenly matched by her integrity. (Feb., 384
