This book is hot but aside from the attorney thing it's tough to give a review without giving any of the cliff hangers away.
Attorney Ami Vergano is caught between a possible madwoman and a confessed mass murderer, between reality and delusion. Ami races to unearth the terrible truth about dark events that may or may never have happened twenty years earlier in a secluded cabin on Lost Lake.
"The characters enthrall, the plot twists surprise, the pages fly by. This is a thriller with thrill galore." - Seattle Post-Intelligencer
This book was the first book I've read by Philip Margolin and it was great! Great character development and enough twists and turns to keep you wondering if you really have it all figured out. The story moves fast and easily keeps you interested in the plot. You won't be sorry for trying this one!

In the current day attorney Ami Vergano witnesses an act of violence at a Little League game that shakes her trust in the gentle man who has ben renting space over her garage and who she considered a friend. A mysterious woman appears and asks her to represent the man in court. Before long the man and woman have told Ami a bizarre story about a secret military unit that committed murder and was involved in drug smuggling. The woman has a history of psychological problems and there are no records to back up their story and the accusation that a candidate for president is behind it all. Soon Ami doesn't know who or what to believe. This is a thrill a minute part action story and part court room drama with a satisfying and surprising ending. A first rate read.
