When Madeleine's first choice for cocounsel declines to try a death penalty case, she is forced to turn to assistant prosecutor Elsie Arnold. Elsie is reluctant to join forces with her frosty boss, but the road to conviction seems smooth - until unexpected facts about the victim arise, and the testimony of the lone eyewitness, Ivy, becomes increasingly crucial. Against Elsie's advice, Madeleine brings in the state attorney general's office to assist them while cutthroat trial attorney Claire O'Hara joins the defense.
Elsie will not let the power of prosecution - of seeking justice - be wrested from her without a fight. She wants to win the case and to avenge the death of the mother and her unborn child. But as the trial nears, Elsie begins to harbor doubts about the death penalty itself. Meanwhile, Ivy is in greater danger than anyone knows.

This one was the best of the three. I think all three books would have been better with less filthy language. I realize based on the movies Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, MO, and Winter's Bone, apparently having completely filthy language and the poorest of the poor suspects is the way to sell more books and create Oscar-nominee movies. I would, however, like to see more books written with less filthy language when depicting my home state of which I am very proud.
