Publisher Comments:

“Heart-stopping intensity.”

—San Francisco Chronicle

 

“Meltzer has come up with a gem of a plot….It breezes along in high gear….[A] highly recommended suspenser.”

—Chicago Tribune

 

Dead Even, the second electrifying thriller from #1 New York Times bestselling author Brad Meltzer (The Tenth Justice) poses the blood-chilling question: How far would you go to save the one you love? Meltzer, who occupies an honored place among the top names in the thriller profession—the legal thriller and Washington D.C. intrigue specialists (Grisham, Baldacci, Martini, Turow, Lescroart) as well as Patterson, Kellerman, Deaver, and other masters of mainstream suspense—comes back strong with Dead Even, as adversarial husband and wife lawyers battle in the courtroom, each knowing that the others very life depends on the verdict.

Synopsis:

Lawyer Sara Tate is in danger of losing her new job with the Manhattan District Attorney's Office if she doesn't get noticed fast. Smart and tough—a fighter who makes things happen—she grabs a high-profile burglary case that could make her career. There are two problems: Sara's husband, Jared, is the attorney for the defense . . . and she's been warned that if she does not get a conviction, Jared will be killed. What she doesn't know is that her husband has received a similar threat. Unless his client walks, Sara's life is over.

Unaware of the stakes on the other side and forced to keep their secrets from each other, husband and wife become bitter adversaries, locked in a vicious head-to-head battle in the courtroom and at home. And there can be no victor in this struggle.

No matter who wins . . . someone dies.
