Philadelphia lawyer Rita Morrono is guilted into defending her boyfriend’s father, Federal Judge Fiske Hamilton, in a sexual harassment case when the woman is gruesomely murdered and the judge is the only suspect. Reluctant to pursue the criminal case, Rita is coerced to continue but she becomes committed when her father is injured and his assistant killed in a break in. With the aid of her three elderly poker buddies Rita takes the investigation in to her own hands and filters through a variety of plausible red herrings to ferret out the killer. Can easily be read out of order -- not particularly tied to the first two titles in the series. Lots of sense of place (Philadelphia).
