Trial lawyer Rita Morrone defends powerful Judge Fiske Hamilton against a sexual abuse charge, then a murder charge. The novel is more than a legal thriller. It's also a good story about trust and relationships. The best scenes are explosive exchanges between Rita and her live-in lover, the judge's son. Here Karen Allen's narration is superb as she delivers each verbal blow with passion and conviction. Allen also maintains a good pace as she goes from the tension in the courtroom to the human passions outside. This is a good audio presentation, which lifts a well-crafted story to a higher level.
