Known for its friendly, peaceful atmosphere, the small town of Mountain Park zealously guards its enviable reputation. Close enough to the city for easy accessibility, yet far enough away not to be tainted by its problems, it is home to three attorneys and a host of other folks who almost never consider living anyplace else.
The assault that nearly ends Kimberly Larson’s life and the trial that follows it are so out of the ordinary that they make front page news—even in the city. But when it’s over, the town’s residents accept the jury’s verdict, and life returns to normal. No one—least of all the attorneys—expects what happens later. And no one—least of all the attorneys—expects the crime that follows to threaten three young lives. Nor do they expect it to rip apart an almost perfect marriage.
