Synopsis: A legal thriller to rival the best in the business, ABSOLUTE CERTAINTY introduces a new voice in crime fiction. Martha 'Marty' Nickerson is a lawyer who truly loves her job. As Assistant D.A. for Barnstable County on Cape Cod, she speaks for the victims of crime 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 herself she feels a deep obligation to the murdered boy's grieving parents. Her case against Rodriguez is so solid that even public defender Harry Madigan, the champion of the Cape's underdogs, expects a conviction. And, on Memorial Day, a year after the crime, the verdict comes in: guilty as charged. Then the body of another teenager is found in disturbingly similar circumstances and Marty begins to question her victory. Her supervisor refuses to reopen such a high profile case. Why should she? They played by the rules and won big. Increasingly certain that the killer will stike again, Marty must rely on her own moral compass, legal savvy and gut instinct as she and two trusted colleagues try to unearth the horrifying secrets surrounding the murders. To serve Justice, not merely the Law.
