Description
The New York Times-bestselling author of Suspicion of Innocence brings her prodigious legal experience and storytelling gifts to this riveting thriller about a disgraced US attorney determined to prove his innocence and get justice Dan Galindo was a highly respected US attorney until a single lapse in judgment cost him everything. A year ago, he refused to put a lying witness on the stand. As a result, a drug kingpin walked, earning Galindo the eternal wrath of the DEA. In the aftermath, his plummy position with Miami's federal prosecutor's office went south, along with his marriage. He's barely scraping by as a lawyer in a rundown office when opportunity comes knocking. Galindo's ex-brother-in-law, a music promoter, wants him to defend a gorgeous rock singer accused of assaulting a police officer. Accepting the case, Galindo is unwittingly drawn into a money laundering scheme and sting operation - involving corrupt cops and a DEA agent with a blood score to settle - in which no one can be trusted. But when he becomes the prime suspect in a high-profile murder, Galindo suddenly finds himself scrambling to prove his innocence in a world where the law is subverted and justice doesn't always prevail.
