No one could be more surprised than Ike Goldman, a seventy-eight-year-old retired contract law professor at Columbia, when he discovers that the much younger woman whom he keeps from suicide on the George Washington Bridge opens a new world of love for him. Nor could he be more shocked than when she is arrested for the murder of her ex-husband. Has Ike's love for this woman whom he has known for only six weeks blinded him to the part of her that could have led to murder? Was the abuse that Elizabeth suffered at her ex-husband's hands enough to drive even this gentle, deeply religious woman to a desperate act? Is her show of faith only a mask for revenge? In the swirling thrust and parry of her trial, Ike is forced to examine his hopes, his beliefs, and his love for the woman whose life hangs in the balance. Howard Fast's newest novel combines the suspense of great courtroom drama with the ineffable connection between a man and a woman.
