Jalen Jordan retained Street for what seemed to be a minor traffic violation, but when evidence turned up linking Jordan to the death of two boys, Street wanted out of the case. To ensure his lawyer's cooperation and silence, Jordan threatened to make Street's son the next victim. Shortly after, Jordan's own body turned up with a bullet hole in his chest.
Now Street is on trial for his life, and the enemy he made in the DA's office is clearly out for blood. It's one lawyer out to frame another. Can a desperate father escape punishment for a crime he didn't commit?

Power In The Hands of Dishonest Prosecutors
Power in the wrong hands can prove deadly! Street is a good guy that anyone and everyone will want to root for. As Jean of Santa Cruz, CA noted about the author, "Pratt does not hide the cynicism he has for the system, and how easy it is to get lost when facing the power of the government."
This legal thriller is primarily about the abuse of power in our judicial system. The protagonist is Darren Street, a criminal defense attorney who years ago had ousted an abusive district attorney from office. Now, years later, the ousted district attorney devise a plan to get even with Street.
Darren Street is plunged head-long into the criminal justice system where he has to contend with false accusation, humiliation, indignity, government sponsored isolation and torture, beatings and stab wounds until the wheels of the justice system nearly grinds him to dust. This legal thriller literally grabs you by the ears from first words and never let go. It is fast paced with excellent character development and twists and turns that propels the story forward and keep you on the edge of your seat and listening.
The narrator is really good! In the beginning I thought "oh boy!, I'm not going to like this narrator but, once again, I was wrong. Nick Podehl is really good.

Best Scott Pratt yet
I was completely engrossed from the beginning. All the author's books are good reads, but this one was even better. I have been unable to listen to the previous titles due to the poor narration, but this narrator is perfect. You won't be disappointed. I hope this turns into a new series.

Totally Substantive and Enthralling Legal Stoy
A fully comprehensive tale. You don't feel a desire to know what happens next at the conclusion of the court case because you're taken on that journey also. A very interesting journey and I look forward to the next story. The journey will hopefully be as epic and enjoyable.
