The Internet chat room was a place where anything could be
said, any identity assumed. A place where someone known only
as the Black Knight seduced, lured . . . then killed.
Attorney Kate Logan needs a high-profile case to jump-start
her fledgling private D.C. practice. So when she's asked to
represent the prime suspect in the Molly Buchanan murder,
the opportunity seems too good to pass up.
Two years earlier, Todd Buchanan, son of a powerful
Washington family, fled the country in a desperate attempt
to avoid being arrested for his wife's murder. Now he wants
to clear his name -- and he wants Kate to do it. But the
case comes with a price -- for the victim is the sister of
detective Mitch Calhoon, the new man in Kate's life. Now
Kate is faced with a harrowing choice.
Convinced a miscarriage of justice has occurred, she accepts
the case and enters the powerful corridors of the nation's
capital, where secrets remain hidden at all costs -- even if
it means murder. But time is running out and the moment of
truth has arrived . . .
