Winner of the Arthur Ellis Award for Best Mystery Novel, 1998 Winner of the Dashiell Hammett Award, 1998. Arthur Beauchamp, one of Vancouver s most heralded criminal lawyers, has moved to a quiet island off the British Columbia coast. He s trying to recover from a marriage gone sour, but his retirement is interrupted by his former law partners they want Arthur to take charge of the defence trial of Jonathan O Donnell, the acting dean of the law school. O Donnell has been accused of rape by one of his students, Kimberley Martin, a smart but arrogant woman who is engaged to a rich businessman. If convicted, O Donnell understands that his career will implode; he believes that only Arthur Beauchamp can save his professional life. After much pleading, Beauchamp agrees to handle the case. He is drawn into a complex legal situation dealing with gender and sex, while his personal life takes a provocative turn as well. A courtroom drama ensues, with unpredictable twists and bizarre events. When published in Canada, Trial of Passion won the 1998 Arthur Ellis Award for Best Mystery Novel.
