Attorney David Hirsch was the managing partner of a prestigious law firm when he was convicted of embezzlement and sentenced to federal prison. Seven years later, he's eager to rebuild a shattered career. He gets his chance when an elderly member of synagogue asks him to investigate his daughter's death. But a simple product liability lawsuit reveals something more sinister-a far-reaching conspiracy of corruption and cold-blooded murder pulling Hirsch into a dangerous battle of wits that could mean absolute downfall or total redemption. A really good book.

Nicely wrapped-up mystery with good depth from the Jewish culture/faith core, but the second half (before the wrapup) becomes unbelievable and a bit too big-screen-ambitious.
