Joanne's story turns to Judge Blackwell's murder, Joanne working alongside the chief police investigator, Detective Alex Emanuel. Joanne and Alex find that there are many potential suspects, including an ex-con who Judge Blackwell sentenced years earlier and with who she later had a very close association, a troubled youth who she let stay in her coach house, two grown daughters with who she had a dysfunctional relationship, a lawyer who she seemed to be "paying off", and the family of the victim of her last case who were unhappy with her light sentencing. Joanne and Alex also discover that Judge Blackwell was keeping some secrets which may be key to solving the murder.
