Summary:

Daniel Ames is an associate at Reed, Briggs, Portland's most prestigious law firm, earning more money than he ever imagined possible.
When a charismatic civil litigator sues the firm's biggest client for manufacturing a drug that he claims causes unspeakable birth defects, Daniel is certain the claim has no merit. But as he begins to investigate, his world comes tumbling down around him. His work is sabotaged, he's accused of professional incompetence, and he's fired. Twelve hours later he is arrested for murder.
Daniel scrambles to clear his name and save his reputation -- and in the process unearths a trail of deceit. But someone doesn't want this trail explored, and Daniel becomes the target of a vicious killer who will stop at nothing to prevent the truth from being revealed.

    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.
