Wild Justice Publisher's Summary

In a mountain cabin, a detective opens a Pandora's box of horror that will haunt him to his dying day. Within hours, Vincent Cardoni - a brilliant surgeon with a history of violence and drug abuse - is arrested for the heinous crime. Facing a seemingly insurmountable wall of evidence, he turns to top criminal defense attorney Frank Jaffe and his daughter Amanda. Her first taste of criminal defense work raises moral questions Amanda is loathe to address. Is she defending an innocent man or using her considerable skills to set a monster free? Then, Cardoni mysteriously disappears. Four years later, a second set of killings begins...Has Cardoni resurfaced? Is this the work of a copy-cat killer? Or has the real killer been someone else all along? Following a twisting trail of clues, including a harrowing diary that clinically records the killer's deeds, Amanda and detective Bobby Vasquez become targets of the first genuinely monstrous psychopath of the new century.
