Publisher's Summary

Late one night Victor Carl gets a panicked phone call from an old law school classmate. Guy Forrest claims he has just found the body of his fiance lying murdered in the house they shared. The victim is Hailey Prouix, for whose love Guy had abandoned his children, his job, his wife, his life. Hailey had mesmerized every man she ever met, including, unbeknownst to Guy, Victor Carl. Convinced that Guy is Hailey's killer, Victor agrees to represent him, all the while secretly vowing to see justice done, whatever the cost.

Victor embarks on a quest that will take him from Philadelphia to Las Vegas to the valleys of West Virginia. He digs further into Hailey Prouix's past and discovers that nothing is as simple as it had seemed, especially the woman he thought he loved. As Guy's murder trial heads toward its shattering conclusion, Victor must find the brutal truth before the mechanism of retribution he himself has set into motion falls like a hatchet, smack on his client's head.

What the Critics Say

"What raises Lashner's thriller above the ordinary is its rich and resonant first-person narrative." (Publishers Weekly)
"The author's prose style achieves a rare lyricism in places, and his characters are deep pools of mystery. A first-rate legal thriller." (Booklist)

    "a mesmerizing listen"

    This audiobook is engaging in its character development, surprising in its plot twists, and a refreshing example of clever writing. Lashner had me in his spell from the opening and kept me waiting for the next opportunity to listen to the story. do yourself a favor and listen to this one!

    "Victor Carl Is a Great Character"

    Good characters make good books. Victor Carl is a conflicted lawyer on the thin line between ethical and unethical conduct in this engaging book written by Lashner. If you enjoy both a sense of the police procedural as well as the legal thriller, you'll like this book. It's well done, and the narrator makes you feel like he's reading his own story. This is an excellent audiobook.
