"Recently widowed and adapting to the challenges of single motherhood, Mercedes Bell is a paralegal at Crenshaw, Slayne & McDonough when she meets Jack Soutane, a dashing San Francisco lawyer who has recently begun leasing office space from the firm. It's the 1980s. While the crack epidemic, homelessness and AIDS explode on the scene, Jack's law practice booms -- and the Crenshaw firm eagerly shares his bounty. Meanwhile, despite all the warning signs, Mercedes and others fall under Jack's spell. When calamity strikes and Jack succumbs to his own dark surprise, Mercedes finds herself in a race to survive and to protect her daughter. In order to do so, she must make sense of wildly inconsistent information -- and face the truths that emerge. Compelling and full of suspense, The Tolling of Mercedes Bell is a story about honesty in the face of deception, courage in the pursuit of happiness, and the unexpected places to which that quest may lead." -- From dust jacket
