Marianne Shearer is at the height of her career, a dauntingly successful barrister, respected by her peers and revered by her clients. So why has she killed herself? Her latest case had again resulted in an acquittal, although the outcome was principally due to the death of the prime witness after Marianne's forceful cross-examination. Had this wholly professional and unemotional lawyer been struck by guilt or uncertainty, or is there some secret to be discovered in her blandly comfortable private life? Her tenacious colleague Peter Friel is determined to find out of that last trial held the reason for her taking her own life. The transcript holds intriguing clues, but it is another witness at the trial who holds the key to the truth.

I am a Fyfield fan, but this was not the book for me. The mystery was great and the book is very well written as all Fyfield's are. She is a great Author! The story is great, I just could not get into it.
I throw myself into characters so when there are multiple points of view I have a harder time getting lost in the author's world. That is my problem with this book I did enjoy the character's though.
Rick is a nasty villain that made the story hang and drag you in. His is just a great bad guy. Fyfield did great on him.
Hen is a very great character. I loved her point of view. the best and would have preferred more of her point of view. Also more of Thomas' character too. Overall great book, just not my favorite.
