In this mesmerizing tale of suspense from New York
Times bestselling author Phillip Margolin, attorney
Amanda Jaffeâ€”star of Wild Justice, Ties That Bind, Proof
Positive, and Fugitiveâ€”becomes entangled in a
murder case involving Big Oil, an estranged father and son,
and the greatest ethical dilemma of her career .
Masterson, senior partner in a large Portland, Oregon, law
firm, has become wealthy and successful representing the
interests of oil and coal companies. When his colleague,
Christine Larson, is found dead, Mastersonâ€™s business
practices are put under surveillance and a lower-level
employee stands accused.
The controversy surrounding
the firm is magnified tenfold when Dale is found beaten to
death in his mansion. But this time Daleâ€™s son, Brandon, is
seen fleeing the scene. A dedicated eco-warrior obsessed
with saving the planet, Brandon confesses to killing his
fatherâ€”for revenge, he claimsâ€”on behalf of all the people
whose lives are being destroyed by his fatherâ€™s questionable
Veteran lawyer Amanda Jaffe is hired to
represent Brandon, but what seems like an open-and-shut case
quickly begins to unravel. If Brandon is really innocentâ€”a
radical activist determined to martyr himself for his
causeâ€”then who viciously murdered Dale Masterson? And what,
if any, is the connection between his murder and the murder
of Christine Larson? Smart, fierce, and unafraid of the
truth even if it puts her in danger, Amanda begins to look
deeper. What she finds will force the seasoned legal pro to
make the hardest professional decision of her life.
