Overview

San Francisco attorney Kali O'Brien knows that in the legal system, reality can be shaded, but she doesn’t like clients who lie to her. That’s what she has in Grady Barrett, a wealthy computer magnate married to Kali's best friend, who is arraigned in the rape of Deirdre Nicholas. Grady’s claim that the sex was consensual doesn't excuse the hurt he’s caused his wife and his reputation, and puts Kali in a bind because she doesn’t believe him. Especially in the shadow of Deirdre's vivid, emotional, and thoroughly convincing deposition--damning testimony that Barrett maintains is a clever and manipulative web of lies spun to trap him. Then Deirdre plunges to her death from a second-story balcony. A tragic accident? Or cold-blooded murder? Now, bound to a client she can’t trust, Kali finds herself straddling a fine line.

    Super, Fabulous, Suspenseful, Cliffhanger!

    psk This book has all the attributes any reader would want. You just can't stop reading it. It is extremely well written and holds your interest till the last page. You just want it to go on longer. The characters are completely believable and you can relate to the plot. I will make it a point to read future Jonnie Johnson books. Bravo and many Kudos.
