Book Description
 

LIFE SENTENCE by David Ellis - SIGNED FIRST EDITION BOOK

Putnam: NY 2003 First edition, first printing, mint, new/unread, flawless dustjacket, signed by author.

Line of Vision, David Ellis's debut, garnered resounding praise. "Expertly written [and] intricately plotted," hailed the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. "A surprisingly fresh take on the legal thriller" (San Francisco Chronicle), it inspired words like "seductive" (BookPage), "spellbinding" (Publishers Weekly), and "stylish" (Kirkus Reviews). In Life Sentence, Ellis brings us a second legal thriller, again evocatively set in an unnamed Chicago, in a Byzantine world of big-city politics full of payback and promise, ambition and disgrace. Jon Soliday is legal counsel to a powerful politician-also his childhood best friend-who is running for governor. The two have shared political success and undying loyalty. They also share a dark secret from the summer of 1979: a party that resulted in the death of a teenage girl. Soliday was implicated but, through his friend's political connections, escaped legal trouble. Soliday remembers little from that night, but carries an uncertain guilt he can't shake. Now, as the players from 1979 fall prey to an unknown killer, Soliday is himself accused of murder. And as the puzzle unfolds, the people he most suspects are those he has entrusted with his defense-his ambitious defense attorney and his oldest friend. A man's past, both what he remembers and what he fears, has never felt so crushing-and may well leave him without a future. David Ellis's Line of Vision won the Edgar Award for Best First Novel. He is a partner in a Chicago law firm and recently served as Deputy Counsel to the Speaker of the Illinois House of Representatives.
