Attorney Ben Corbin travels to Norway to settle a dispute between Karl and Gunnar Bjornsen, feuding brothers on the verge of developing a revolutionary neural stimulant that could turn first responders into superheroes. But more than just the fate of their pharmaceutical empire is at stake.
What starts as a sibling rivalry takes a deadly turn as Gunnar flees with the secret formula and Karl finds himself in the crosshairs of a bribery investigation. As Ben navigates a web of intrigue involving the Russian mob, embezzled funds, and black-market deals, he and his legal team are targeted for violent reprisals. Whoever is behind the attacks, it quickly becomes clear that no one and nothing - including the miracle drug itself - is as it seems.
Will lust for profit and unbridled ambition drive Cain to slay Abel - or will the intrepid lawyer trying to save them from destroying each other pay the ultimate price?

I love espionage, legal, and detective thrillers but listen to most genres. Very frequent reviews. No plot spoilers! Please excuse my typos!
This is Book 2 of the Dead Man's Rule series. I plan to listen to Novel 1 soon. This novel is about the legal fight between two Norwegian brothers over control of a pharmaceutical company they built together. Christopher Lane's narration is superb. Some listeners may object to the religious content of this novel, but it is certainly not overwhelming. Highly recommended!!
