An electrifying courtroom drama of extraordinary power, reissued to tie in with the super release of In the Presence of Enemies. A failed trial lawyer and recovering alcoholic is swept back into the spectacular career he'd lost when a woman from his past asks him to defend her stepdaughter against a murder charge.
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "When attorney Charley Sloan, a recovering alcoholic determined to maintain a low profile after barely escaping disbarment, agrees to represent a beautiful young heiress accused of murdering her father, he is reluctantly thrust back into the limelight. Though Angel Harwell, his emotionally detached client, has already confessed to the crime, Charley must win the case in order to salvage his exceedingly tarnished professional reputation. As Charley masterfully manipulates the court system, Angel coolly contrives to exploit his sordid past to her own advantage. A gripping mystery and reflective judicial drama that explores a number of relevant moral, ethical, and legal conundrums. ~--Margaret Flanagan"
