Abstract:

As a fast-talking, wisecracking rebel with a cause, Rita Morrone makes one tough poker player--and an even tougher trial lawyer. Morrone takes on the defense of a distinguished federal judge, the Honorable Fiske Hamilton, who's been accused of sexually harassing his young secretary in one of the most high-profile cases in the country. And it's not coincidence that Morrone and Judge Hamilton's son are romantic roommates. Then the action turns deadly, and Morrone finds herself at the center of a murder case. The judge is the prime suspect, with a big-time motive and a see-through alibi. When the killer viciously ups the ante, Morrone decides to end this lethal game. She lays it all on the line for the highest stakes ever--her life.
