See all titles by Jay Brandon.
Sexual politics, corruption in high-school athletics, revenge, and a mysterious stalker combine for an explosive new legal thriller by lawyer/author Jay Brandon. Four years ago, San Antonio District Attorney Chris Sinclair faced his first and biggest case as a defense attorney. His friend, teacher Henry Claremont had been accused of rape. Chris won the case, but had to reveal a love affair Henry had with another teacher. Then Henry's body was found, beaten to death.
Fast-forward to the present, when Chris Sinclair receives word that Henry's murder has been solved. The man accused, Hike Grimason, is a high ranking school administrator and high school basketball coach who, Chris discovers, took bribes from parents of his basketball players. During this trial, Chris and his daughter Clarissa are threatened by a man identical to the convicted multiple-murder Malachi Reese.
As events rush to a furious climax, Chris must succeed in the most high-pressure courtroom performance of his career, if he is to save Clarissa and to feel he's brought justice to his unfairly accused friend Henry, whose death can be avenged only through Grimason's conviction.
