Overview

BILL ABERNATHY's medical career and freedom are jeopardized when his wife accuses him of raping her and their five-year-old daughter. He hires hot-blooded trial attorney BEA ARCHIBALD to fight for child custody and to defend him against the criminal charges.

Bea's lover and sounding board, Hugh Engle, a Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court judge, fills her in on a long-time pimp for sitting judges. The pimp's former law partner, Goldblatt, is a retired judge who's willing to sit as a master on the divorce case, and is Bea's only hope of getting a fair judge.

She deposes those who are conspiring to prosecute Bill. As the evidence stacks up, she hires experts: One to conduct a lie detector test, both to give her some assurance of Bill's truthfulness and to help her persuade the DA of his innocence; another, a forensic psychologist, to administer a penile plethysmograph to determine whether Bill is a pedophile; and a third, to teach Goldblatt about memory development.

Consumed by the embers spreading from one worker to another in the corrupt family-law industry, Bea risks her legal career by helping Bill escape his smoldering tragedy and challenging a vitriolic judge infamous for handing out the maximum sentence in rape cases.

    Bills wife accuses him of raping her, then later raping his 5 year old daughter.




    He brings in BEA ARCHIBALD a very high powered lawyer to help in. 




    I got stuck into this book last night, then again today, it unfolds brilliantly, and I was just the same as Bea, did he? or didn't he? Of course, she has to protect him.




    When it unfolds that the little girl was examined and found to have Chlamydia, yet the father was never tested, I thought that was odd.




    I was swinging from one opinion to the next throughout this book, that to me means it was good, it was unpredictable until the end.




    I'd like to thank CreateSpace Independent Publishing Platform on Net Galley for allowing me to read and review this. I really enjoyed it.(
