A shared cubicle in a strip-mall law office was not the kind of career Kathleen Cotter had dreamed of but all that changes when her uncle, legendary criminal defense attorney Gerry O’Doul, invites her to join his Beverly Hills firm.
But O’Doul is old, his offices are on the wrong end of Beverly Hills, his glory days are over. It looks like another dead end for Kathleen until a new client walks through the door. Louise Booker wants her dead ex-husband’s life insurance money but the suicide stipulation is stopping her. When the case goes to court, the judge challenges Kathleen to prove that the deceased did NOT commit suicide. The investigation leads Kathleen into scandal and murder as she follows a trail of lies and corruption. To save her own life, she must face something even more dangerous than the killer – she must face the truth.
