Lawyer Sam Bogardus's client believed her natural father died years ago in a bizarre accident. But now, she's received word that he's still alive and tied to a hidden fortune. Sam's investigation uncovers a web of conspiracy so shocking that it's enough to make the lawyer take the law into his own hands. Powerful suspense from the bestselling author of Compelling Evidence and Prime Witness. Fine.

What a talented writer. This was his first effort and it was a good one. As much as I enjoy the main character of his other novels, Sam Bogardus is a gem. And Martini got me with the ending -- I was not expecting it. Overall, a great read with some wonderful full-blown characters. Read full review
