Description

Charles Kendrick, the senior United States Senator from Massachusetts and a high-profile resident of Barnstable County, has been named a "person of interest" in connection with the disappearance of his twenty-five-year-old spokesperson, Michelle Forrester. A multistate manhunt is already under way, and District Attorney Geraldine Schilling is pressuring Kendrick for an interview, which his lawyer doesn't want to grant. His lawyer is Marty Nickerson, and the Senator laughs at her advice to keep quiet.
He isn't laughing three days later, when Geraldine informs him that parts of his story don't check out. It seems the Senator lied. Could he be hiding an extramarital affair with a young and beautiful staffer? Or something worse?
The Senator's troubles coincide with another trial that Marty and her law partner -- and lover -- Harry Madigan, have been preparing for. They are scheduled to defend ex-con Derrick Holliston against a felony murder charge. Holliston, a juvenile delinquent turned adult offender, stands accused of murdering a popular Chatham priest on Christmas Eve during a burglary. He admits the killing, but claims, in an improbable version of the night's events, that he acted in self-defense.
Michelle Forrester's body is found the day Derrick Holliston's trial begins, which means Marty and Harry face two mounting legal battles and two clients whose stories don't make sense.
What does a lawyer do when she discovers her client may be a liar, or worse? What are her legal and ethical obligations? And what happens when the client insists on representing himself in court? Marty Nickerson struggles with these morally ambiguous legal issues as she defends two men who are almost surely guilty...or are they?
Marty and Harry must confront the law in all its maddening complexity, battling for and against their own cagey clients in order to see justice served.
This fourth installment of the critically acclaimed series reinforces Rose Connors's reputation for stylish, page-turning legal drama at its very best.

From Publishers Weekly

06 June 2005 – Connors's latest trip to the courtroom (after Maximum Security) follows busy, resilient Cape Cod attorney Marty Nickerson and her partner in love and law Harry Madigan as they handle two cases in which their clients' stories are highly suspicious. Marty is representing U.S. Sen. from the state of Massachusetts Charles Kendrick, whose attractive, talented 25-year-old staffer Michelle Forrester mysteriously disappears. Harry Madigan, meanwhile, is appointed public defender for recently released young con Derrick Holliston, who pleads self-defense in the brutal Christmas Eve murder of Fr. Francis Patrick McMahon, claiming the priest made untoward sexual advances. Both cases explode: Kendrick, who had a heated love affair with Michelle, admits that he was with her the night before she vanished, and Holliston commits "tactical suicide" with a short-lived decision to represent himself in court. A mad scramble ensues to assemble witnesses for the Kendrick case just as Michelle's body washes up in picturesque Pleasant Bay, an implicating quarter mile from the senator's estate. Connors smartly keeps her sleuthing tight and her courtroom acrobatics succinct for another excellent, fast-moving courtroom drama headed by a plucky, energetic heroine.
