Shenandoah Coleman, a newspaper reporter, who used to like in Round Rock as a child returns to cover the trial of a childhood friend Dr Kate Marlow. Dr Kate was charged with the murder of Lillian Johnson who was found slumped in her wheelchair with a syringe lying close by.
Although Kate and Shenandoah come from different backgrounds they became firm friends. It is a murder mystery and an intriguing one at that. The story whilst covering the murder also follows Shenandoeh's love story as she becomes involved with Glassock, a widow with a young son. I wasn't prepared for the outcome of the trial and subsequent reveal which was surprising. A good read which kept me interested in the characters it introduced.
