Defending an innocent young man, defense attorney Paul Madriani uncovers a morass of corruption and greed that leads to the highest levels of political power in this electrifying tale of suspense from New York Times bestselling author Steve Martini.
One of the most successful lawyers in the country, Olinda Serna is a master at managing money as well as her influential clients. After years of fierce combat in the political trenches, Serna knows all the dirty secrets, where the bodies are buried, and how deeply they are stacked. When she's killed in a roadside crash in the high desert of Southern California, powerful heads in Washington begin to panic, worried that their secrets may not be safe anymore.
Alex Ives, a friend of Paul Madriani's daughter, is accused of vehicular manslaughter in Serna's death. Ives claims he had only one drink on the night of the accident, yet he can't remember anything between the time he left for a party north of San Diego and the moment he woke up in a hospital the next morning. He's still dazed and a little bruised, but also obviously very afraid. After all, a woman is dead, and he's sure he didn't kill her.
To save an innocent young man's life, the brilliant defense attorney must uncover everything he can about Serna and her clients--no matter how unsavory--a search that will lead him into a vortex of corruption, and at its center, a devious killer poised to 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)
