Faced with evidence of stunning prosecutorial misconduct, a San Francisco judge has ordered a new trial for the Maxwell brothers' father, Lawrence, who was convicted of killing their mother 21 years before. A prison snitch soon turns up dead, with Lawrence the only suspect, and Leo teams up with hotshot attorney Nina Schuyler to defend Lawrence against murder charges both old and new.
Working the streets while Nina handles the action in the courtroom, Leo is forced to confront the darkness at the center of his life as he follows a trail of corruption and danger that leads to the very steps of City Hall.
“Lachlan Smith has done the impossible—written a riveting debut novel that stands with the best legal thrillers on my bookshelf.” (Linda Fairstein, best-selling author of Night Watch, on Bear Is Broken)
“Smith has created a wonderfully readable pair of brothers in Teddy and Leo Maxwell.... Lion Plays Rough is as good as Bear Is Broken, which is high praise indeed.” (Huntington News, on Lion Plays Rough)
