If I'm Dead is not a long story, but it is packed with
action and description of case evidence. It is one of the stories
about Los Angeles Assistant District Attorney Rachael Knight. Rachael
is a prosecutor from the special cases division. This is a special
case, all right. She has what she believes is a murder, but there
is no body, no evidence to speak of, though she has the name of
the victim and the name of her killer. All she knows for certain
is that Melissa Hildegard is missing and she left a diary that stated
that if anyone read that diary, it was because her husband, Saul
Hildegard, had killed her.
Forensics had found one tiny drop of blood in Melissa's SUV, Melissa's
blood, and evidence that a cleanser had been used on the inside
of the SUV. No murder weapon had been found. A bloody scarf had
been found along with a suitcase that matched the set Melissa owned.
It wasn't much to go on, but there was a motive, a multimillion
dollar motive. There was a prenuptial agreement that left Saul out
in the cold if there was a divorce. Could Rachel make the murder
charge stick? She would do her best.
The court battle is quite interesting, under the circumstances.
There are surprises along the way. There is the problem of Rachael's
colorful language, profanity by another name. Rachael is well known
for that, and one would have to change her personality to remove
it. The other characters are equally believable. The plot is an
attention grabber, and that plot will not be resolved until the
very end. Even Rachael doesn't know how it will end. So, listen
to If I'm Dead, and enjoy.
