Editorial Reviews


"One of today's best writers of legal thrillers."
"Forster does what one expects of a good writer of legal thrillers, i.e., drives the plot through unexpected twists without overstretching the bounds of credible law. But Forster adds a bonus by transcending the flat stereotypes of the genre and creating, instead, diverse and realistically drawn characters." - Publishers Weekly
"A riveting legal whodunit." - USA Today

"Perfect. . .Impossible to put down."- CBS legal correspondent, Laurie Levinson

"Blending complex psychological character portraits with spot-on accurate courtroom drama, Forster's riveting legal thriller keeps the plot twists coming until the last, satisfying page." - Alafair Burke

"Fast Paced. . .a chilling conclusion." - D.W. Buffa
