It looked like a lost cause. Convicted of a brutal society murder in 1956, Lis Benedict had served a long sentence and just been released from jail. Then in a last desperate attempt to clear the Benedict name, her daughter Judy convinces All Souls Legal Cooperative to take her mother's case before the Historical Tribunal.

Sharon McCone loves a challenge but has little affection for the cold and unlikable Lis. Then, suddenly, the woman in question is dead, a vicious threat is scrawled in red paint across the front of Sharon's house, and San Francisco's number one private investigator is following a fresh trail of death that leads back to a wild debutante, a prestigious think tank, and the power politics of the 1950s—all in search of a killer who has engineered a fatal cover-up and built a brilliant career on murder.

Very good, even a little bit of history thrown in.

If you love Sue Grafton's Kinsey Milhone books you'll love these. If you read these books in order, you grow along with the main character.

This is one of my favorite early Sharon McCone mysteries. Great puzzle to solve (good luck with it!) with lots of clues.
