A NEW YORK TIMES EDITORS' CHOICE
Kevin Moore, once a high-flying Virginia attorney, hits rock bottom after a tumultuous summer leaves him disbarred and separated from his wife. Short on cash and looking for work, he lands in the middle of nowhere with a job at SUBstitution, the world's saddest sandwich shop. His closest confidants: a rambunctious rescue puppy and the twenty-year-old computer whiz manning the restaurant counter beside him.
Kevin's determined to set his life right again, but the troubles keep coming, including a visit from a mysterious stranger who wanders into the shop armed with a threatening "invitation" to join a multimillion-dollar scam. Before long, Kevin will need every bit of his legal savvy just to stay out of prison.
In The Substitution Order, Martin Clark--hailed by Entertainment Weekly as "hands down our best legal-thriller writer"--takes readers on a remarkable tour of the law's tricks and hidden trapdoors and delivers a wildly entertaining novel that will keep you guessing and rooting for its tenacious hero until the very last page.
