Meet Mike Daley. Ex-priest. Ex-public defender. Ex-husband. And as of yesterday, ex-partner at Simpson & Gates, one of San Francisco's most prominent law firms. Today he's out on his own, setting up a private practice on the wrong side of town. Then his best friend and former colleague is charged with a double murder. Daley has his first client - and is instantly catapulted into a high-profile case involving the law firm that just booted him." "The victims are one of Simpson & Gates's most powerful partners and a beautiful young associate. There's a suicide note on the partner's computer, but neither the police nor the ambitious district attorney believe it's authentic - and they think the man they've arrested is the killer. It's up to Mike Daley to prove them wrong, but time is very short." "As Daley prepares his case, he begins to uncover the firm's dirtiest secrets - but he also discovers that his friend, too, has a lot to hide. Even as the trial is under way, Daley and his investigators are still digging for evidence that will clear their client. Daley comes to realize that ambition, politics, greed, and long-standing grudges will play just as important a role in the outcome as truth and justice.
