Publisher's Summary

When Leon Walker calls the husband-and-wife legal team of Mike Daley and Rosie Fernandez, this is not good news. Walker was the man who ruined their marriage years ago. When Mike defended Walker against murder charges arising out of a stickup-gone-bad, Rosie fought about it with Mike so much that it drove a wedge between them. Now, Walker has returned, and he's got a new murder pinned to his back. A Silicon Valley venture capitalist has been found dead in a dumpster on San Francisco's Skid Row. Walker swears he didn't do it, and prevails on Mike to represent him. Dogged investigation, courtroom nimbleness, and a healthy dose of luck have helped Mike before, but time is running out, both on his client...and his marriage.

Characters andPlot

Good writers develop the characters first, and the plot falls into place. This book is written by a good writer who knows how to do that. I wish his other books were not abridged.

One of the best in the series...

I thought this book was probably one of the best books in the Daly/Fernandez series. There are enough reviews and the synopsis that I won't restate the plot. I will say the ending left me feeling a little melancholy and it stayed with me long after I finished the book.
Stephen Hoye does an excellent job narrating.
This is an excellent book, the characters are fleshed out and the plot is interesting and kept my attention throughout with no lulls or fillers.
If you found this review helpful please indicate so.
Thank You.
