Now everything will ride on her ability to hold herself together long enough to put the accused away forever.

Having read "Last Witness", I was familiar enough with the plot of this story and its ending. Didn't read but would recommend this book as well as the follow-up (above) to anyone who likes an action-packed legal-content book.
