Amanda Jaffe, star of Margolin's biggest best seller yet, Wild Justice, returns with a story of how the evidence that we think is the most reliable could be meting out a different type of "justice" than the public suspects.
Doug Weaver is a defense attorney who believes the best of his clients, until he's confronted with seemingly unshakable evidence that a man he's thought innocent must be guilty. Bernard Cashman is a forensic expert at the Oregon State Crime Lab with his own ideas about what's right and wrong, and his own plans and methods for carrying out what he thinks is a fair sentence.
When Doug, Amanda, and Cashman's goals collide, danger and death ensue, and each must decided for them self how much they're willing to risk to expose their version of the truth.
Margolin's third legal thriller featuring lawyer Amanda Jaffee is proof positive that the whole is greater than the sum of its parts - especially when boosted by a competent narrator like this one. Nanette Savard saves the day by propelling listeners through some implausible legal shenanigans and equally trite dialogue. Jaffee defends a troubled man accused of murder while her father, also a lawyer, is hired to defend a gangster, similarly accused. Both are unaware that the cases are linked and evidence has been tampered with. Savard's crisp narration makes the listening experience pleasurable.
"Enough clever twists to satisfy faithful fans and newcomers." (Publishers Weekly)
