Description

"Breathtaking . . . A tightly woven spiderweb of plot and a rich cast of characters make this a truly gripping read." --Jeffery Deaver, author of "The Bodies Left Behind"

The murder of a Toronto radio host's wife engulfs the lives of cops, lawyers, and a journalist in this sprawling legal thriller.

It should be an open-and-shut case. Canada's leading radio-show host, Kevin Brace, has confessed to killing his young wife. The trouble is, after muttering his last incriminating wordes --"I killed her"-- he now refuses to talk to anyone, including his own lawyer.

With the discovery of strange fingerprints at the crime scene, and a revealing courtroom cross-examination, the seemingly simple case begins to take on all the complexities of a hotly contested murder trial.

In the tradition of defense lawyers-turned-authors such as Scott Turow and John Grisham, Toronto-based defense counsel Robert Rotenberg delivers a debut legal thriller.
