" This is a tough book to rate, the characters and dialog are good, but the murder and Barbara's case are so bad as to be laughable. The "case" against her defendant was nonsense, no cop would make the arrest, and no prosecutor would file the charges on such non-evidence. And, in the end, Barbara's moral dilemma was meaningless - any good lawyer would have presented the evidence, and offered to help the real killer. The shame of it is that I normally like Wilhelm's work, and this one could make me quit scouring the used book stores for her stuff. "
