Jacobs, Jonnie - 2nd in Kali O'Brien series

Attorney Kali O'Brien took the fast track to a prestigious San Francisco law firm but burned out and wound up back in her rural California hometown, working on ho-hum wills and trusts. She's happy enough, but then a career-making, high-profile case comes along. Wes Harding, an old acquaintance, is accused of brutally killing Lisa Harding and her five-year-old daughter. The town is up in arms, the prosecutor is set to ask for the death penalty, and Wes is singularly uncooperative as Kali tries to construct his defense. Convinced that Wes is covering up for the real murderer, Kali continues to investigate, setting up a fine climax in which she confronts the killer.

Of her two series, I definitely prefer this one. Good suspense, well done plot.
