FALLS THE SHADOW by William Lashner - SIGNED FIRST EDITION BOOKSee all titles by William Lashner.
A beautiful young woman is dead, her husband convicted of the
murder. In seeking a new trial for the husband, defense attorney Victor
Carl must confront not only a determined prosecutor and a police
detective who might have set up his client, but also a strange little
busybody named Bob.
Bob has the aspiration, one could even say
compulsion, to help those around him. And it usually works out well for
all concerned, except when it ends in blood. But Victor doesn't know
that ... yet.
Thanks to Bob, Victor is suddenly dressing better,
dating a stunning woman, and his economic prospects and teeth are both
gleaming. It's all good, until Victor finds a troubling connection
between Bob and the murdered wife. Is Bob a kind of saint or is this
obsessive Good Samaritan in reality a murderer?
Filled with the
keen wit, deep poignancy, twisting suspense, and dark realism that has
entranced readers, impressed reviewers, and made William Lashner's
previous novels bestsellers, Falls the Shadow is a riveting novel that is sure to leave readers eager for more.
