Summary
Monty Collins is a public defender who would like to represent an upstanding character for a change. A priest with something to hide isn't exactly what he was looking for, but when Father Brennan Burke is implicated in the strange murder of a young woman, Monty takes the case. Monty is forced to play private detective as he travels into his client's past. While evidence and coincidence pile up, leading to a revelation neither Monty nor the reader see coming.
