In particular that he has an illegitimate daughter, Elaine, who never knew her father. Now she never will. Elaine has been murdered. The only suspect is a hopeless heroin addict, and Dismas Hardy - a close friend of Glitsky's - agrees to defend the alleged killer when the DA calls for the death penalty. Thrust into a bitter collaboration with Glitsky, a man confronting uncharted regions of his heart, Hardy battles to win a fair trial for Burgess, and finds himself entering a world of corruption and cold-blooded murder.Hide synopsis

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!
