This is my first Richard North Patterson book, and I really enjoyed it. However, it is not an easy read, by that I mean not one that you can read quickly. It is very indepth and involved, the story-line is complex and makes you concentrate. But if you like involved courtroom stories, this book is for you. I plan to read more of this author.

A good courtroom drama novel. A female television reporter is accused of killing a famous author that she claims attempted to rape her. She relies on a man she was with 15 years earlier that is raising their child to defend her even though she has not been truthful with him about what actually happened.
