Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Paul Madriani has ample reason to suspect that he's representing a guilty man. Dr. David Crone, a respected medical researcher and principal in mapping the human genome, is charged with the murder of a young colleague: twenty-six-year-old Kalista Jordan, an African American research physician whose dismembered body was found in a nearby bay. Forensic evidence links her murder with items discovered in Crone's garage. Madriani takes Crone's case, but his defense is hindered by the secrecy surrounding Crone's current research. As the trial unfolds, a scandal from Crone's past, involving his controversial use of genetic racial profiling, is revived. The murdered woman had filed charges of sexual harassment against Crone, and taken secret documents from his files. Paul is left to try to piece together a defense while Crone and his colleagues are hiding parts of the puzzle. When a key witness for the prosecution ends up dead, leaving an incriminating note behind, Crone's acquittal at trial is all but assured. Yet Paul is left with nagging questions concerning his client, doubts that are answered with a stunning revelation and a shattering climax.

Review:

"The San Diego power shortage must be affecting Paul Madriani: his latest high-profile legal suspenser is his weakest yet....The outline for a much better novel is here....What a shame that everything that would make it memorable has been left blank, right down to the jury." Kirkus Reviews

Review:

"[A]gain demonstrates the deft blend of courtroom finagling and outside discovery work that makes Martini's books so popular....The ways the defense team shores up the seemingly hopeless case...provide most of the excitement in this fast-moving thriller." Connie Fletcher, Booklist

Synopsis:

Lawyer Paul Madriani is called upon to defend a brilliant research physician — who just may be a killer — in this riveting new novel by the bestselling author of The Attorney. Madriani has ample reason to suspect he's representing a guilty man until a key witness for the prosecution dies unexpectedly, leaving an incriminating note behind. But the lawyer-sleuth soon begins to have doubts when he hits upon a potentially damning loose end.

Synopsis:

"Lean, speedy and packing a wallop of a plot twist at the end, the latest Paul Madriani legal thriller shows why Martini remains one of the form's most popular practitioners....Fans will happily overlook the frequently awkward, listless prose — the most glaring drawback in what is otherwise one of Martini's best novels to date." Publishers Weekly

Synopsis:

The Attorney, which marked the return of Steve Martini's lawyer-sleuth Paul Madriani, was hailed for its "well-observed courtroom maneuverings" (The Christian Science Monitor) and "crisp dialogue and tart observations" (Publishers Weekly). Now Martini delivers the most daunting capital case of Madriani's career.

Paul Madriani has ample reason to suspect he's representing a guilty man. Dr. David Crone, a respected medical researcher and principal in mapping the human genome, is charged with the murder of a young colleague: twenty-six-year-old Kalista Jordan, an African-American research physician whose body washed up on a beach in San Diego Bay. Forensic evidence links her murder with material in Crone's garage. Crone had both opportunity and motive: Kalista had recently ended their affair, and may have been deserting him professionally as well, moving on to a rival genetic research facility. However, when a key witness for the prosecution dies unexpectedly, leaving an incriminating note behind, Crone's innocence seems confirmed-until Madriani hits upon a potentially damning loose end.
