On the outside, Amanda Jaffe has healed from the traumatic events that concluded the sensational New York Times best-seller Wild Justice, but inside, she's struggling to regain her self-assurance. When she is forced to represent a pimp accused of murder (a case no other lawyer will touch), her client threatens her, strirring up the trauma to such an extent that she must finally seek the help of a psychiatrist.

Her opponent on the murder case, ADA Tom McCorkle, is a local hero (he won the Heisman Trophy and secured for the University of Oregon its only victory in the Rose Bowl fifteen years earlier) who is embroiled in his own crisis of confidence, because his popularity is based on a lie. When two people involved in Amanda's case also wind up murdered, Amanda's investigation reveals strange links between a powerful group of men and a drug-related bloodbath many years before. They're called The Courthouse Athletic Club but who are they? Why are they interested in a small-time pimp? And is it possible that their power and influence reaches all the way to the presidency?

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Pa | 5/15/2010

    " A pretty good mystery/suspense novel based in Portland, OR. The star is lawyer, Amanda Jaffe, who takes on a dangerous case though traumatized by an earlier adventure. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Susan | 4/2/2010

    " Suspense novels are perhaps not the best for audio books... There were so many characters introduced in the first half hour that I had to go back and listen to it all again. After that, though, I did enjoy the plot and actually looked forward to my driving time when I could hear the next chapter. "

    " I just cannot believe how incredible this author is. You MUST read to the final page on this one too! Margolin is the "king" of page-turners! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Breia | 9/14/2009

    " I would give this book 4.5 stars. The book was really, really good but I really didn't like the end. Issues wrapped up a little too nicely and the confrontation was not believable. But the plot and story line and the characters were very nicely written. "
