Another good Barbara Holloway book. Although still focusing on her role as a defense lawyer, there is no trial here. All of the action occurs before the case is tried. ( )

A fun addition to this very readable series. Not as good as the best Holloway stories. ( )

The Barbara Holloway series by Kate Wilhelm is just a absolutely excellent batch of detective, legal, personal, and other interesting sidelights. Like Linda Fairstein's stories, I'm always learning something new feel so disappointed when the story ends. I'm glad the cases are adjudicated (no one wants to sit on a jury any longer than they have to) but I always want to know more, to see into the future. And so far, I've not been disappointed. ( )

Have read several Kate Wilhelm books. This is not one of her best but very readable. An old murdery mystery connects to a new one in this Barbara Hollaway thriller. Is the first mystery connected to the second? And, if so, how? I like the Hollaway character and the way her private life melds with her professional. Very entertaining although I solved it right away. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0778326659, Mass Market Paperback)

Twenty-two years ago, controversial author David Etheridge and ambitious state senator Robert McCrutchen were investigated in the death of a young coed. But a circle of secrecy guaranteed the case was never solved.

When Etheridge returns to Eugene, Oregon, McCrutchen is his grudging host—until the senator is found shot dead. Now Etheridge is back where he was two decades ago—suspected of murder. Only this time, with the cold case reopened, he's facing a double charge.

Barbara must battle the prosecution and the court of public opinion, which has already tried and convicted Etheridge for both murders. As the pressure mounts, Barbara ties the past and present together, risking her own life to preserve justice.
