The second Deborah Knott novel.
"With sass and wit, Deborah Knott, formerly a defense attorney in North Carolina's Colleton County, is putting herself firmly on the seat of power - a district judgeship. She's also making good on a campaign promise: helping to build houses for battered women. Here Deborah expects muscleaches, not the near rape of a young woman and the murder of her attacker. And Deborah certainly never expects that her hammer - complete with her fingerprints - will become a murder weapon . . ."; 5¾" - 6¾" Tall
