    A murder on Cape Cod. A rape in Palm Beach. All they have in common is the presence of one of America"s most beloved and influential families. But nobody is asking questions. Not the police. Not the prosecutors. And certainly not George Becket, a young lawyer in the Cape & Islands district attorney"s office. George has always lived at the edge of power. He wasn"t born to privilege, but he understands how it works and has benefitted from it in ways he doesn"t like to admit. Now, an investigation brings him deep inside the world of the truly wealthy -- and shows him what a perilous place it is.
