Summary

For attorney Mick McFarland, the evidence is damning. And so are the family secrets in this twisty legal thriller from the Amazon Charts bestselling author of A Criminal Defense.

When crime lord Jimmy Nunzio is caught, knife in hand, over the body of his daughter’s lover and his own archenemy, he turns to Mick McFarland to take up his defense. Usually the courtroom puppeteer, McFarland quickly finds himself at the end of Nunzio’s strings. Struggling to find grounds for a not-guilty verdict on behalf of a well-known killer, Mick is hamstrung by Nunzio’s refusal to tell him what really happened.

On the other side of the law, Mick’s wife, Piper, is working to free Darlene Dowd, a young woman sentenced to life in prison for her abusive father’s violent death. But the jury that convicted Darlene heard only part of the truth, and Piper will do anything to reveal the rest and prove Darlene’s innocence.

As Mick finds himself in the middle of a mob war, Piper delves deeper into Darlene’s past. Both will discover dark secrets that link these fathers and daughters - some that protect, some that destroy, and some that can’t stay hidden forever. No matter the risk.

had to stop the sting

I stopped listening about halfway through the book. The narrator's Voice was awful. he sounds like a news reporter who's trying to be an actor. it just didn't work

decent story, few chapters longer than needed

If you decide to read this one, you will see what I mean....I don't want to give away too much, but the defendant running the defense got tiresome. I wasn't sure of the nessesity of the storyline with our main attorney's business partner. I could've done without that. The ending doesn't disappoint. I will say that. I dont know if there is a book 2 with this attorney and his family, but I probably would read it if there is.
Also, I liked the narrator; he does a fine job.

men can't do women

story was great but reader trying to do a female voice was just bad. really should invest in a woman to do the female voices.

Well thought out

I enjoyed this book. Things were not overly predictable and it kept me interested until the last page.
