This book has great courtroom drama and a twisting plot that moves swiftly. Interesting surprise ending. Even if you figure out what will happen, you won't be able to guess HOW it happens. Characters are well developed to the point that you find yourself mentally insisting that they do or don't do certain acts.

This book is a good introduction to the Barbara Holloway series. Kate Wilhelm has created a brilliant lawyer with a conscience, and personal problems that she must deal with, while solving other people's very complicated problems.
This book involves her defending a woman accused of killing her husband, who has returned after disappearing for 7 years.
I enjoyed it very much.

According to the blurb: Wilhelm is a masterful storyteller whose novels have just the right blend of solid plot, compelling mystery and great courtroom drama.

I found the courtroom scenes taut and well written but the premise was a little to sci-fi for me to get around. Still the book was interesting and certainly kept me wrapped into the book until quite late in the evening. All in all a good read.

She gave up her promising law career because she was disillusioned with the profession and how it put politics way before justice. But she is called back with a simple note - - "I need you." Can Barbara get back into the swing of her old life long enough to save an old friend?

I am a fan of Kate Wilhelm. Her lead character, Barbara Holloway is extremely believable, likable, intelligent and cabable. This book in the series is particular interesting as it deals with the "impact of ideas". You'll like it!
