Who would steal a body from its grave and why? A beautiful University of Texas student, a wild night of partying, a mysterious death, a high-stakes courtroom drama where truth is elusive and justice hard to find.
In this best-selling debut, flamboyant Fort Worth trial lawyer Cal Connors is hired by distraught parents after their daughter’s body is found beneath an inverted crucifix on the altar of a rural church. Hard-nosed in the courtroom and well-connected to the local media and judiciary, Cal sues the cemetery for millions.
Hot on Cal’s trail is Leah Rosen, a young journalist closing in on the truth and willing to put her career on the line for justice.
Defense attorney Jace Forman takes on his rival Cal and won’t rest until he finds out who could have committed this macabre crime and why.
