Peter Hale is a young attorney with a lot to prove. Crossing his father, one of Portland's most powerful lawyers, was a costly mistake. Now, cut loose from his job and his inheritance, Peter's landed in the public defender's office of a small Oregon town—and in the middle of a high-profile case that could make or break his career. His mentally handicapped client, accused of the savage murder of a college coed, faces the death penalty. And Peter faces a choice—between the pursuit of headlines and the pursuit of truth, between the compulsion to save himself and the courage to save his client—in a devastating trial by fire.

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dave | 2/18/2014

    " A nice story of a poor spoiled rich kid forced to grow up. And he does so wonderfully. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Beth | 2/10/2014

    " Even though this audiobook was abridged, I didn't feel like I missed out on any of the story, which is sometimes the case with audio. I really enjoyed this story of a self-centered lawyer who learns all about himself while trying an important criminal case that he isn't qualified to try. This book was an interesting Who-Dun-It that kept me guessing until the end. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 GIZMO | 2/8/2014

    " just didn't like it...disjointed with too many surprises added purely for the sake of ending the book...NOT recommended "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Wuraola Akande | 2/2/2014

    " An awesome read, had this book for a few months before actually reading it. Just to say when i started a couldn't stop! The story is a well balanced and awesome piece of work which provides a conclusion with a twist! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Cindy | 1/31/2014

    " We both loved the characters and the plot of this book. Dale and I are turninging into real audio book worms. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Carolyn | 1/28/2014

    " Excellent, keeps you guessing kind of book! Think I'll read more of his books. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Autumn | 1/23/2014

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Sharon | 12/7/2013

    " Predictable, thought the writing could have been better. Lawyer son not living up to father's expectations, banished to a wasteland, ends up taking on a case he is inexperienced for. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Ian | 11/18/2013

    " Not that bad of a read, reminded me of Grisham in the manner that it revolves around courtroom activities. It sure did pull me along, and although I couldn't put it down at parts, the ending wasn't as great as I had hoped. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Charlie | 11/5/2013

    " This is a very good book. I had to read the last 100 pages twice to see where my thoughts had tricked me. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Dannye | 11/3/2013

    " The plot was well constructed. The author led you down a number of paths, causing you to decide that was whodunit, but it wasn't. The overall theme as it related to the evolution of the main character was handled well. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Deanna Drai Turner | 10/18/2013

    " How disappointing. Super mystery premise. Redundant. Ill resolution. Not worth it for me. "
