Publisher's Summary

Controversial author and scholar David Etheridge is not the kind of company an aspiring politician wants to keep. But ambitious senator Robert McCrutchen has a history with Etheridge that he's desperately trying to keep under wraps: 22 years ago, both men were investigated in the still-unsolved death of a young coed.When Etheridge returns to Oregon, McCrutchen is his grudging host - until the senator is found shot dead. Now, Etheridge is once again suspected of murder, only this time, with the cold case reopened, he's facing a double charge.Attorney Barbara Holloway must battle both the prosecution and the court of public opinion, which has already tried and convicted Etheridge for both murders. As the pressure mounts, Barbara must risk her own life to protect a client and preserve justice.

I can not believe I listened to all of this book

This book was awful with occasional flashes of adequacy. The story seemed forced,the dialogue was flat, and the characters were barely believable. I won't buy another book by this author.

Kate Wilhelm has lost her way

I have purchased and listened to many Kate Wilhelm books. She is capable of writing a good story. However, each book now becomes more of an agenda driven book of the worst kind - one which is so obvious and unimaginative as to try to cram a political philosophy down the gullet of the reader. I don't mind an author using a good story to make a point, but Ms. Wilhelm abandons the story at some points, and inserts meaningless characters in at other points just to pound the reader with her political philosophy. She is about as subtle and creative as a sledge hammer to the face. I will not waste any more audible credits to be preached to in such an obvious and non-creative way.
