Overview

In this riveting new novel in the New York Times bestselling series, defense attorney Paul Madriani uncovers a morass of double-dealing and murder that leads him to the very highest levels of American political power

When a friend, Alex Ives, is implicated in a deadly motor collision on a deserted Southern California highway, Paul Madriani joins a case as tangled as any he's ever taken. Alex swears he had only one drink the night of the crash, but he also can't remember the events of the evening beyond the fact that he was to meet a sexy, mysterious woman at an elegant house party. The next morning he woke up in the hospital in police custody, charged with drunk driving and manslaughter. When Paul discovers that Alex knew the deceased, a connected, hard-charging Washington, D.C., lawyer named Olinda Serna, Madriani realizes the potential penalties for his client could include a death sentence.

Across the country in Washington, D.C., attorney Cletus Proffit learns that his law firm nemesis, Ms. Serna, has died in California. Proffit knows that Serna protected dangerous secrets involving players moving in the highest reaches of national politics, and he will go to any lengths to ensure that that knowledge has died with her. Senator Maya Grimes also hears of the fatal crash, and begins crafting her own web of deceit to suffocate anything that might come back to bite her. In the meantime, a vicious, highly effective mercenary a woman whose calling card is the ability to kill her victims in horrifying, utterly untraceable accidents begins to panic when she gets word of Serna's death in Southern California and the manner in which it occurred.

Now the only way to save a young man from imprisonment is for Madriani, his partner, Harry Hinds, and investigator Herman Diggs to uncover the corruption and dark deeds that surround Ms. Serna's friends and find her killer before he or she can strike again."

In bestseller Martini’s busy 13th Paul Madriani novel (after 2011’s Trader of Secrets), the California lawyer takes on the seemingly hopeless case of reporter Alex Ives, who’s accused of DUI and causing the car crash that killed high-powered Washington, D.C., attorney Olinda Serna. Madriani and his team—partner Harry Hinds and investigator Herman Diggs—follow clues that suggest the accident was staged and Ives was the victim of a honey trap. Then the people who may have answers start dying, and Ives, Madriani, and his colleagues become targets. A plethora of complications include Serna’s powerful boss, Cletus Proffit, trying to contain fallout from her death; a mysterious man with an eagle-head cane pulling congressional strings; and the machinations of Lang-Jian Cheng, the head of China’s foreign intelligence unit. Martini expertly pulls all the threads together as Madriani navigates an assortment of physical and professional challenges. Agent: Esther Newberg, ICM. (May)
