But when information implicating company malfeasance surfaces, the intrepid lawyer doggedly scrambles to find the truth'an investigation that leads him into a vortex of greed, corruption, deceit, and murder.

    A well done book, good story, well told. I have enjoyed each of Phillip Margolin's books.

    Enjoyed this book. Was glad to see a brief appearance of Amada Jaffe in this story. For an attorney the hero made a few dumb mistakes but I guess that would probably be true in real life. I will look for more books by this author and reader.

    I just recently discovered this author and really enjoy his stories. This book was suspenseful and I didn't guess "the culprit". Worth the listen.

    Our hero Daniel is a bit too wimpy, and his dialogue does not seem realistic. Other characters are more complex.
