Synopsis: Set in Alabama, society lawyer Adam Shaw is married to the beautiful Kris Ann who has bound him to a life he despises and her father, Roland Cade, his senior partner and rival. When Shaw discovers Lydia Cantwell (a prominent society woman and close friend of Kris Ann and Cade) brutally murdered, his life takes on a new focus as he battles to clear Henry Cantwell of the charge of murder. In doing so, he digs up secrets from Lydia's past that will endanger his career, his marriage and his own well-being. It becomes increasingly evident that Lydia's death is inextricably linked to Shaw's own past and future.
From the Inside Flap:
The outside man is society lawyer Adam Shaw. A northerner in a southern town jealous of its secrets, he finds the dead body of his best friend's wealthy wife -- and his friend is missing.
In a world where wealthy people will stop at nothing to maintain a genteel image, Shaw must gamble his career, his marriage, and his very life in a passionate quest for the real murderer -- and learn the shocking truth about his own past and future . . . .
"A classic detective story." -- The New York Times Book Review
