Abstract:

Five years ago Barbara Holloway gave up practicing law, disillusioned with a profession that put politics before justice. Then she receives a phone call with a simple message: "I need you." Nell Kendrick's husband disappeared seven years earlier, abandoning his young family. Nell hasn't seen him since, until the day Lucas Kendricks arrives at the edge of her property and is shot, killed instantly. Accused of his murder, Nell turns to lawyer Frank Holloway for help. Frank knows he cannot win this case alone and calls upon his daughter, Barbara, who remains "death qualified", legally able to defend clients who face the death penalty. The more Barbara learns, the more questions she finds. Despite her vow, Barbara finds herself drawn to the case and reclaims the search for truth that first led her to the law.
