A prominent Arkansas politico and state senator is murdered, and the babbling, incoherent man accused of the crime has ironclad insanity plea written all over him. Everyone, including Gideon Page, the public defender, thinks this case is nailed shut.
But Gideon discovers that when sanity is on trial and sex is the secret weapon, betrayal reduces the odds of finding the truth to zero. All the suspects look guilty, and even the innocent need an airtight alibi - when a simple case of puppy love becomes a fatal affair to remember.
This is #1 in A Gideon Page Mystery.
