Publisher's Summary

Defending an innocent young man, defense attorney Paul Madriani uncovers a morass of corruption and greed that leads to the highest levels of political power in this electrifying tale of suspense from New York Times best-selling author Steve Martini.
One of the most successful lawyers in the country, Olinda Serna, is a master at managing money as well as her influential clients. After years of fierce combat in the political trenches, Serna knows all the dirty secrets, where the bodies are buried, and how deeply they are stacked. When she's killed in a roadside crash in the high desert of Southern California, powerful heads in Washington begin to panic, worried that their secrets may not be safe anymore.
Alex Ives, a friend of Paul Madriani's daughter, is accused of vehicular manslaughter in Serna's death. Ives claims he had only one drink on the night of the accident, yet he can't remember anything between the time he left for a party north of San Diego and the moment he woke up in a hospital the next morning. He's still dazed and a little bruised but also obviously very afraid. After all, a woman is dead, and he's sure he didn't kill her.
To save an innocent young man's life, the brilliant defense attorney must uncover everything he can about Serna and her clients no matter how unsavory - a search that will lead him into a vortex of corruption and, at its center, a devious killer poised to strike again.

Where is the Legal Thriller??

I have followed Steve Martini for decades and use to run to the store when a new Paul Madriani novel was released. Martini has written so many intriguing and satisfying legal thrillers. Even though Martini still has a way with words, the plots of the last several books have changed the genre from legal thriller to more of an espionage / government-backed assassin type genre.

This genre change may interest others, but I found the plot too far-fetched and just not compelling. I did listen until the end, but wished I had quit earlier. I plan to listen to the early books again. I recommend those to you.

Intense but complicated plot

I always enjoy Martini books, but this one seemed a little complicated to me. Several storylines were given, and all of them did not seem to be resolved - at least in my view! maybe he will follow up another plot in the next book.
