It's never what it seems...

Young attorney Michael Fiske broke the law when he took Rufus Harms's prison letter from the Supreme Court. But he also sealed his own fate. Suddenly everyone who has anything to do with Harms or his appeal mysteriously dies. Now Michael's brother John, a cop turned attorney, comes to Washington to find out why his brother was murdered--and what it had to do with a crime that Harms committed twenty-five years before. But the one man who can help John, the one man who knows what really happened more than two decades ago--and why--has escaped from prison and is running for his life.

    USA Today

  • “It’s a truism that readers who like Grisham’s novels often take to Baldacci’s, but never has Baldacci’s debt to the more veteran author been so evident as in this strong-boned thriller…For foxy plotting, Baldacci is easily Grisham’s peer, and his characters are always captivating…Generously textured, distinguished by thoughtful delvings into family psychodramatics, a nicely rendered romance between two tentative lovers.”

    Publishers Weekly
