“L.A. Law meets The Godfather… The next book you’ll see everybody reading – the way we all carted around presumed innocent.” – USA Today
At the top of his class at Harvard Law, he had his choice of the best in America. He made a deadly mistake.
When Mitch McDeere signed on with Bendini, Lambert & Locke of Memphis, he thought he and his beautiful wife, Abby, were on their way. The firm teased him a BMW, paid off his school loans, arranged a mortgage, and hired him a decorator. Mitch McDeere should have remembered what his brother Ray – doing fifteen years in a Tennessee jail – already knew. You never get nothing for nothing. Now the FBI has the lowdown on Match’s firm and needs his help. Mitch is caught between a rock and a hard place, with no choice – if he wants to live.

“Keeps the reader hooked… From the creepy first chapters… to the vise-tightening midsection and on to the take-the-money-and-run finale.” – The Wall Street Journal
