I'm a fan of the headstrong Barbara Holloway character and I'm happy Shelly as her associate is continuing in this series as well. Another great courtroom adventure as only Kate Wilhelm can write them. Barbara's unrelenting devotion to her client's cause takes its toll on her personal relationships and like that they're reflected in her father's observations.

And now she believes in evil, believes in the devil; he touched her and changed her. He knew her fear, and cherished it, played with it, nurtured it.
