This propulsive legal thriller from Thriller Awardwinner Stone (Mr. Clarinet) centers on the arrest and impending trialseemingly a certain prosecutorial slam dunkof multimillionaire hedge funder Vernon James, a poor West Indian immigrants son, for the murder of the young blond whose strangled body is found in his luxury suite at the London hotel where only hours earlier he accepted an award from the Hoffmann Trust, a liberal umbrella organization, as Ethical Person of the Year. Jamess predicament should come as catnip to Terry Flyntat 38 hanging on by his fingernails to a job as a lowly legal clerkwho blames James, his former childhood best friend, for getting him booted out of Cambridge and starting him on the downward spiral of booze and depression that nearly destroyed his life. But, as Flynt is stunned to discover when hes tapped to work on the defense team, his feelings are significantly more complicated, especially once the evidence he starts to uncover suggests that James might be innocent. Though not all the plot strands tie up as tightly as one might wish, the Machiavellian plotting, Old Bailey fireworks, and almost Dickensian richness of character and setting make this a standout. Agent: Jane Gregory, Jane Gregory Literary Agency (U.K.). (Dec.)
