Summary

A defense attorney is prepared to play. But is she a pawn in a master’s deadly match? A twisting novel of suspense by New York Times bestselling author Robert Dugoni.

Keera Duggan was building a solid reputation as a Seattle prosecutor, until her romantic relationship with a senior colleague ended badly. For the competitive former chess prodigy, returning to her family’s failing criminal defense law firm to work for her father is the best shot she has. With the right moves, she hopes to restore the family’s reputation, her relationship with her father, and her career.

Keera’s chance to play in the big leagues comes when she’s retained by Vince LaRussa, an investment adviser accused of murdering his wealthy wife. There’s little hard evidence against him, but considering the couple’s impending and potentially nasty divorce, LaRussa faces life in prison. The prosecutor is equally challenging: Miller Ambrose, Keera’s former lover, who’s eager to destroy her in court on her first homicide defense.

As Keera and her team follow the evidence, they uncover a complicated and deadly game that’s more than Keera bargained for. When shocking information turns the case upside down, Keera must decide between her duty to her client, her family’s legacy, and her own future.

Critic reviews

“Fast-paced legal-intrigue gold that could be improved only by kicking off a new series.”Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

“Twist-filled.…John Grisham fans will be pleased.”Publishers Weekly

“One of the best puzzle books ever! I raced through the pages, which are packed full of compelling characters and taut gamesmanship, desperate to learn the answer to this extraordinary thriller, which is both whodunit and how-dunit. I would follow Robert Dugoni anywhere.”—Lisa Gardner, #1 New York Times bestselling author

Love this author.

Another fine book from Dugoni. I absolutely love his Tracey Crosswhite books, as soon as I’ve read one I’m waiting for the next.

Captivating

Took me an hour or so to get into this but then it had me and kept me engrossed to the end.
Excellent narration.

Good for Dugoni Fans

I'm a fan of Dugoni's Tracy Crosswhite series (and this is set in the same world which was a nice touch). His characters are interesting and he is an engaging writer, I did enjoy this and look forward to the rest of the series but the plot itself wasn't brilliant - the how was predictable and the why made no sense, okay for an episode of Law and Order perhaps but a bit thinly stretched over eleven hours.

Amazing book.

What an absolutely fascinating and intriguing story. These characters were so complex and had me guessing from the first page to the last. The way the story unfolds was genius. I liked that we got to hear about a few characters from the Tracey Crosswhite series too. It made it feel familiar even if the others were not as well known. I wasn’t sure until the end how it would unfold and didn’t see it ending the way it did. All I can say is read and listen to it and you’ll understand. Great narration as always.

Long winded

I stuck with the book, but I can’t say that it gripped me. Narration was a bit tedious
