It looked like a lost cause. Convicted of a brutal society murder in 1956, Lis Benedict had served a long sentence and just been released from jail. Then in a last desperate attempt to clear the Benedict name, her daughter Judy convinces All Souls Legal Cooperative to take her mother's case before the Historical Tribunal. Sharon McCone loves a challenge but has little affection for the cold and unlikable Lis. Then, suddenly, the woman in question is dead, a vicious threat is scrawled in red paint across the front of Sharon’s house, and San Francisco’s number one private investigator is following a fresh trail of death that leads back to a wild debutante, a prestigious think tank, and the power politics of the 1950s—all in search of a killer who has engineered a fatal cover-up and built a brilliant career on murder.
“The thirteenth Sharon McCone mystery brings good luck to readers as Muller’s veteran San Francisco PI explores crimes of passion and politics as they were played out in the Bay Area during the pre-Beat 1950s…Vintage Muller.”—Publishers Weekly
