Putnam NY: 2002 First edition, first printing, mint, new/unread in a flawless dustjacket, signed by the author.
You can pick your friends, they say, but you can't pick your family. And lately, Mike Daley's family has been keeping him very busy. An ex-priest, ex-public defender, and ex-corporate lawyer, Daley and his former wife, Rosie Fernandez, run their own San Francisco criminal defense firm - they weren't so good at being married, they discovered, but they are a pretty good legal team. Most of their cases are fairly small-time, which is why it is surprising for the person accused of murdering movie director Richard (Big Dick) MacArthur to be calling them - except that the accused is Rosie's own niece Angelina. That case is bad enough, but the family problems don't end there: Rosie's brother, Tony, may be on the wrong end of a strongarm graft proposal the son of one of the firm's lawyers has just been busted on a drug charge Mike is having a clandestine affair with a woman judge...and Rosie herself has a dark secret that may make all of it seem irrelevant.
