Carelessly confident that the cops will recognize his innocence when his wife is found murdered, Stuart Gorman tells them everything-and becomes not only the number-one suspect, but number-one with a bullet. He reluctantly hires lawyer Gina Roake. Back in the game after a personal loss of her own, Gina knows all too well that innocence is no guarantee of justice...

A gambling man would bet that Stuart Gorman didnt stand a chance. But then a betting man might not have tangled with Dismas Hardys law firm and in particular, with Gina Roake.
