Summary (From the publisher):

Martha "Marty" Nickerson is a lwayer who truly loves her job. As an assistant D.A. for Massachusetts's Barnstable County, which includes all the small towns in Cape Cod, she speaks for the victims of crime and their families and sees the system as a means for doing right.

The case of Manuel Rodriguez is a prime example. Rodriguez is accused of brutally murdering a college student, a kind young man who had a bright future. Marty has worked hard on this case; as the mother of a teenage son, she identifies with the murdered boy's grieving parents. Her case against Rodriguez is so solid that even the public defender Harry Madigan-the champion of the Cape's underdogs-expects a conviction. And, on Memorial Day exactly a year after the crime, the verdict comes in: guilty as charged. Justice prevails.

Then, with Rodriguez behind bars, anothe body turns up in disturbingly similiar circumstances. Did Marty and her colleagues target the wrong man? Her supervisor-Geraldine Schilling, who aspires to be the county's first female D.A.-refuses to reopen such a high-profile case. Why should she? The prosecutors played by the rules and won big. But Marty fears that the real killer will strike again.

With her career on the line and lives at stake, Marty must rely on her own moral compass, legal savvy, and gut instinct as she matches wits with a twisted killer. The system itself is on trial as Marty tries to serve Justice, not merely the Law.

Only an author with years of courtroom experience could add such riveting authenticity to a novel that asks important questions and provides surprising answers. Rose Connor's "Absolute Certainty" introduces a new crime-writing star.
