Attorney Nina Reilly, struggling to make a living in her one-woman office and raise a young son alone, agrees to take Lindy”s case. Nina knows winning is a long shot, even with a brilliant jury consultant and a palimony expert on her side. It”s the kind of case–full of passion and explosive secrets–that could make a fortune for a young lawyer. Or drive someone to commit murder–for love, money . . . or the right verdict.
