A prestigious San Francisco law firm on the brink of bankruptcy; a senior partner desperate to prevent it; a talented junior partner facing professional and personal trauma; a female associate determined to break into an all-male partnership; and a street-wise homicide cop who falls in love with her. These are the major players in an intriguing first novel by a nationally known trial attorney. Martel provides an engrossing look at the inner workings of a legal firm preparing a case with far-reaching ramifications for all involved. Critical of the powers that be in the justic system, this novel may top the list of requests for this summer's "on the beach" books.Judith A. Gifford, Salve Regina Coll. Lib., Newport, R.I.

"John Martel, one of the nation's leading trial attorneys, takes us into an arena we have rarely seen with such vividness and power -- the law -- in this explosive debut novel that rings with authenticity and edge-of-the-seat suspense."

A page-turner! Completely rivoting. I couldn't read it fast enough to find out what happened! I hated to see it come to an end!
