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.
