For rich, good-looking Bradley Cogburn, law school seemed to be a lark. Everything came easy to him - including his sparkling academic record. Even an accusation of plagiarism didn't faze him: he was sure he could prove his innocence.
But for ex-cop Hannah Barlow, law school was her last chance. She'd left the force feeling like a failure, and hoped a law career would let her pursue justice in a different way. Surrounded by youthful, competitive students, she struggled to keep up. But as Bradley's moot-court partner, she was tainted by the same accusation - and unlike him, she didn't have family money to fall back on.
Now Bradley Cogburn is dead. And the evidence that could save Hannah's law career seems to be gone along with him.
Hannah has to act like a cop again. This time, it's her own life that's at stake...
