Booklist Review

San Francisco attorney Kali O'Brien's best friend, Nina, has married prosperous businessman Grady Barrett and is happily expecting the couple's first child. Then tragedy strikes: Nina is diagnosed with cancer, and Grady is accused of rape. When the rape victim falls from the balcony of her house, Grady suddenly becomes a murder suspect. Kali is paired on the case with handsome attorney Marc Griffin, a former lover. As Kali scrambles to prove Grady's innocence, she finds herself frustrated by Marc's increasingly bizarre behavior and eventually begins to suspect he may somehow be involved in the case. But her keen intuition and dogged tenaciousness eventually lead her to the real story, which is as tragic as it is shocking. Jacobs' latest is a sizzling page-turner jam-packed with tense courtroom drama and nail-biting suspense. The plot is devilishly tangled, the action hot, and the heroine as cool as a cucumber. A must-read for legal thriller fans and those who have enjoyed the two earlier entries in this popular series. --Emily Melton
