Tim Green returns to Casey Jordan, the heroine of his bestseller The Letter of the Law. Now, years later, Casey has left her high-powered practice and opened a legal aid clinic. When an illegal Mexican immigrant is shot to death on a ranch outside Dallas, it makes the news, not because of the immigrant but because of the shooter, rising political star Senator Chase. The death appears to be a hunting accident, and the well-loved senator spins the disaster artfully with his tearful press conference. But then the wife of the victim steps forward with another tale–and evidence of a cover-up of epic proportions. Casey approaches the district attorney's office hoping he will prosecute, only to discover that no one wants to tangle with the senator, a powerful man on track for a presidential nomination. Clever and ambitious, Casey isn't afraid to stick her neck out even when it's an unpopular move. But when she goes after the senator herself, suddenly everyone she is close to is a target for a man who seems to be above the law...

Professional reviews

"When an illegal Mexican immigrant is shot by a Texas senator, his body cremated, and his wife hastily deported--attorney Casey Jordan must discover why. In doing so, she must fight local police, bureaucrats, and the senator and his minions. Bernadette Dunne's performance is masterful as she smoothly slips from character to character. Her portrayal of Jordan is particularly noteworthy--the listener hangs on her every word and action. Dunne also captures the various Mexicans and the novel's minor characters as she gives the book a memorable personality. Her accents are realistic, and the tones she uses to highlight events add to the strength of the story, and its powerful conclusion. D.J.S.
