Jon Soliday is legal counsel to a powerful politician - also his childhood best friend - who is running for governor. The two have shared political success and undying loyalty. They also share a dark secret from the summer of 1979: a party that resulted in the death of a teenage girl. Soliday was implicated, but through his friend's political connections, escaped legal trouble.

Soliday remembers little from that night, but carries an uncertain guilt he can't shake. Now, as the players from 1979 fall prey to an unknown killer, Soliday himself is accused of murder. And as the puzzle unfolds, the people he most suspects are those he has entrusted with his defense - his ambitious defense attorney and his oldest friend.

A man's past, both what he remembers and what he fears, has never felt so crushing - and may well leave him without a future.

    " A great thriller. A few red herrings thrown in, great character development, and a surprise giant twist at the ending that kept me thinking about the book long after I had finished. I must get more books by David Ellis. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Katherine Clark | 4/11/2010

    " Probably 3 1/2 stars. I read this before, but had forgotten so much of it, and I like Ellis so much, that I kept reading. I did not remember the ending, so really good I kept reading. The ending was so over the top that it prevented it from getting 4 stars, but I'm really enjoying Ellis. "
