Ruby Bozarth, a newcomer to Rosedale, Mississippi, is also
fresh to the Mississippi Bar--and to the docket of Circuit
Judge Baylor, who taps Ruby as defense counsel in a racially
The murder of a woman from one of the town's oldest families
has Rosedale's upper crust howling for blood, and the
prosecutor is counting on Ruby's inexperience to help him
deliver a swift conviction. Ruby's client is a college
football star who has returned home after a career-ending
injury, and she is determined to build a defense that will
stick. She finds help in unexpected quarters from Suzanne, a
hard-charging attorney armed to the teeth, and Shorty, a
diner cook who knows more than he lets on.
Ruby never belonged to the country-club set, but once she
nearly married into it. As news breaks of a second murder,
Ruby's ex-fiancĂ©, Lee Greene, shows up on her doorstep--a
Southern gentleman in need of a savior. As lurid,
intertwining investigations unfold, no one in Rosedale can
be trusted, especially the twelve men and women impaneled on
the jury. They may be hiding the most incendiary secret of all.
