PART ONE



Elizabeth Jameson stared out the large window at Bartle Hall and drummed her manicured nails on the arm of her chair. Her ear ached where the handset of her phone pressed against it. Her chest rose and fell with a sigh as the attorney on the other end of the phone pontificated about what he perceived as weaknesses in her client’s position.
