EXCELLENT! Kinsey Millhone gets the David Barney case by default -- the previous PI dies of a heart attack two weeks before the trial. This is one twisted convoluted mystery. David is accused of murdering his estranged wife. He, of course, pleads innocent (hence the title). The characters include the wife, wife's twin sister, the wife's best friend and her daughter, the wife's ex-boss and his wife, and the ex-husband and his new wife. Yeah a boat load of possible suspects. Kinsey is up to her eyeballs in alibi's and evidence. She's lied to repeatedly and it takes her awhile to figure out who and why. As usual she gets too close to the truth and puts herself in danger. A great conclusion with a rather surprising ending.
