Gideon felt, and wanted to be able to prove, that Borgman had murdered his first wife.
But it seemed extremely possible that Borgman--innocent or guilty--was going to have everything going his way unless somehow Gideon could get his hands on one piece of evidence.

Gideon's Risk is Marric in top form, recounting another in the series of Gideon adventures that will delight Commander George Gideon's many many fans.
