Publisher's Summary

Judge Daniel Brennan is only days away from achieving a seat on the Second Circuit Court of Appeals bench when he's brutally stabbed to death in his garage. An army of media and law enforcement descend on the case, and thousands of tips pour in from the public. When one tip leads New Jersey policeman Luke Somers to Steven Gallagher, things quickly go wrong, but Luke is instantly glorified for solving the case.
But to one man, Luke is no hero. Chris Gallagher raised his brother, Steven, almost single-handedly, and, certain that Steven is innocent, he won't rest until he sets the record straight. Thanks to Luke's newfound fame, he's an easy man to find, and Chris quickly makes it clear that Luke's own brother will die if Luke refuses to help clear Steven's name.
So begins Luke's desperate attempt to find another suspect - and other suspect - in Judge Brennan's death. But Luke's investigation might open the door to powerful forces even more dangerous than Chris Gallagher.


What the Critics Say

“…He (Narrator Jeff Steitzer) has a wonderful deep and gravelly voice, very natural and pleasant to listen to. Steitzer reads with feeling and the many and well-developed characters, all of whom are voiced, ring true. His handling of the dry humor characteristic of Rosenfelt’s writing is excellent. The plot, wild and occasionally over-complicated, will draw listeners in immediately.” (Sound Commentary)

Why is this not in David Rosenfelt style?

This book has no humor in it. Sprinkled in some areas as a after though by David, but the book is serious mediocre thriller. The creator of the genre called humor mystery thrillers has left out humor in this book. So for Andy Carpenter fans this will be a mega disappointment, For the rest it will be just a regular disappointment.

Enjoyed the story..

...but found the ending disturbing. It's just another piece of how our society has lost track of the difference between justice and revenge.
The overall storyline, though, was absorbing and made for a great who-dunnit.
