Publisher's Summary

Jessie Black's successful prosecution of a serial murderer and rapist put her on the path to stardom at the Philadelphia District Attorney's Office. Public defender Jack Ackerman represented the opposition, and his spectacular public breakdown after the trial put him in a mental institution and gave Frank Ramsey a second chance at freedom.
When Ramsey petitions the court for a new trial with a claim that Ackerman was ineffective, Black must step up to defend him. To keep a convicted killer off the streets, she'll need to prove Ackerman's sanity - a fact she's far from sure of. As she prepares for trial, powerful forces conspire to put Ramsey back on the streets.
Black has one chance to keep Ramsey behind bars, and it'll be the toughest fight of her career.

EXCELLENT Court Room/Legal Thriller

Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

Absolutely ! Wasn't sure who was a good guy/who was a bad guy. You don't find out until almost the end of the book to find out who is what and why they are doing what they are doing.

Have you listened to any of Xe Sands’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Have never listened to Xe Sands before but she does a great job narrating.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Without a doubt. I listened to this book in one day. My next purchase will be the next book in the series.

Any additional comments?

This is a new author for me. I purchased this book after reading Wayne's review. I have found a few good authors by following him.
This book is fast paced and kept my attention. There are no lags and the suspense keeps building right to the last sentence.
If you found this review helpful please indicate so.
Thank You.

Great legal thriller; nothing is as it seems!

A man on death row gets a new trial due to ineffective counsel when his lawyer has a nervous breakdown at the completion of trial. The lawyer spends 6 months in a mental institution. Beware, NOTHING in this novel is as it seems because the second half has so many twists and turns that the listener must reexamine his/her perspectives again and again The author is very clever!. The first half of Burnout sets up the wild ride that is the second half
