Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Lawyer Hannah Dain is on the hot seat in more ways than one in Phelan's second Pinnacle Peak mystery (after 2002's Heir Apparent), which vividly evokes the Arizona desert and thrills with convincing legal detail. Hannah has joined her older sister Shelby and her father Richard in what she had hoped would be a productive relationship in the family law firm of Dain & Dain. Instead, Hannah has been snubbed by her father and goaded by her sister for reasons that only gradually become apparent. Hannah finds solace in long, hard desert rides on her bicycle and allies in her staunch secretary Clementine, young file clerk Tad Whitfield and the firm's computer expert, Cooper Smith—all appealing supporting characters. Still, with her prospects at the firm so bleak, she plans to give up and take a job in Boston. Then an IPO she initiated blows up, threatening to leave Hannah and the firm in the lurch. The dangers are not merely legal but physical as someone seems ruthlessly intent on destroying her and Dain & Dain. Hannah needs all of her training and resolve to unravel the tricky legal maneuvering and all of her athletic strength and courage to survive the desiccating heat of an Arizona summer. While father Richard and sister Shelby are drawn too starkly in black and white, Hannah makes a sympathetic and appealing heroine likely to have an interesting future.

From Booklist

Pinnacle Peak, a small Arizona desert town, provides the setting for this corporate crime novel. Business lawyer Hannah Dain, who joined the family firm after law school, has had it with her cold father and antagonistic sister. But just as she is poised to accept a lucrative job in Boston, a glitch in a routine IPO derails her plans. Hannah's alleged mistake could cost the firm $2 million in damages--and does nothing to improve her relationship with her father and sister. Although she proves that the IPO mistake was not hers, Hannah opens a can of worms that will ultimately place her life in danger. As she and the police try to identify who is behind the plan to discredit Dain & Dain, a colleague who knew too much is murdered. Although the plot is at times predictable--of course, someone will fall into that open mine shaft--Phelan creates appealing characters and paints a vivid portrait of the Arizona desert. A nice alternative for legal-thriller fans tired of the Grisham high-concept steamroller. Jenny McLarin
