Smoking handbag
15 March 2015 | by See all my reviews

Some references to the new District Attorney and his quest for re- election are more than present when the son of a powerful family whose father and brothers have run and won political office is arrested for a murder that was covered up by the World Trade Center attack. Stevie Ray Dallimore is the man charged and he can bring a lot of bad things down on Fred Dalton Thompson.

Two kids who lift some smokes out of a convenience store and then discover a skeleton in a vacant lot start the whole thing off. It's a woman with all the bones present except for one hand severed off. That hand was found in the rubble of the Trade Center and used to identify the victim as someone killed in the attack. Looks like it was conveniently left there to cover up a different crime.

Dallimore and the deceased were having an affair as well and that's beyond doubt.

Elizabeth Rohm is the one who discovers the real truth. And it all has to do with the handbag that had the deceased's ID in it which was discovered with said hand.

She really embarrasses both cops and DA's office with this one.
