When a cop's body is found burned and decapitated, the last thing Andy Carpenter expects is for a stranger to waltz into his office and admit to the crime. For the wisecracking millionaire defense attorney suffering from "lawyer's block," the case looks like a no-brainer...until the cops pick up another suspect: Andy's lead P.I. Laurie Collins, who happens to be the love of his life. Soon Laurie's facing conviction for the grisly murder and Andy must desperately try to save her. All he had wanted was a case to sink his teeth into. Now he gets one that's a kick in the head...and the heart.
