Synopses & Reviews
Attorney and client, they broke the first law: never fall in love.
With evidence missing and key witnesses changing their stories, the battle for her dead husband's fortune is turning ugly. Someone is out to get her, and only one of the country's shrewdest, most battle-hardened lawyers can save her. If he can trust her.
He's a rising star in a powerhouse law firm. Everything he ever dreamed of and sweated for now means nothing to him. He's become Elizabeth Daren's lover-and made her enemies his own. It's a choice the could take him down...and the only one that matters.
With all the power and authenticity of The Firm and the Client, Federal Judge and former prosecutor William Coughlin dazzles us with In the Presence of Enemies-the smash sequel to his best-selling courtroom drama Shadow of a Doubt-and his toughest, most absorbing novel yet!
