"When Elise Vanderzell plummets from her bedroom balcony one gorgeous summer night, her children awaken to a nightmare. Their mother is dead. Their father is charged with her murder. Lawyer Kate Lange knows all about nightmares. She's survived the darkest period of her troubled life and the wounds are still raw. Now she's been handed a case that seems utterly unwinnable: defending her boss, high-profile lawyer Randall Barrett. A prosecutor's dream suspect, Randall is a man who was cuckolded by his ex-wife. A man who could not control his temper. A man who had argued bitterly with the victim the previous day in full view of the children. With limited criminal law experience, Kate finds herself enmeshed in a family fractured by doubt. Randall's teenage son is intent on killing him. His daughter wants only to feel safe again. And the entire legal community would like nothing better than to see Randall receive a public comeuppance. As Kate races to stay a step ahead of the prosecution, a silent predator is waiting for the perfect time to deal the final blow." --Back cover.

This novel was an Ok read but the ending proved to be too quick, especially since 3/4 of the book was so detailed then suddenly it all packaged up to a unbelievable and quick end. I thought the book lacked credibilty. I doubt I would waste my time on another novel by this author.
