This book emits mixed feelings. A leading citizen is arrested and brought to trial for supposedly killing his"girlfriend". An ex newspaper reporter, and now private investigator, Steve Harlan is aiding the lawyer handling the defense. A single mother, Delores Green, is dead; and the coroner or well as the rest of the town wonder if John Lattimore killed Delores or if too much alcohol killed Delores. Poor Delores has over 200 bruises on her body, and no one can determine if the bruises happened prior to death or after death. Hoover adds to this picture a teen-age son who knows more than has been revealed. The majority of the book deals with exposing the inequality of justice based on personal wealth. This emphasis runs too heavy, and clouds the issue and makes the story off beat.
