At the top of his class at Harvard Law, he had his choice of the best in America. But he made a deadly mistake.

When Mitch McDeere signed on with Bendini, Lambert & Locke of Memphis, he thought he and his beautiful wife, Abby, were on their way. The firm leased him a BMW, paid off his school loans, arranged a mortgage, and hired him a decorator. Mitch McDeere should have remembered what his brother Ray—doing fifteen years in a Tennessee jail—already knew. You never get nothing for nothing.

Now the FBI has the lowdown on Mitch’s firm and needs his help. Mitch is left with no choice—if he wants to live.
