Date rape didn't exist in 1962. But thirty years after Karen Kern's life fell apart on a cold New York night, her nemesis returns, hogging the limelight on prime-time TV. Bob, the ex-Harvard man with the fatal charm, is now Senator Robert Drayton Willmont riding high in the polls and running for President. But this is no longer 1962, and times have changed...GUILT BY ASSOCIATION is a searing novel or remarkably sustained pace and power. Brilliantly combining elements of political thriller, courtroom drama and heart-rending emotional narrative, it presents an unforgettable and throught-provoking indictment of sexual responsibility in a world where justice is often just another victim.
