This was a fascinating book for numerous reasons, but what makes it truly unique is the way it's constructed. Lee White, a criminal defense attorney, narrates the story of her defense of a career con man, charged with strangling to death his latest mark. That story is intriguing in itself, with many unexpected twists. But every other chapter is written in third person, describing Lee's life from birth, with all the elements of family and romantic relationships that have caused her to become the person she is today.

Two parallel stories -- yet no feeling of division as you read them. I am very impressed by the fact that Susan Isaacs was able to pull this off so seamlessly.
