(From the publisher):
Attorney K.C. Carlisle lives and works as a storefront lawyer in an exclusive northern California seaside city. She has little respect for her cousin Kenneth, a corporate lawyer running for political office.
When Kenneth is arrested on a murder charge and other family members are implicated, K.C. plunges into a search for the killer -- even though the investigation may destroy her late father's good reputation. The courageous woman faces down some ghosts in her past as she attempts to bring the real criminal to justice.
