Five years ago Barbara Holloway gave up practicing law, disillusioned with a profession that put politics before justice. Then she receives a phone call, with a simple message: "I need you." Nell Kendricks's husband disappeared seven years earlier, abandoning his young family. Nell hasn't seen him since, until the day Lucas Kendricks arrives at the edge of her property and is shot, instantly killed. Accused of his murder, Nell turns to lawyer Frank Holloway for help. But Frank knows he cannot win this case alone. He calls upon his daughter Barbara, who remains "death qualified" -- legally able to defend clients who face the death penalty if convicted. Barbara is determined to stay distanced from the case, but the more she learns, the more questions she finds herself asking. Is Nell innocent, as Frank attests? Where has Lucas Kendricks been for the past seven years? Despiter her vow, Barbara finds herself drawn to the case and reclaims the search for truth that first led her to the law.

This is the first in a mystery series involving Barbara Halloway, and is in many ways the best. I've read it multiple times, and each time I don't want it to end. Wilhelm spins a fascinating tale, and her writing always evokes the Pacific Northwest setting.
