When an illegal Mexican immigrant is shot on a ranch outside Dallas, it makes the news, not because of the immigrant, but because of the shooter, Senator Tucker Dean. It looks like a hunting accident, and the well-loved young Senator spins the disaster artfully with his tearful press conference, until the sister in law of the victim steps forward with another tale.

The senator’s wife was regularly visiting the victim, so Casey Jordan theorizes he was shot by the husband for revenge. When INS takes the victim’s daughter away and tries to deport his wife, it looks like a cover-up of epic proportions. Casey approaches the DA’s office with information, only to discover that no prosecutor will take on this case. The senator is powerful and on track for a presidential nomination in a few years, so no one wants to tangle with him.

Casey is determined to see the truth come out. If the state won’t prosecute a murderer, she will sue him in civil court on behalf of the mother. But this popular senator is wily, vindictive, and dangerous. What will happen to Casey when she goes up against a man who seems above the law?

    " Before I started reading this book, I figured that it was going to be a "pro-woman" book that I wouldn't like all that much and after reading, I would stick it on the donation pile. I ended up liking it really well. The story was good and it kept me wanting to read more and more. "
