At a gala event in downtown Dallas, lawyer Sharon Hays runs into an old friend turned Hollywood star who is in town promoting her most recent film with her current lover-a Hollywood bad boy. But when a brutally murdered corpse is discovered in her posh hotel suite, the starlet finds herself accused of the crime. Sharon is all too eager to take up her friend's defense, but the facts of what happened that night in the hotel room are far from clear....
Beautiful and brainy Texas attorney Sharon Hays must stand alone against mobsters, political corruption, and cover-ups when she discovers key evidence that could prove a man on death row innocent of killing his socialite wife. But little does she realize that the real killer still prowls in the shadows-and will stop at nothing to silence her!
The crime: murder. The accused: a wealthy Texas congressman. The victim: a young intern with whom he was having an affair. Attorney Sharon Hays is reluctant to defend this charismatic politician-for highly personal reasons. Now she must either withdraw from the case, confessing to the secrets of her own past, or remain silent and defend a man she has every reason to hate. |Prologue1234567891011121314151617181920212223
