"In his debut novel, Shamas fictionalizes a horrifying murder case from his long career as a defense attorney. The author's prosaic approach to the genre is deeply engrossing. Characters behave like real people, not larger-than-life figures. Readers are granted unusual behind-the-scenes access as the legal team grapples with setbacks and questions the innocence of a client accused of a serious, disturbing crime.
"[T]he book offers a compelling and eerie look at the American justice system." ~ Kirkus Reviews
"Ralph Shamas is a very gifted writer and can keep the suspense on a high level. Once you pick up this intriguing novel, you will not want to put it down. Highly recommended." ~ Readers Favorite
"I really found myself riveted by this novel....I was totally fascinated by [the] story." ~ Paige Lovitt for Readers View; Seattle Post Intelligencer
