A sensational trial. Dark motives. Deadly secrets.
Arrogant and abusive Judge Samuel Chesterfield is murdered in his chambers during a sensational wrongful-death trial brought against a prominent abortionist. Only the four trial lawyers had access.
Edward Mead, 77-year-old distinguished law professor, acts as special prosecutor. Still brilliant but struggling with the ravages of age and the recent death of his wife, Mead is thrust headlong into a lethal maelstrom of crime and corruption that threatens to submerge his mind and body, with the slightest misstep costing his life.
Special Agent Sarah Riehl sees the case as her one chance to shatter the glass ceiling that has suffocated her career at the FBI. Her impetuous drive to succeed recklessly propels her on a deadly gambit where the hunter becomes the prey.
This fast-paced legal thriller ripped from today’s headlines combines the action and suspense of John Grisham with the classic twists and turns of an Agatha Christie locked room murder mystery, leaving the reader breathlessly guessing until the final page.
