Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

When the angry white mob poured out of the bar on San Francisco's Geary Street and surrounded an innocent black man, Kevin Shea was the only one who tried to stop them. He failed, and now, thanks to a deceptive news photo taken during the melee, he is wanted for the murder himself-and the real culprits have threatened his life if he says a word.

As riots rage and politicians posture, Lieutenant Abe Glitsky finds himself under pressure to bring Shea in at all costs. And as respect for the law crumbles-even among those sworn to uphold it-true justice is the only thing that can prevent the death of another innocent man.

Synopsis:

In the modern, enlightened city of San Francisco, a most backwards and heinous incident occurs--an innocent black man is lynched by a group of whites. Wrongfully identified as the mob's ringleader, Kevin Shea goes into hiding as an angry city hunts him down.

Synopsis:

A brutal murder rocks a city. An innocent man stands accused. And justice is the next to die.

In a city of tolerance and hope, everything came apart. One man died at the hands of another. The next victim was killed by a mob. Now fires burn in the night, helicopters throb through the air, and politicians, lawyers and cops vie for the remnants of power...

Somewhere in the once-placid streets of San Francisco, a young man is on the run, charged by the media with a crime he didn't commit, hounded by demagogues, hunted by a desperate police department. One cop knows that Kevin Shea is innocent of a brutal racial murder. An ambitious politician will use Shea for her own ends. And a down-and-out lawyer is all that stands between Kevin Shea and an even more atrocious crime. For when there's no law left, justice is the only hope...

Synopsis:

This classic by the "New York Times" bestselling author of such courtroom dramas as "The Motive" and "The 13th Juror" returns in a newly repackaged edition. "An unusually thoughtful, exciting thriller."--"Publishers Weekly."
