Hot-shot attorney Jason Kolarich returns in the stunning new thriller from the Edgar Award winning author.
Jason Kolarich is in a bad
way—physically wounded and emotionally wrecked after his last case, he’s
selfmedicating with prescription painkillers, too much alcohol, and
brief affairs. When one of these affairs turns sour, Kolarich is left
fending off the advances of a beautiful, nefarious woman who may be more
than she appears. . . .
And Kolarich’s next client isn’t
going to make life any easier. Marshall Renfro is the prime suspect in a
string of serial murders, and hires Kolarich as his defender. In a
privileged attorney-client setting, Renfro discloses his many sins. Soon
afterward, Renfro disappears, leaving behind a wake of mayhem for which
Kolarich is now the police’s main person of interest . . . including a
killing to which he is intimately connected.
Faced with a murder charge and
unable to prove his own innocence without breaking his oath, Kolarich
must hunt to learn the truth about Renfro, the series of brutal
killings, and why he’s been set up to take the fall. The answers will be
beyond anything he could have imagined.
