Book Description


Brad Meltzer's first novel, The Tenth Justice, was an instant New York Times bestseller when published as the launch title of Rob Weisbach Books. At the youthful age of 27, Meltzer was the youngest novelist on bestseller lists across the country. Paperback rights to the book were sold at auction to Warner Books for a seven-figure sum, and the movie rights were optioned by Fox 2000. Meltzer even flirted with Hollywood stardom, playing himself as an extra in Woody Allen's upcoming film.

One year later, 28-year-old Meltzer has written his much anticipated second novel, Dead Even, an energetic legal thriller that pits husband against wife in a shocking catch-22 situation. Following a six-month stint of unemployment, Sara Tate is eager to relaunch her career in the New York district attorney's office. However, when budget cutbacks are announced, the last hired is the first fired, and Sara's job is in jeopardy. Determined to keep her job in the DA's office, Sara is coerced by colleagues to take a case that will keep her in trial for months. The one thing that she doesn't know is that the case -- intended for a senior staffer -- is not what it appears to be: an apparently routine burglary hides a deadly conspiracy.

Meanwhile, Sara's husband, Jared, a defense attorney, has been warned by his firm's superiors that he needs to bring in new clients or he won't make partner. With this need for new clients, he jumps at the opportunity to take a case defending a wealthy new client. But soon Jared discovers that he's been set up. This wealthy new client is the same one Sara is set to prosecute. They both face the ultimate peril: Win the case at all costs or the other will die.
