A black maid working late in a downtown office building says she was attacked and raped. The accused tells a preposterous story — that the woman appeared at his office door, ripped off her own clothes, clawed her own flesh, and began to scream "rape" before he knew what was going on; that for some unknown reason, he has been framed. A prosecutor's dream. A defense attorney's nightmare. For Mark Blackwell, the dream and the nightmare will be merged in the most difficult case of his career. For he has just been elected District Attorney of this old, south Texas city. And the young man accused of rape is his own son. Now District Attorney Blackwell can "fade the heat" away from his son — or away from himself. If his son gets off easy, it will end Blackwell's career. If his son goes to prison, even if he's guilty, his already-strained family will never survive. Most chilling of all is the question Blackwell keeps hidden even from his wife who believes in David's innocence with a mother's perfect faith. Dos he really believe his son's story? And if his son is innocent, it can only mean that he himself is the target of a frame-up.that he has enemies he has never even dreamed of, enemies whose vile motives he has not yet begun to fathom.
