When a glamorous, aggressive, and widely disliked L.A. lawyer is found with her tongue cut out, the leading suspect is Debra Laslow, a defense attorney who had the bad luck to exchange sharp words with the victim on the night of her murder.
The daughter of an Orthodox rabbi, Debra has always tread a fine line between her moral beliefs and the dictates of her job. Now she is juggling being the subject of police scrutiny while handling a case already giving her sleepless nights—defending a doctor charged with date-raping his receptionist. The Talmud offers good advice on how to handle the two cases: uncover the truth. But it doesn’t allay her fears. Because Debra realizes that if she continues to defend her client, she may be the next victim of a killer who is watching her every move.
