Book 10 of the Thaddeus Murfee Series

Thaddeus Murfee is a young criminal lawyer. He has a wife, kids, and a strong sense of justice. Yet, all of that is about to change forever.

And there is nothing he can do to stop it.

Or is there?

A longtime friend has been arrested for driving drunk and causing a death. The friend also happens to be the District Attorney. Thaddeus agrees to meet. He learns about the DA's drinking. He learns that the DA's wife is on the prowl with strange men, and the DA is dangerously close to murder.

Thaddeus sets out to defend. Two months in, he is savagely attacked. His office puts in a call to Christine Susmann. His old paralegal drops what she is doing and hurries to his side. Together again, Thaddeus and Christine mount their defense of the DA and mount their drive to bring Thaddeus back to health.

At last the case goes to trial. For the first time ever, Thaddeus is unsure of his abilities in front of a jury. He stumbles. Will he recover and carry the fight?
