A novel by

A lawyer scrambles to save a judge-killing hooker from the gallows

No women have been hanged in San Verdo since 1921, but after four decades it looks like that's about to change. Helen Pilasky is far from a sympathetic defendant. She's a known prostitute, and there is strong evidence that she murdered Judge Alexander Knowton, a supreme court justice beloved statewide. More than one hundred thousand people live in San Verdo, and nearly all of them want Helen Pilasky's neck. It is Blake Eddyman's job to save her.

A well-off lawyer whose once promising career has stalled, Blake is caught between his ambition and his fear of failure. Saving Helen seems impossible, but he can't refuse the job. She faces a charge of murder in the first degree. If convicted, the sentence is automatic. Only Blake stands between this enigmatic young woman and the hangman.

This ebook features an illustrated biography of Howard Fast including rare photos from the author's estate.
