Publisher's Summary

When Terry Flynt gets the chance to defend a millionaire accused of murder, he knows the case could make his career - but the accused man is Flynt's greatest enemy. Can he defend a man who ruined his life?
Terry Flynt is a struggling legal clerk desperately trying to get promoted when he is given the biggest opportunity of his career: to help defend a millionaire accused of murdering a woman in his hotel suite. The only problem is that the accused man, Vernon James, is not only someone he knows but someone he loathes. This case could potentially make Terry's career, but how can he defend a former friend who betrayed him?
With the trial date looming, Terry delves deeper into Vernon's life and is forced to confront secrets from their shared past that could have devastating consequences for them both. For years, he has wanted to witness Vernon's downfall, but with so much at stake, how can Terry be sure he is guilty? And what choices must he make to ensure that justice is done?

"David Thorpe dazzles with his performance.... [T]he characters run the gamut from upper-crust Brits to African immigrants, and Thorpe can do it all.... This production is jet-propelled and marvelously entertaining." ( AudioFile)

One of THE best audiobooks ever!

It's very long but really just the right length. I hope Audible gets more titles by this author IN ENGLISH! And David Thorpe is a brilliant narrator!

A great saga of a British legal case which centers on the personal evolution of the character telling the story. If you like Grisham and Connelly you should love this book. That it's set in London is an added bonus IMO. I wish I had saved it to listen to on an up coming road trip - which crossed my mind when I started listening and saw how good it was, but once I started I couldn't stop.

I have joined the list of happy listeners who gave this book 5 stars plus! Having listened to or read many legal thrillers- many disappoint or have neat endings. This one is different. The plot is full of interesting twists and turns, the characters are multidimensional and the ending is not trite. I found myself taking the long way home in the car just to get more listening time in. You will not be disappointed in this book, it’s worth every minute of your listening time and your money.
