Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Ricardo Arias is found dead, the gun still wedged in his mouth. It looks like suicide, but the physical evidence strongly suggests murder. The police investigation uncovers an estranged wife, Terri Peralta; an ugly custody battle over their six-year-old daughter, Elena; heated charges of child abuse; and a murder suspect: San Francisco defense attorney Christopher Paget.

Paget has motive--it's his son accused of abusing Elena, his political plans for the future put at risk by the dead man's accusations, and his alibi that is dangerously threadbare.

And the shocking revelations that threaten to explode in the courtroom may remain hidden forever...by Chris Paget's refusal to testify on his own behalf...by Elena's tangled loyalties...and by dark secrets that some desperately wish to keep silent....

Synopsis:

In San Francisco, a dead man is found amid evidence that might confirm suicide but strongly suggests murder. The police investigation uncovers a storm of emotion and conflict that surrounded the victim in the last months of his life. The prime murder suspect is a high-profile defense attorney--and the new lover of victim's estranged wife. Now, defense attorney becomes defendent in this riveting new courtroom drama from the author of the national bestseller Degree of Guilt.
