Daniel Ames is an associate at Reed, Briggs, Portland's most prestigious law firm, earning more money than he ever imagined possible.

When a charismatic civil litigator sues the firm's biggest client for manufacturing a drug that he claims causes unspeakable birth defects, Daniel is certain the claim has no merit. But as he begins to investigate, his world comes tumbling down around him. His work is sabotaged, he's accused of professional incompetence, and he's fired. Twelve hours later he is arrested for murder.

Daniel scrambles to clear his name and save his reputation, and in the process unearths a trail of deceit. But someone doesn't want this trail explored, and Daniel becomes the target of a vicious killer who will stop at nothing to prevent the truth from being revealed.

    " This is a great legal thriller. It was very well written and easy to read. I highly recommend this book to anyone that likes John Grisham, or is looking for something new to read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 GIZMO | 2/10/2014

    " what can I say...started this book at 11 pm and finished it by 3 am...story so riveting I had to read it straight through...thumbs up "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Pat Phillips | 2/10/2014

    " Pharmaceutical company sued over birth defects allegedly caused by one of their products. Young lawyer charged with murder. Floodgates open and murders abound as do suspects. Good story. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ron | 2/1/2014

    " Nancy 5 stars; Ron 5 stars "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Roger | 1/26/2014

    " A pretty standard legal thriller, with a "nice guy" lawyer at the center of the action-that's how I knew it was fiction. An entertaining but ultimately unconvincing novel. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kristen | 1/17/2014

    " This is a fabulous legal thriller with thrills, chills, romance, drama and action, for my final Phil Margolin read this year. This is an action-packed read for a few days. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Greer Andjanetta | 1/14/2014

    " A typically good read by Margolin, this time about a young lawyer newly hired by a prestigious law firm who is framed for a crime. Romantic developments plus the twists and turns of the plot yield an entertaining story. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jennifer | 1/6/2014

    " I was actually really impressed how this book played out. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Roxanne | 12/27/2013

    " Overall basically a good book. I felt it got a bit confusing towards the middle, but it did resolve itself by the end. Not my favorite of Margolin's, but a good read none the less. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Laurie Stoll | 12/26/2013

    " I enjoyed this story and it was certainly worth the .49 I paid for it. Some of the story was predictable but it was still a good story. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Ryan13 | 12/21/2013

    " Falls short. Stylistically standard and predictable. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sarah Marble | 11/17/2013

    " I was sad when this ended. Even though some of the lines were super cheesy. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Diane | 11/6/2013

    " A good quick read mystery. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Betty | 1/8/2013

    " I did not do justice to this book as I listened to it on tape and it took me all summer as I listened to it when I walked. There are many characters and I would be a bit confused but it was good enough to keep me listening for 12 tapes! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mike | 8/22/2012

    " The way the two stories intertwined was rather confusing. The characters in the second storyline were not easy to keep straight. But the key storyline, about Daniel, was very compelling. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Nancy | 8/20/2012

    " Nancy 5 stars; Ron 5 stars "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Marcie | 6/30/2012

    " Too convoluted and did not catch my interest too well. The two stories only connected vaguely and took away from each other. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Suzanne | 5/27/2012

    " legal thriller, lots of characters..so easy to get confused and several plots..but good read "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Betty | 3/26/2011

    " There are worse crime novels, but there are much better. The premise is scary enough...how easy is is fall victim to a set up. The plot drives you through, but that's not enough to make me satisfied as a reader. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Karina | 2/9/2011

    " Kinda slow in the beginning, but ended up being a pretty good book!! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Joe | 8/8/2010

    " Some very well developed characters, some just fluff. Figured out the mystery person, but not the new identity. Too many murders, cluttered up the story.
