From the back cover:
Justice has turned a blind eye to Los Angeles defense attorney David
Nova. Embroiled in a bitter custody battle with his estranged wife over his young daughter, Nova now faces a far more dangerous adversary. He is Randy Sturgis, a convicted murderer...and Nova's former client. Rleased after ten years on a technicality, Sturgis has just kidnapped a distinguished federal judge. His frightening agenda cuts at the heart of Nova's private life, as Sturgis challenges him to hunt them down. Caught up in a desperate search, trapped in his own personal trial of deception and betrayal, Nova finds himself tested again and again--as a lawyer, as a father, and as a man. Each step brings him closer to the edge...and to a merciless killer whose final plan of retribution will give justice a terrifying new face...
