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.

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!

Twenty years ago a woman witnessed the brutal murder of a congressman. She was committed to an asylum by her father a powerful General. 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.

Well defined and interesting characters. The story line held together, but was very standard right-wing zealot/CIA/Vietnam conspiracy type stuff. Not quite as challenging to the reader as "After Dark" was, but still a good read.

Not typical of the type of book that I would like.... military thriller/mystery, however, I couldn't stop reading this one. Overall, very good and interesting story lines.

I loved this book, kept me turning pages and had just enough twists and turns to keep you totally hooked like a book that has a lot of links to different situations and this one had it all.

This suspense novel is definitely not the author's best effort, but interesting characters and a military cover-up made this an easy and enjoyable read for me on a rainy afternoon.
