‘You must watch your back when somebody you trust steps behind you.’
Hugh Freyl is the most respected lawyer in Springfield, Illinois. That he is blind only enhances his reputation: justice should be blind. And yet late one night, in the library of his law firm, he is savagely beaten to death.
There is just one obvious suspect: David Marion, a convicted killer from the wrong side of the tracks. Hugh himself secured David’s release from a brutal maximum security penitentiary. David has never seemed grateful.
But how much – or how little – does it take to make a man kill?
