Abstract:

Santa Fe defense lawyer Ed Eagle is the epitome of worldly success. He presides over a highly successful practice, which is moving into showcase quarters overlooking Santa Fe's Governor's Palace. He loves his work. He loves his wife. But, when he wakes up on the morning of his fiftieth birthday, he discovers his wife has left him and taken him for a cool million. The second shock Eagle receives is news that a local lawyer has blown his brains out in the courthouse, after murdering his wife and children. The plot races off in two directions: with two edgy characters, an ex-LAPD detective and an Apache Indian tracker, whom Eagle hires to find his wife in Mexico; and with Eagle's efforts to clear a man wrongly charged, he believes, with a triple homicide.
