Publisher's Summary

On the 85th floor of a glittering high-rise in Los Angeles, Robert Tarza steps into the lobby of the Marbury Marfan law firm to discover his partner Simon Rafer lying in a pool of blood - an ornate dagger plunged into his back. Robert had worked with Simon for decades, and their relationship was fraught with conflict. But he never imagined he would wind up as the prime suspect for his colleague’s murder. As the evidence stacks up against him with frightening speed, he quickly falls from his respected position to that of a criminal dragged through the tabloids. With a growing suspicion that he’s being expertly framed, Robert digs into the evidence to clear his name. In the process, however, he uncovers a web of fraud among his closest associates. As time runs out, Robert must uncover the real killer or be prepared to go to prison for murder.

Excellent Mystery, Brilliant Narration

This story revolves around Robert Tarza, a successful and truly snobby 60 year old attorney who finds himself under suspicion of murder. But unlike most central characters, you don't have to identify or even like this man to enjoy his tale. The reason is the astounding characters that surround him, his 30 year old protege and one of the most formidable defense attorneys in L.A.

Not only is he in deep trouble with the law, his case is further complicated by his own arrogant and naive insistence (and against his defense attorney's advice) on investigating his own case. Worse still, his young protege is a brilliant litigator with no criminal experience who insists on being the lead attorney of the defense team. The tensions between the equally brilliant legal minds Tarza and his team leads to a great deal of humor in an ever more mysterious murder.

The trial sequences are truly entertaining as they are suspenseful.

The narration requires the voice of a snob, an impertinent and sexy protege, a frustrated Latino defense attorney, a wise if snarky female judge in prominent roles. He delivers in spades.

Worth your time? It certainly was for me!

Didn't See It Coming!

This is a great mystery, well developed and well narrated. I didn't see the conclusion coming. The author used an intelligent diversion right from the beginning that blinded me. I was on the wrong path as far as who I thought was the killer.

There are well developed minor characters and enough movement and action that held my attention and provided some laughs. This novel included scenes where the two central characters conducted tension-gartering, clandestine investigations and edge of your seat courtroom drama. With this narrator, I never had to consciously think about who was speaking. He was able to make significant changes in his voice to sound womanly and to use the quirks in a couple of the character's voice (eg. stuttering), so I was able to tell who was speaking at all times.
