Martha “Marty” Nickerson, a Cape Cod district attorney turned defense lawyer, must defend a man who shot his son’s presumed killer—on live television. The only possible defense is insanity, but the grieving father refuses to say he was crazy when he pulled the trigger.

Marty and her partner in love and law, Harry Madigan, are already stretched thin when, on the eve of Buck’s trial, a bleeding woman staggers into their office. Her attacker has just been found—dead— and he’s an officer of the court. Now Marty has two seemingly impossible—and seemingly unrelated—cases on her slate. However, a losing verdict may be the least of Marty’s worries, as her harrowing hunt for the truth leads to shocking revelations and possible links that bring devastating twists to Buck’s trial—and may put Marty in the sight line of a vengeful and all too capable killer.

Quotes & Awards

  • “[Connors] is so good at creating believable characters…that even readers with little interest in courtroom shenanigans should find in favor of her humanity.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “Conners’ flair for crisp, tightly focused dialogue is especially evident in audio. Dunne’s versatile voice ably meets the challenge; she paces each stirring crescendo with exacting tempo, tone, and volume…seeming to inhabit each character, whether a deranged serial slayer or a disturbed jurist. With the flair and facility of a veteran storyteller, Dunne unerringly turns fine writing into a magnetic listening experience.”

    " Ms. Connors has gotten much better at ending her books. I was very disappointed at the ending of the first in this series, but this one was a LOT better. I can't say that I agree with the verdict, but I DO understand it! "
