When Paul Forte is indicted by a federal grand jury, everyone suspects prosecutor Bernard (don’t call him “Bernie”) Kilroy has more on his mind than justice. Then the FBI agent in charge of Paul’s case gives him a clue to the mystery: Kilroy is bent on settling an old family score, and he’s not above breaking the law to do it.
Paul is already dealing with the death of his parents and divorce from a woman he still loves. Now, with the support of an alluring grand juror, Paul must expose the vindictive prosecutor’s own corruption before the jury renders a verdict on his Osso Buco.

Perfect narration for great story

Entertaining, Funny and Smart
It's so well written. I decided to read this book after coming across reviews on Goodreads which referred to the author's “big voice” and called Morin “a funny Robert Heinlein”. The first comment is true and the second debatable, but I did enjoy this book. The audible performance is as engaging and entertaining as the novel: Sellon-Wright was a good choice for narrator and it was easy to visualize.
My favorite character was Paul Forte, the like-able hero with a dry wit and a passion for golf. It was quite a way into the story before I realized he was a republican and I’m not sure why it surprised me. I think democrats and republicans alike would enjoy this story. This story wouldn't have worked without Bernard Kilroy who plays the foil to the Paul's easy-going nature. He tries to use Paul as political fodder to forward his own career. But no plot spoilers here. ( :
It was a natural voice, easy to listen to, and the actor played all the characters well.
There are many moving, funny and sensual moments. It made me laugh often and increased my appreciation for golf. ( : The insight into the relationship between lobbyists and politicians was also an eye opener.
I'll be eager to read anything else Morin has to write. His background in law serves him well as a novelist, but he has a way with words that only a gifted writer could. I would have liked it if the court case has played out for a little longer because it was the writer's "forté" (no puns intended) but it was still a satisfying novel and one I won't forget.
