Steve Martini's ninth Paul Madriani novel places the ace San Diego defense attorney in a distinctly prickly situation. The murder of a legal scholar/provocateur makes front-page headlines because of the racist implications of his writings. The arrest of a young man with connections to hate groups only makes the case more volatile. Madriani's decision to defend the homicide suspect ignites a firestorm that leads eventually to the Supreme Court. A tightly threaded legal thriller.
