Judge Armando Acosta has been summarily dismissed from the bench after
being arrested on what he maintains is a trumped-up charge of
soliciting a prostitute. When the key witness in the case against
Acosta is found murdered and all the evidence points to Acosta as the
killer, the former judge suddenly finds himself in desperate need of a
tough, savvy lawyer to handle his case. An ironic set of circumstances
eventually leads him to his longtime enemy Paul Madriani, who must
combat police corruption, slurs against his own reputation, physical
attacks, uncooperative witnesses, and a flamboyant, politically
ambitious prosecutor who's as dangerous as a cobra. In a series of
suspenseful courtroom scenes, Madriani mounts a tenuous but ultimately
brilliant defense, racing against time to find the evidence he
needs--and is certain exists--to prove his client's innocence. A
keep-'em-guessing page-turner that will keep readers riveted.
