Publisher's Summary

Whether it's poker or trial law, wisecracking Rita Morrone plays to win, especially when she takes on the defense of the Honorable Fiske Hamilton, a prominent federal judge accused of sexual harassment. And it's no coincidence that the judge is her live-in lover's father. Then the action turns deadly, and Rita finds herself at the center of a murder case. She probes deep into the murder, uncovering a secret life and suspects in shocking places. When the killer viciously ups the ante, Rita decides to end this lethal game. She lays it all on the line for the highest stakes ever: her life.

A decent mystery

I wasn't sure I would like this because I generally prefer unabridged but it was pretty good. I enjoy the author and thought this one of her better efforts. Plot twists and interesting characters make for a good story.

Great Read, Love the characters

Karen Allen is a great narrator, I will search for books she narrates. Morreno is one feisty attorney. If this is a series I will buy more.
