A trust fund dispute among siblings turns deadly when Isaiah, CEO of the family firm he stole from their father, is murdered in his office. Lawyer Rachel Gold, hired to bring suit against Isaiah on behalf of his sisters, must now defend one of them in a homicide trial. In this 11th outing (after The Dead Hand) Rachel is in danger of getting snared in the complex dynamics of the family. As Rachel and her team investigate, she struggles with family issues of her own, including widowhood and mending her relationship with her young son Sam. A trial lawyer by day and novelist by night, Michael Kahn not surprisingly brings authenticity and nuance to this courtroom thriller.
