Wit and tension building suspense offset the tendency for a reader thinking, "yet again, the beautiful rich society dame in jeopardy" finds her hero, a local criminal attorney enduring a current life crisis. In "In Her Defense," you care about both the dame and the attorney though they are at their wit's end. Interesting twists and turns and the diligent full court press by Atty. O'Connell's staff and family keep the plot churning to a satisfactory ending for the "good guys"
