Summary
Matthew Hope is a divorce lawyer in the town of Calusa, Florida, where the Gulf waters are warm and the women on the beach topless. One such woman, Michelle Benois Harper--a striking beauty with cascading black hair--enters Matthew's office revealing swollen eyes and a bruised and battered body. After making a statement with the cops saying her husband did it, her body is found on the beach, burned beyond recognition. George N. Harper is a hulking man with pockmarks, flaring nostrils, and rheumy eyes--the ugliest accused man Matthew has ever seen. But something's not quite right about the case--Harper loved his wife. Yet the cops and lawyers are ready to hang the man who could extinguish such a beautiful woman, and it's up to Matthew to prove his innocence.--Amazon.com
