Overview

Losing the trial of his life could mean losing everything.

When a young reporter is found dead and a prominent Philadelphia businessman is accused of her murder, Mick McFarland finds himself involved in the case of his life. The defendant, David Hanson, is Mick's best friend, and the victim, a TV news reporter, had reached out to Mick for legal help only hours before her death.

Mick's played both sides of Philadelphia's courtrooms. As a top-shelf defense attorney and former prosecutor, he knows all the tricks of the trade. And he'll need every one of them to win.

But as the trial progresses, he's disturbed by developments that confirm his deepest fears. This trial, one that already hits too close to home, may jeopardize his firm, his family--everything. Now Mick's only way out is to mastermind the most brilliant defense he's ever spun, one that may cross every legal and moral boundary.

Defense attorney and former DA Mick McFarland, the narrator of lawyer Myerss impressive debut, takes on the case of a close law school friend, David Hanson, the general counsel of a family-owned Fortune 500 company. David has been arrested for pushing Jennifer Yamura, an up-and-coming Philadelphia reporter who just broke a major police corruption story, down the stairs to her basement, where she was found lying dead. An anonymous phone call alerted the police, who picked up David fleeing from the victims house. That it appears to be an open-and-shut case isnt Micks only problem. Devin Walker, the prosecutor, is pursuing a conviction largely because he and Mick were archrivals and enemies back in Micks days as a DA. Glimpses of Micks puzzling and intense relationship with his ex-convict brother, as well as rifts in Micks marriage, provide counterpoint to the fascinating legal maneuvering in the courtroom. The gripping plot builds to an ending thats a complete shocker. Agent: Cynthia Manson, Cynthia Manson Literary Agency. (Apr.)
