Dead in the Water ~~ Stuart Woods




Description
Dead in the Water by Stuart Woods
A DROP IN THE OCEAN

Stone Barrington only wants a winter getaway from the chill of New York in the beautiful, tropical Caribbean paradise of St. Mark's. But what the lawyer and ex-cop gets instead is the chance to defend Allison Manning. The beautiful young woman stands accused of killing her rich husband on board their luxurious yacht and then burying him at sea.

Stone isn't exactly conversant with the island country's law, but this much is clear to him. Allison is being railroaded by the perverse sense or justice of a prosecutor who will do anything to stay in office. Donning the robe and wig of a British barrister Stone does everything he can to save Allison - from publicizing the case all over the American press to conducting the kind of smart, tough investigation that money can't buy. Just when he has the jury in the palm of his hands a shocking reversal of fortune changes everything. And what was once a sure thing begins to look a lot like a death sentence.
