Losing the trial of his life could mean losing the whole lot.
When a young reporter is found dead and a prominent Philadelphia businessman is accused of her murder, Mick McFarland finds himself involved relating to his life. The defendant, David Hanson, used to be Mick’s close friend in law school, and the victim, a TV news reporter, had reached out to Mick for legal assist only hours before her death.
Mick’s played both sides of Philadelphia’s courtrooms. As a top-shelf defense attorney and former prosecutor, he knows all of the tricks of the trade. And he’ll need each certainly one of them to win.
But as the trial progresses, he’s disturbed by developments that confirm his deepest fears. This trial, one that already hits too with reference to home, may jeopardize his firm, his circle of relatives—the whole lot. Now Mick’s only way out is to mastermind the most brilliant defense he’s ever spun, one so as to cross each legal and moral boundary.
