Publisher Comments:

There is no stronger argument for the death penalty than Nicholas Balagula, the bloodthirsty West Coast crime boss who has been charged with sixty-three counts of homicide, many of them children. And now reclusive rogue journalist Frank Corso — the only non-participant invited to observe the closed court proceedings — stands uncomfortably in the center of the most crazed media circus to hit Seattle in years . . . until a personal tragedy diverts his attention. When photojournalist Meg Dougherty — once Corso's lover and still his dearest friend — comes face-to-face with a pair of cold-blooded executioners and ends up clinging weakly to life in the I.C.U., the angry lone-wolf reporter vows to make all the guilty parties pay, by his own hand if necessary. But the black river of lies, secrets, corruption, and murder surrounding both the Balagula trial and Meg's "accident" is much deeper and more dangerous than even Frank Corso anticipated. And if he wades in over his head, the undertow could drag him to his death.

Synopsis:

The only writer allowed to observe the proceedings of the high profile, tight security trial of a local thug charged with 63 counts of murder, Frank Corso is in the middle of a media circus— a real nightmare for a loner type like himself. And that’ s before he finds out that his close friend, photojournalist Meg Dougherty, is in the ICU after a run-in with a couple of hoods. It doesn’ t take long for the smart, hardened reporter to realize there’ s a mysterious connection between the sto Meg was chasing and the courtroom spectacle he’ s witnessing. Never a man to play it safe, Frank will follow a twisted trail of lies, brutality, and rage to avenge his friend and mete out his own style of justice.
