This was a very good mystery, and was very well written by a veteran defense attorney. The courtroom scenes were brilliant. Lots of twists and turns and a great surprise ending.

When a murder is suspected but the body is not found, chances of a guilty verdict are slim, even with the best of circumstantial evidence. Chad Curtis, a charming young man and former professional athlete, is fortunate that attorney Sean Barrett cannot turn down the opportunity to make legal history with a rare no-corpse defense. As he builds his case, Sean soon finds himself separated from his former firm and facing sinister threats and violence. Beautiful Carrie Robinson, an attorney with skills and connections of surprising variety, may be Sean's best ally--or his worst enemy. As the violence escalates, Sean must become the chief investigator, finally discovering the bitter underlying motives of the true criminals. Eberhardt, a practicing attorney, provides a wealth of accurate and intimate legal detail in this first novel. He keeps the action moving in a cleverly designed yet tricky plot, and he develops memorable characters. Eberhardt is a talented new legal writer who can stand with Turow and Grisham.
Fabulously written, and highly suspenseful...I recommend it to anyone.
