No-nonsense attorney Helen West possesses a rare combination of jaded pragmatism and well-guarded vulnerability. Yet, rape is a crime that haunts her--particularly her latest case where all the evidence all points to D. S. Ryan, the fellow police officer and best friend of her lover, Superintendent Geoffrey Bailey. But slowly, as West and Bailey delve into this seemingly open-and-shut crime, there emerges a man whose cold-blooded intuition about women guarantees him a ready welcome--and rape, even murder, without a trace.
