Publisher's Summary

Growing up on the mean streets of New York City, Johnny and Mikey always had each other's back. Mikey was a loyal friend, but even he knew that Johnny was headed for bigger things. That's why he dubbed him the "Mayor of Lexington Avenue".The two friends were inseparable - until one fateful night set them on their different paths: Johnny to life as a high-powered lawyer in Miami, and Mikey to a shattered existence behind bars. Now, haunted by guilt over Mikey's conviction, and numbed by the excesses of a successful life, Johnny finds his one last shot at redemption: A young Florida man is framed for a murder he didn't commit, and Johnny feels compelled to fight for him - and, in a way, for Mikey. But there are powerful people who want the truth hidden, and Johnny will have to risk everything and everyone he cares about to save the young man...and himself.

A Pleasant Surprise

Got this book on blind faith, with a story that sounded interesting, and because it was read by Dick Hill who I enjoy very much. While I wasn't expecting a lot, it was enjoyable, and interesting, and I am now very glad to have read it. The plot is something like Kite Runner, so if you enjoyed that, you will probably enjoy this also. One friend grows to success while the other is sacrificed for a crime that he should not have had to pay for alone. It is a story of redemption for the boy who gets away and makes it big, but is burdened with a lifetime of guilt over leaving his best friend to take the wrap for a crime that he should have shared. In the end, he faces his demons of this episode in his life, and searches for a way to make peace with the regrets that he has carried for so long. I was never bored with the story, rather was always engaged, and would recommend this listen. Dick Hill just makes it all that much better.

Interesting Criminal Investigation, CourtroomDrama

This book is fast paced and will keep your interest. It is not one of those books that never slows enough to develop the characters or the plot. It just delivers an interesting story if you aren't looking for a murder and a scare every other page. I liked it because of the well-explained courtroon strategies and the believable (though somewhat formulaic) plot twists.
This book will keep your interest and you won't want to turn it off when you pull into your driveway.
