In Oregon, the Kelso-McIvey Rehabilitation Center is known locally as the Rehab Center. The facility provides non-profit medical care for people. However, neurosurgeon David McIvey, son of one of the founders, has other plans for the place as he sees an opportunity to make money although the clinic was his mother¿s dream and his wife enjoys her volunteer work there. The current clinic leaders Dr. Greg Boardman and his wife Naomi oppose changing the clinic, but soon may have no say as David inches closer to taking total control.

However, someone takes exception to David¿s plan and kills him just outside the clinic. The police suspect that the victim¿s wife, in cahoots with a physical therapist working at the Rehab (who they believe is her lover) committed the homicide. Attorney Barbara Holloway thinks otherwise and plans to prove her clients are innocent.

CLEAR AND CONVINCING PROOF is an exciting legal thriller that will keep the audience guessing as the evidence affirms the police position as to who is the killer though clues are provided throughout the tale. The story line is fast-paced especially while Barbara explores alternate motive theories. Though the reason for the murder seems soft, it is reasonably established so fans receive a powerful investigative tale wrapped inside a strong legal thriller.

Kate Wilhelm has outdone herself with this one. More twists than you can shake a stick at - anything I say will give too much away! Read this book!

Without a doubt, David McIvey is no loss to the human race. When he is murdered, the world is a better place, for he was ruthless, arrogant, and abusive. Though a doctor, he was heartless, caring more for money than the good he could do with his considerable skill. He was on the verge of shutting down a rehab hospital in favor of more profitable enterprises. This would not only cause great harm to the patients who desperately needed the special help they received there, but also the workers and volunteers who had given their hearts and lives to it. ............... When David is found murdered, there are many likely suspects, but two stand out in particular, and defense attorney Barbara Holloway is given the job of defending them. The only way to do that is to find out the truth, but that truth is complex and elusive as it is surprising. ................ **** Though this is an absorbing mystery with well thought out characters and plot, the most fascinating aspect of this gripping book is not the murder. It is the detailed insight we are given into the rehab world. That alone makes this a worthwhile read. ****

I Really Enjoy the Barbara Holloway Series. Some of the books have been hard to find since it's such an old series but I'm really enjoying it!!!
