Greed. Control. Brainwashing. Murder. After Sheldon McAllister is charged with poisoning her wealthy husband, she seeks out Lexi Hartt, a bright young attorney who has just escaped her father's law firm in favor of solo practice. Against her better judgment, Lexi accepts the case and matches wits with the prosecutor and the detective in charge of the investigation. When another client dies in the same manner as Sheldon's husband, Lexi finds herself drawn into a web of deceit that stretches from a powerful businessman to a celebrated psychiatrist; from her own father to an enigmatic cult leader who calls himself Reverend Joy. In her race to prove Sheldon's innocence, Lexi becomes the next victim. But who is determined to keep her from learning the truth?
"Donaldson manages to weave an intricate pattern of multiple characters, action and dialog into a mesmerizing story of deceit and murder."
