What about the son frozen out of his will? Or his wife's political enemies? And what about Ellen Crease herself?Soon it becomes clear that a deadly plot of murder, blackmail, passion, and double cross is unfolding around Judge Richard Quinn.  And unless he breaks the rules, justice will not only be blind, it will be the final victim.
