Gorgeous and gutsy attorney Rachel Gold is ready for war on behalf of Sally Wade, who arrives in her office bruised and beaten the morning after Neville McBride, her soon-to-be-ex-husband, broke into her house and savagely attacked her. McBride, a prominent and wealthy member of the St. Louis power elite, has retained an attack-dog defense lawyer. Before Rachel can get her lawsuit on file, Sally's corpse is found tied up in her bed, apparently strangled. The clues point to McBride, the prime suspect, and the police soon view the case as essentially closed. But doubts begin to creep into Rachel's mind as she learns more about Sally's personal life. With her rough-and-ready best pal, Benny Goldberg, Rachel works her way through a labyrinth of strip club operators, crooked cops, slimy country club types, double-dealing hookers, and the hog butcher from hell.
