As husband and wife, Mike Daley and Rosie Fernandez couldn't make it work. But as partners in one of San Francisco's most tenacious law firms, Daley and Fernandez make one hell of a team.
Judgment Day finds the ex-spouses tackling their most difficult case yet. Called in at the last minute to try to stop the execution of Nathan Fineman, a former mob lawyer convicted of murdering three people in the back room of Chinatown's notorious Golden Dragon Restaurant, Mike and Rosie must race the clock in a desperate attempt to prove their client's innocence. With only 10 days to go and a wealth of forensic evidence pointing overwhelmingly to Fineman's guilt, their task seems impossible. Complicating matters, Mike must battle his own personal demons when the reputation of his dead father - a San Francisco cop who was one of the first officers at the scene the night of the murders - is called into question.
And as the plot hurtles toward its stunning denouement, judgment day is fast approaching not only for Nate Fineman, but for Mike's father and the law firm of Daley and Fernandez as well.

Innocent & on death row...
This is book 6 in the Mike Daley/Rosie Fernandez legal mystery series. I've been listening to this series and HIGHLY RECOMMEND all of the books so far. I can only assume that the rest of the books are of this same caliber.
I won't restate the plot as I think the synopsis does that adequately. I will say that this book is complex and there are a few names and relationships to keep track of. This is a multiplayer plot with the characters very well fleshed out, right down to a jail house snitch with a story of corruption. Daley and Fernandez must follow 10 year old clues to find the truth. Very interesting, solid legal/courtroom mystery that leaves no questions unanswered.
Tim Campbell does an excellent job narrating.
Cannot RECOMMEND this book enough.

Oh No! Only Hours Remain... GULP!
This is one of those count-down adventures. You know, '... only seconds remain until... 10... 9... 8...&quot; Normally I'd rebel against this sort of showy manipulation. But Sheldon Segel's roasted this old chestnut legal-suspense thriller gimmick and turned it into the best Daley/Fernandez adventure so far. Not to worry, I've given nothing away since their clock starts ticking on the very first pages. I especially liked it that Tim Campbell doesn't revert to a breathless reading, instead he teases the suspense at a pace calculated to actually keep it in the background while building upon Siegel's plot twists.
Here's a good adventure, nicely told and narrated. Satisfying stuff from a pro team all about a pro-team doing their job without some arch villain over-acting all-over the text.
Great legal escape here. What the heck... I give it 15 stars.

This series is gripping and enthralling. But this particular book has been the best so far! The whole landscape has changed yet again and no one will be the same.
The next in the series will have a lot to beat...
