The accused, Damon Tucker, believes that the police are setting him up and is outraged with his incarceration. Arch must prove Damon's innocence and so looks into the killing.

After checking Damon's story, Arch is able to verify the things Damon
A fast pace, but total airport-read fluff - when your chapters don't even reach a page in length, you know you're padding.

This is a very good read by Heilbrun. Enjoyed the characters and the interplay between and among them. The main character can't take too many more novels because of the damage done to him in this one, but there are real possibilities with a return engagement in a second book because many things are left unfinished. A good read.
