It's a long hot summer for the small law firm of Robinovitch, Barr, Barr, and Tchobanian. Leon Robinovitch is defending an anti-Semitic peddler of hate literature; Chuck Tchobanian is representing a pornography salesman; and Carrie Barr, fresh from her successful defence of a drifter charged as the notorious Midnight Strangler, takes on the case of a suave hit man. But Carrie's new client is proving to be far more dangerous--and alluring--than she could have imagined. Soon she finds herself drawn into a web of terror involving a rogue police operation, a ruthless drug lord, and a series of brutal murders that threatens to tear the law firm apart. Meanwhile, the Midnight Strangler is still at large. Has he chosen Carrie as his next victim?
