Sasha McCandless is back!
The law firm of Prescott & Talbott is reeling from the murder of partner Ellen Mortenson --- purportedly by her estranged husband --- when a photograph of the dead woman arrives, her face Xed out and "ONE DOWN" scrawled across the bottom. Within days, a second partner is murdered, her husband also accused.
Sasha doesn't practice criminal law, so she's suspicious when her former firm asks her to represent Ellen's husband. But she soon finds herself representing both of the so-called Lady Lawyer Killers. The long hours jeopardize her relationship with Leo Connelly.
Sasha has bigger problems, though: the real killer is waging a vendetta for a past case gone wrong. And there's one more lawyer on his list.
