"In the bestselling tradition of Lisa Scottoline and Perri O'Shaughnessy"
"When a powerful software entrepreneur is brutally slain, it appears as if Atlanta Assistant District Attorney Laura Chastain is looking at an open-and-shut capital punishment case. The savagely battered corpse was discovered on the victim's own car trunk, with career criminal Roland Jervis at the wheel. Infuriated by the opposing counsel's ineptitude, Laura begins to review the evidence against Jervis--and uncovers gaping holes. Stunned, she begins to suspect something other than a random car jacking gone bad--and someone other that the defendant whose fate now hangs precariously in the balance
Baffled by forensic clues and eye witness accounts that don't add up, Laura follows a murky trail that appears to be leading to the most unlikely places: the upper echelon of the Atlanta police department. Now she must decide whether to forge ahead with the prosecution of a possibly innocent man--or to take a radical step that could be her last..."

This book has been in my To Be Read pile for quite a while, but I have not gotten around to it. Therefore, I would like to pass it on to someone who would enjoy it. It is a legal thriller (not really my genre) similar to those by Lisa Scottoline. It centers on a DA in Atlanta reviewing evidence for an upcoming murder trial. She realizes that the forensic evidence and eyewitness accounts just don't add up. She is eventually led to some high-ranking officials within the Atlanta government.
