Stan is asked to defend a college student accused of killing her baby. It's a pretty hopeless case, as she has no memory of what happened. Stan knows he shouldn't even be taking the case, since he's only been in practice for a year and has never handled a murder trial. But the client's father insists, claiming "God" has sent him to Stan. Stan reluctantly agrees to take the case on the condition that his law professor assist him as "second chair" - not realizing his professor is a drunk and probably won't show up for trial.
"Appealing characters, especially in the courtroom, make this an easy entertaining read." (Publishers Weekly)
"The courtroom scenes are superb, intoxicating, the discriptions filled with power ... the novel shows Manchee as a smooth, polished master of the mystery form." (The Book Reader)
