Criminal attorney Forrest Spencer would argue no. Lucy Jackson knows with certainty that her husband is about to sexually assault their willing preadolescent daughter. Lucy has been induced by her manipulative spouse to believe that she is powerless to interfere. She will lose all - her children, her marriage, her home - if she tries in any way to intercede. Convinced she has no choice, prepared to sacrifice all for her child, she kills her husband. Spencer must find a way to convince a jury that there are times when homicide within the home may be justified.

A Cage Without Bars is a suspenseful and wonderful ride into the worlds of psychological abuse and courtroom litigation. We find ourselves flowing 2 interesting protagonists; Forest Spencer and Lucy Jackson. Friends since college they find themselves somewhat estranged after Lucy gets married. ***WARNING SPOILER AHEAD*** Lucy's husband Paul is without conscience. He is abusive and manipulative is ways that will make your stomach turn. Lucy finds herself in an untenable situation and kills him. The bulk of the drama unfolds as we watch the courtroom action of Lucy's murder trial.
Without giving anymore away I will say 3 final things:
1) I would have voted Lucy not guilty in a heartbeat on the evidence presented by Forest Spencer.
2) As the wise King Solomon once said and the great writer John Grisham portrayed in his book by the same title their is "a time to kill"
3) I have only one complaint about the book and that is the excess sex. Because of the topics some sex was required, however, there was no need for the graphic details of Forest's love life. These graphics details in no way furthered the plot.

Best of the three
This was my favorite of the three so far. The book was well written and flowed very well. It was also very unpredictable. Good reading
