To save her brother, Cass must put a cop killer behind bars In 1982, Jan Gebhardt was smuggling illegal immigrants across the Canadian border when a federal agent got in her way. Jan was arrested for his murder, and her boyfriend, Ron, was booked as an accessory. When Jan went into hiding, the charge against Ron was put on hold. Fifteen years later, she emerges to face what she's done—and drags Ron right down with her. Brooklyn attorney Cass Jameson wouldn't give a damn about Jan Gebhardt if it weren't for the fact that Ron is her brother. He's also a wheelchair-bound Vietnam veteran. She is about to try a separate case when she learns that her brother is facing prison time. Cass gets a forty-eight-hour adjournment from the judge. She has two days to get Ron out of trouble, but he still has feelings for Jan, and this case will destroy a few more lives before it's through.
