Abe Glitsky in love and in trouble. Jul 21, 2010
Abe's life is in a turmoil--his unacknowleged but much loved illegitimate daughter has been murdered, and the junkie found bending over her body seems to be admitting he did it. But Dismas Hardy is pulled into the case for the defense at the behest of his friend Jeff Elliot's wife, the supposed culprit's sister. The cops aren't interested--they have their man, right? And the DA decides this is the perfect unbreakable case to show how tough on crime she really is--asking for the unthinkable in liberal San Francisco, the death penalty. While Abe is starting to recover from his catatonic lovelife after the death of his wife, discovering new joy with Treya, the friend and paralegal of his dead daughter, his health is undermined and his heart gives out from all the stress of bad things happening around him. If you like legal/cop thrillers, with truly loveable characters, you will like this book!
