A woman Marc Kadella has known since junior high school has returned to the Twin Cities after a twenty-year absence. Unknown to Marc she has left a trail of dead husbands and destroyed families in her wake. Wealthy, successful families that she has left almost impoverished while using her charms on the older husbands to inherit everything upon their deaths. Her most recent conquest was the founder of a well-known, successful, St. Paul based grocery store chain, Sutherland's. The book starts out with the funeral of the husband and Mackenzie, Marc's high school friend, reminiscing about her prior dead husbands. Like her three previous dead husbands, William Sutherland has died from a sudden, massive heart attack. At the reading of the Will, his three grown, mostly useless, children find out they have been all but disinherited, just like the others. Only this time the family has a good friend who is a St Paul detective who will eventually dig up, literally, enough evidence to have her indicted. Marc Kadella meets up with Mackenzie at a high school reunion. After confessing the fact that they each had a crush on the other while in school together, feelings they never acted on, they begin a personal relationship. When she is indicted for William Sutherland's death, Marc will take her case and defend her.

A serial killer is on the loose in Minneapolis and the head of the investigation, Minneapolis police Lt. Jake Waschke, is feeling the pressure to find him. To make matters worse, the killer strikes again, this time across the river in St. Paul, and his victim is the daughter of a prominent politician. Just when the investigation seems to be going nowhere, the police catch a break when the killer strikes yet again, except this time there is a witness who gets the police, including Jake Waschke chasing the killer through the streets of Minneapolis. During the chase Jake gets a good look at him and realizes his problems are only beginning when he recognizes the man and realizes he must do whatever is necessary to protect him. A patsy is found and an arrest is made. The patsy's fate is placed in the hands of criminal defense lawyer, Marc Kadella, when the brother of the accused turns out to be a former client of Marc's. The case has heat and publicity far beyond anything Marc has ever dealt with and he tries to beg off. He knows he is over his head with a case of this magnitude and also realizes it could destroy his practice and drive him into bankruptcy. The brother convinces Marc to take the case playing on their past relationship, guaranteeing payment of his fees and Marc's own belief that the man is innocent. As the case progresses, Marc, aided in the investigation by a stunningly beautiful private investigator, becomes more and more convinced his client is being framed. But, unless he can uncover who is framing him and, more importantly, why, an innocent man is going to take a very serious fall, Marc will be helpless to prevent it. The Key to Justice is a work of fiction that the author undertook to give a more realistic view of the practice of law and what a lawyer goes through than is usually found in most legal thrillers. It is not an easy way to make a living but it can be very rewarding though not always easy on the soul and the lawyer's private life. Whether the lawyer practices on his or her own, in a small firm or, maybe especially, a large firm to which you almost become enslaved, though well compensated, it can be a demanding, all-consuming, pressure-filled way to make a living.
