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.

When Ike Goldman, a seventy-eight-year-old retired law professor at Columbia University, dissuades a much younger woman from jumping off the George Washington Bridge, he never suspects that his selfless action will lead to love. Nor does he suspect that the sensitive and caring woman whom he saved from herself will be accused of murdering her abusive ex-husband.
Ike cannot believe that Elizabeth could be capable of such an act, but he has known her for only six weeks and cannot stop the questions that hound him. Was the abuse that Elizabeth suffered during her eight-year marriage enough to drive her to murder? Could Ike's love for her blind him to a dark side of her personality? Does her refuge in her Catholic faith mask a dreadful vengeance?
In the swirling thrust and parry of Elizabeth's trial, Ike is forced to examine his hopes, his beliefs, and his love for a woman whose life hangs in the balance.
